Hi Experts

I am using my modem for voice calls only.

However, when someone calls it the modem autoanswer kicks in.  How do I turn off the autoanswer feature?

Greetings, TL208 !

To turn off auto answer, with Internet Explorer open, go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections. Select "Never dial a connection".  Click OK.

Best wishes!

TL208,

Go to Settings > Dialup Networking.  Right click on your ISP connection and select Properites. Select the Scripting tab and type in the command.

Sorry - I dont think I can do this.

I dont use the modem to connect to an ISP.  I only use the voice part to make telephone calls.  I dont have a dialup connection, as I have cable service.

Then go to Control Panel > Modem > Properties > Connection tab > Advanced, and then post the script.
