problem with toshiba software modem
« on: December 08, 2006, 10:30:57 PM »
i ran into a rather tough problem with the modem of a toshiba satellite a105-s101 laptop. the laptop has a toshiba software modem by agere.

normally i connect to the web via dsl. but when dsl is down, i use dialup. at the start everything worked fine. then several months ago, the modem started acting up.

the phoneline i use for dialup has an extension phone. whenever i try to connect using the dialup, you can hear the extension phone ringing (dialing to be more precise). after a minute or so, you get the message "no dialtone". i tried disconnecting the extension phone but i still get the same message.

i checked device manager for the modem properties. it says the device is working properly. i tried a different phoneline but the same message comes up. i already tried checking if there's a problem with the phone. i connected a different pc and attempted to dialup. it worked just fine.

i uninstalled the modem driver then re-installed it. i even loaded an updated driver from toshiba's support site. i still get the same problem.

Try running the phone line directly from the wall jack to the PC...nothing in between...make sure it is plugged into the correct modem port...then post your results.
