hello from poland

i have compaq presario 2500. also have problems with conexant modem. according to my competence AT&CLS Command is not fundamental in effective dial-up conecting. i saw query modem info that had this command not supported but they were working ok. AT is one of the command that u can configure manualy. if u are iterested i'll send a catalog of basic modem commands. my problem is: when I try to establish dial-up connect info patch shows error 680: the device is not responding. all configurations and cables are good. computer is finding the device.

try going into the device manager and remove the modem and then restart computer and see if modem is detected and the driver is put back in. If it comes backand driver is put in and still cannot connect probably a bad modem

Re: hello from poland

yes, Bill probably you're right. I had my drivers reinstaled and there is still the same problem. Thanks for reply

Lucas,

Try using Hyperterm to talk to your modem.

Re: hello from poland

Yes Ron, good point - I've tried to talk to my modem also with hyperterminal and:
- when i make an incoming call to my computer - it registers the incoming call but cannot receive it
- it cannot make an outgoing call, the number i try to connect is not registering any phone calls
- there maybe an issue with cables cause neither the phone plug is attached to my computer nor is unpluged the modem reacts the same way: error 680, and sounds like the one in the telephone when line is busy; i guess my modem just can't see the phone line; i have two lines to my disposal: the telephone line (1)and the one from my manufacturer (2) - but i cant connect neither using 1 nor 2; i've compared them - they are not the same; number of lines in 1 is the same as in 2 [two lines in RJ11 plug] but placed in different position.

Hi Lucas!

At first you'll check which lines are connected to your wall outlet and if they are corresponding to your cable. Normally the RJ11 connector has the analog lines on mid contacts.

GO borrow the phone line form the nearest fax machine for a test. It could be that your jack is not properly pinned or that it is not a POTS line.

Re: hello from poland

Anyway, thanks everyone who was willing to help me try to fix the problem.
