Resolution

  1. Is there a modem handshake sound? If not the telephone access number is probably wrong in some way.
  2. Disable Area Code and Dialing Properties. If the area code and Dialing properties are set incorrectly, this error may results. For instructions on how to disable them click here.
  3. Try lowering the fifo buffers, setting the max speed to 57600 in your modems settings.
  4. Try adding several commas after the access number. eg: 570-555-5555,,,
