Q: Solved: Windows 2000 SP4- has modem and phone dialer- can't get modem to work- Help

Windows 2000

I know I have the modem hooked up right, I know the dial up is hooked up right, It keeps saying there is no dial tone so I unchecked the dial tone detection and you could hear the modem dial up right away but it would dial once and then nothing. There is a phone dialer hooked up on this computer will that make a difference if it will dial out or not? there is only one place to plug the RJ11 line in. Most have the phone jack and the line jack this one doesn't. This guy had a bunch of spyware and a few trojans etc on his computer and asked it I would help him. I caught a bunch of stuff but I have to be able to dial up so I can update the programs I am running. Need some suggestions, Thanks The modem is a HCF 56K MCI Modem and like I said it is hooked up right you can query it and it gets answers and no dial tone but unchecking the dial tone detection box you can then hear it dial up but does it once and then nothing. I no the line is good.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I had to download the updated drivers for my computer that has windows 2000 loaded on another computer. The drivers were too big to copy to a 3 1/4 floppy, so I copied the drivers to a cd disc. When I try to update the drivers using the cd disc, the pop up screen say "this is not a valid mfg hardware update." I know they are valid because I copied them from the mfg website. How can I get these drivers installed in c:\winnt folder since the first place the installation looks for is files that are under this particular folder first and then ask if you have disk. Any help will be gladly apppreciated. Thanks

(cross-posted from Microsoft TechNet - apologies to those who read both sites)

I have an Amoi WP-S1 3G mobile phone (a.k.a. 3 SkypePhone). It comes with 32bit WinXP driver and application CDROM that includes a modem driver and modem client app. I have successfully installed and used them on XP Pro.

In Windows 7 32bit Home Premium, I can successfully install all drivers and apps from the CD. The PC-Synch app works but the Modem app cannot connect. The modem app opens OK and identifies the WP-S1 as an available device, but when I hit the Connect button, I get:

"The system could not find the phone book entry for this connection.error code is:623"

What I have tried so far:
- Closing my WiFi connection first
- Uninstalling all of the WP-S1 drivers (which were found automatically in W7) and reinstalling from my CD-ROM
- Create a dial-up connection in W7 Network Centre using the phone number from the WP-S1 modem app Settings window (*99#), leaving the username/password blank as it is in the WP-S1 app Settings.

When I got it going on WinXP, I did nothing special; it just worked.

Googling error 623 suggests that there might be some connection missing in the W7 Networking Center that can be added (hence my attempt at creating a manual dialup connection).

- In W7 Devices, I have no unidentified devices - all correctly installed

Follow up: finally managed to get it working in W7. When I install the modem client in XP, it also creates an XP dial up network connection. In Windows 7 it did not create the network connection. I had a couple of attempts to manually create the Dial-up Network, but it did not correctly identify the Modem. I don't really know what I did differently, but today when I tried to create a dial-up connection, it found the modem successfully.

I set all the settings in the dial-up network the same as XP and then tried dialing directly from XP - without the supplied client app. It failed a few times, but after a reboot it worked.

Just bought a new customized HP desktop. I do a lot of faxing through my computer and my last notebook had a fax modem built in. HP tells me I'll need an external fax modem (which plugs into the USB port) if I want to fax with the new machine. Then, the RJ45 of the phone line (coming from the SAME cable as my internet and television) goes into the USB fax modem.

Why? If my internet and television and my phone are all from the same cable company cable, why can't software in my computer dial the fax number through the internet cable plugged into my computer?

I don't want to fax through some internet company I have to pay. I want to scan documents using my scanner then fax them out using the Windows fax application.

I currently use XP but the new machine will have Vista.

HP also tells me internal fax modem cards are a thing of the past, replaced by the USB modem. True?

Hi, I have Sky Broadband which comes with a Sagem router and I have a BELKIN Wireless G Desktop Network Card which for the first 6 months connected fine, although sometimes it took a while to find connection and dropped out a few times but it did connect in the end. It then started failing to find connection at all so started using partner's Nokia N95 (which has a built-in Modem) and has always connected first time and can always see connection. Today I brought a LINKSYS Wireless-N USB Network Adapter with Dual-Band which can see the connection and my computer can now see connection through "MY Network Places" but can still not connect at all but phone is again still working.

A few months ago I also tried another BELKIN card but a much better one to what I've got but again it didn't work and if it managed to connect it was only once and then couldn't find connection again so took it back.
We live in a granny flat built on back of partner's mum's house and router is by her front door as that's where phone line is and the computer is in our flat with one wall in between and is approximately 10-15 metres apart. So I originally thought this was the problem but now because phone has no problem and never has even before when we just used to go on internet on phone not through computer I'm assuming it must be something else.

I have a Acer computer with a Vista 32 bit operating (SP2) system and 3GB of memory.

