No dialup sounds

  dangermouse 14:57 08 Mar 03

When connecting to my dialup account, I can't hear the tones through the speaker. All other programs using audio work OK.

I checked modem properties, and under 'speaker volume', instead of ranging from Off to High, there is only a choice of On or Off - it's in the On position.

The modem is SoftK56 with latest driver - any ideas ??

Is your modem set to Pulse Dialing instead of Tone Dialing?

Tone dialling.

which o/s are you using?I dual boot 98se and xp pro.I hear all the noises on 98,but nothing on xp.Still connects ok,though.

My o/s is XP Home. When I right click on the volume icon in the systems tray and the on "Open volume control" I get a dialogue box with 7 sliders. The one second from the right is "phone" which controls my modem sound.

Did you ever hear any dial up noise. When I changed my modem I lost the dial up sounds because the modem card didn't have a loud speaker. Most modem noises come from its own loudspeaker. Unless it has software to use the systems sound card.

Most computer systems have a small speaker in the base of the case - I've always presumed, because of the quality, that this is also used by the modem, especially as you can turn the modem sound low, medium or high.

It's in Settings>Control Panel>Modem>General tab, where you can adjust the volume slider.

As I said in an earlier post, is it because you use xp?I have never had it since installation.Has anybody else got modem sound on xp?

I have XP and have the dial-up tones but have turned them off.I did it by:-Right click on IE icon on desktop,click on properties,click on connections,properties,click configure under modem and there is a box to tick(or untick)for"enable modem speaker".Hope this helps
