Originally, my dialup modem would give "No dial tone" if it received either no dial tone at all, or a "Stutter" dial tone. Now it just goes through a full cycle, and either reports a timeout or dials repeatedly. I would like to have it back how it was. On looking at the Hayes codes, it seemed that I should have X4 opposite "No dial tone detection, but that seems to do nothing. My present config is at http://members.iinet.net.au/~tomlai1/edit_modem.png Can anyone please advise me? Being on a dial-up connection with a message bank, ofthen the stutter tone is our only way of knowing that a message has been left. Doug.