About two weeks ago, I began to have the following two problems:

1. I have a MultiTech MT5634ZPX voice/fax modem and use Classic Phone Tools as a Dialer/Fax tool, I also use a headset (?) which plugs directly into my fax card (speaker and mike). This setup worked perfectly until recently.

Now when I attempt to use the dialer, I get an error message regarding a dll file (error msg attached). When I exit the error msg my browser appears but it doesn't work properly. Faxes never get sent and phone calls ring once but then "nothing". Ive tested the phone dialer w/my cell and it rings, but there is nothing on the other end when I answer and no audio (other than the dial tones and the first ring) on the phone tool.
I have contacted the dialer's mfgr as well as the modem mfg. Both confirmed "i do have a problem"; neither was able to offer a vialble solution (other than to call the other).


2. Windows update. My last successful update (it's set for automatic) was Feb 9, 2010. Since then, no matter how I do it, updates are unsuccessful. Believe me I've tried a myriad of different things including several dll re-register attempts all suggested by MS on their help pages.

Hi all,

My PC seems to have been infected with some kind of dialer that disconnects my adsl connection and then attempts to dial out through my old 56K modem.

Before this happens, my firewall software detects that the file msnmns32.exe is trying to run. If I let it run, the adsl connection is disconnected, and the 56k modem starts trying to dial.

I have not found any reference on the web to msnmns32.exe. Does anyone know what this file is?

I have tried fixing this with adaware, and my usual virus software, but the problem remains.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

I use the Windows Dialer (dialer.exe) to keep lots of phone numbers and to dial out when I want to call.
There are probably fancier phone dialers available, but I find this one totally adequate for my needs. The problem is that I cannot find where it stores the data on the contacts I have entered. I just had to reinstall windows which meant that I had to retype in all of the contact information rather than reload it from a backup made before I formatted my disk.
This is not a major issue. I just want to see if anyone has any information about this.
Thanks,

A:Solved: Windows Phone Dialer Contacts Migrate

The speed dial entries are stored in the Registry at this key:

Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Dialer\Speeddial
You would have to export that key to a .reg file to back it up, then after a re-install, simply double click the file to merge it into the registry and re-enter your speed dial list.

This batch command will export that key to a file name dialer.reg into the My Documents folder of the currently signed on user. Copy the line into Notepad, then save it someplace with a .bat extension. Be sure to change the Save as Type: setting to All Files from Text Documents (*.txt)

Double click the file when ever you want to back up the data. If your backup program backs up the My Documents folder, the dialer.reg file will be in your backup ready to be used.
Code:
reg export "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Dialer\Speeddial" "%userprofile%\My Documents\dialer.reg"

Hey, I am trying to install a USB WWAN modem on my Vista laptop (2.33 ghz, 2 gb ram) and when i follow the instructions on the software provided, it says to insert the usb modem and let windows recognize it and install it, and go from there.

the problem is, once i put in the usb drive, vista recognizes that there is a new device in, but once it tries to install it, it won't recognize any drivers on the disc thats inserted, and doesn't find anything on the rest of the computer.

I would say check the mfg website and see if you cant find some updated drivers for it or even check google and see if anyone has "hacked" the XP drivers into working with Vista. I know that Vista's been having lots of issues with past and current third party products and so it could just be that your modem is incompatible with Vista or you just need to look a bit more for newer drivers.

A:unable to connect using modem to internet on windows 2000

Hi,

Why not give the following a try:

1) Download the newest and latest drivers from the modem manufacturer’s website. (I know, you have a disk, but download the newest and best anyhow.

2) Enter Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and DELETE any references to any modem.

3) Shut down and physically remove the modem and then put the modem back in PCI slot #3 (Third slot down from the AGP slot)

4) Boot up and enter the BIOS setup menu.

5) In the BIOS setup menu find the PnP area. If you are running WinXP or win2k, then DISABLE Pnp….however, if you are using Win98, then make sure it is ENABLED.

6) Save and Exit

7) Boot back up and when the computer finds your modem, then load the drivers that have been downloaded from the manufacturer’s website. It may tell you that the latest and best are already installed, but install them anyway. (for example, WinXP and win2k only have v.90 drivers and not the most recent v.92 that are needed for best operation) If it says they are not digitally signed, then load them anyway. This is a long story, but I can assure you it is a money issue and a rip off from Microsoft in my opinion.

This should get you going!

hello, hope you can help here..

I reinstalled a pc for a friend of mine, reformatted and reinstalled the OS. so now it is a Dell Optiplex GX260 running XP Pro. the network card is Intel Pro/1000 and has the latest drivers updated and checks out fine in device manager.

Overall it is now working perfectly, except for this problem with internet connection.

the workstation connects fine from my home, via my ADSL wired router. e.g. I downloaded SP3 in no time at all.
​my friend has a Cable broadband service in his house. this service is also fine, other PCs/Macs have used it (including my laptop) and there are no problems.

