Try right clicking My Computer, click on properties, click on + by modems, Right click your modem, select properties, click on modem tab. Should be a volume slider slide it to the left. hit apply and ok. See if that works.
Only a junior member, but if your running Win98 try going through this...
Start menu, Settings, Control Panel, Modems Icon(should look like a phone sitting on top of small rectangle box) and once your in Modems, click on properties, and then in the middle of that tab will be a Speaker Volume slider. Move to the desired volume.
Thank you for trying to help. (1) t he volume was already turned up where you suggested.(2) I entered ATM0 in the extra settings but it had not made any difference.Still silent!.I did however make a mistake. My modem is internal (Silly me). Any further suggestions please.
The instructions I gave were for turning OFF the volume. You don't want to add that string.
Have you checked the properties of your modem as listed for ainsleygas in the first few posts? Make sure the volume there is set correctly also.
I use: L0M1
This keeps speaker on until carrier is detected, then goes off.
I also use W1 to force the reporting of modem to modem speed, instead of my modem to my computer. &D2 helps the modem to terminate the call at the end of the session. So my modem init string looks like this:
Lower case is OK, AT is not needed in Win 9x or ME. Search for "Modem initialization string" for more info.
Ichobod. Was your reply for me?Anyway there was nothing in my Extra settings box. I tried L0 M1(zero) But it made no difference. My modem is still silent when connecting to the internet. It is not a great problem and I expect I shall have to live with it.I could not find the other string you mentioned.
