My modem doesn’t dial out or doesn’t answer incoming calls.

Solution 1:

You may have a bad telephone cord. Try another telephone cord.

Solution 2:

If your phone system requires an access code to access an outside line, be sure to include the code in the number that you are dialling.

Solution 3:

If your voice mail alters your dial tone when messages are waiting, restore the normal dial tone by retrieving your messages before using the modem to dial out.
