Hi, After an electrical storm, and short power cut, yesterday, my internal NetoDragon 56k Voice Modem will only give the "No Dial Tone. Make sure modem is correctly connected to the computer and phone line message". My external Trust 56k V92 Modem is still operating fine, on the same phone line!! Having checked all connections and changed the PC/Phone cable, with no luck, I just wondered if any one may have advice before I replace the internal modem?? Which I could do without just after Christmas!! Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine had his answer machine replaced FOC by BT following a lightning storm. Might be worth a shot?

The modem has blown - this is the normal failure symptom after such conditions.

You also need a surge protector that incorporates a telephone socket to prevent this happening again.
