Hi Jan,
I believe a fix for that, is to go to the properties of the dial up, somewhere
you will find a check box that says to dial only when a dial tone is detected.
If you uncheck this, it will dial past the different sounding dial tone.

Subject: [pcductape] Dialtone...


| I may have discovered at least part of my problem with my computer not
| detecting a dial tone.
|
| My computer is hooked into the main ( and now only) phone line. I have call
| notes which allows me to stay online without being bumped by call waiting.
| Anyone who leaves a message will trigger a page alert through my cell phone.
|
| When I kept getting the "no dialtone" message tonight, it took me several
| hours to question whether or not the pulsating dial tone (which signals a
| message has been left through Call Notes) could be the culprit. I cleared
| the message and was instantly online.
|
| Although I can't remember if I had messages waiting the times I couldn't get
| online recently, but it does sound more feasible a solution than my throwing
| the Haitian Voodoo doll away.

| PS thanks for all the grea suggestions. I am definitely going to try
| cleaning out the box on the outside of my house where the lines come in.