BUT for some reason, when the GX260 is connected to the cable bb service, wired directly to the cable modem, the connection is incredibly limited. e.g. google.com will load, and maybe google.com/news will load if you are lucky, but anything slightly heavier, e.g. hp.com, dell.com etc, will only load meta data and eventually time out.

I spoke with the ISP and did some live testing, they confirmed the TCP/IP settings were configured ok and the connection checked out fine from their end (as the other PCs proved anyway, as they had no problem connecting using the same cable bb modem setup).

normally I can find solutions but this one really stumps me as all components in the mix seem to have proved they are ok in other configurations, only when they are together does the problem exist!

apart from ditching either the service or the Dell, what can be done?... Read more

Can someone please help?. My computer will be on, but not online, and my home phone will ring and after the second ring my computer modem starts reacting like a fax modem and starts ringing and then says your call did not go through please try again. What can I do to stop this from happening? My modem is just automatically reacting after the second ring and I don't want this.
I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.

A:phone ringing in on modem like fax

Hello CHickerson,

Welcome to the Vista Forums.

This should be a setting in whatever Fax software you have installed. If you don't have any fax software, then take a look at the properties/settings for your modem.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your stay.

Hi All,
Does anyone know of any problems relating to phone lines/exchanges which would cause the following...
(I'm in New Zealand BTW , I dont know if our phone system differs greatly from others)

A friend finally got set up with an ISP some months ago and has been using dial up quite happily. Suddenly and for no apparent reason her modem stopped functioning.As she was using 98se I took this to be a usual M$ wobble and took the opportunity to install Fedora C5 for her. On taking the computer back to her place we find that the thing still wont work.System-control-network gives an error 8(The connect script failed (returned a non-zero exit status).

How ever the computer works fine at my place about one K away.Her phone works fine and she has checked and re checked her connections.
When I upgraded the (desktop) computer to FC5 I threw out the old Winmodem and replaced it with a Rockwell which , as I say , works fine at my place.

I had kept her old hard drive just in case so I put it and the old Winmodem back in at my place and the damm thing works fine as well, except not at her place ?????

Help :-(

Any suggestions much appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Phone fine modem no go ??

Good Evening gaspode, that problem would have to be a line fault.
Can you possible try another machine to confirm it.
Alternatively can you get the phone company to check the line, it could be loaded down.

Aren't these kinds of problems great fun!!

Cheers, qldit.

It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me.
I have alot of calls that are incoming and outgoing and everytime, I have to get up out of my seat and get the phone. sometimes I even forget where the cordless phone is and end up losing that call. I usually stay at my computer and I was wondering if there is a third party software that supports calling through the modem on a land line so I am able to pick up and dial calls from my computer. thanks. by the way, my phone modem card is really old so there's no point of finding an third party program specifically for that one card.

I have an HP Pavilion w/ P4 2.6 gHZ PC equipped with Win XP...my problem is with my modem, which is a Broadxent by Creative 56k v92 fax modem. It works fine except that it automatically answers the phone after one ring. Now, understand that I have turned off all Fax Talk, and better yet even uninstalled that part of the software. I've even called Creative and 2 different techs gave me several initialization strings to try. None worked. I even looked in the readme file included with the modem software and tried all of those strings. I have looked all through Win XP and turned off everything I know to turn off. I am currently disabling the modem in the Device Manager when I am not using it in order to keep me sane. This is fine, but I want it to work properly. However, there is one area in XP within the modem properties section called advanced port settings that I cannot get into. I get the message that I have to have Administrator privileges, but I am the administrator. I guess this problem is two-fold. The modem and the Advanced Port Settings access. Please help, and also ignore my signature at the bottom because this is a different system.

Thanks,

I am just now starting to use my cellphone as a modem to my PC via Tethering with a USB Cable

I have Windows 7 Home Premuim on a Dell Insprion 530s.

my Cell is a Samsung Strive (A687) with AT&T for my provider.

After tinkering around with the PC studio (the software on my PC to use my phone while connected), i got it working. But, under the network Icon on the Win 7 system tray it says i am connected to "Samsung Strive 5". At one point i had 2,3,4 and now 5.

Now, i only have one phone to use. Somehow, after configuring it, it thinks (i guess) i have 5 modems?

So, how can change so that my PC only 'sees' that i have one modem connected (other that my LAN/NIC)

I want to change the connection so that it reads "samsung strive" only.

Hi, Is there any kind of an external splitter I can buy for my phone and internet modem so I can get my phone calls while I'm online?
 

A:Splitter for modem and phone?

Hi,

If you have call waiting, you can buy a Catch-A-Call unit that sells for usually around 30 bucks. It will ring when a call is coming in and you can shut down and take the call without a problem. I used to use one and they work great.
