I have a Toshiba Satellite. 1605CDS/4.3 Windows 98
When I try to connect to the internet all I hear is the number being dialed out, then after a few moments I get an error message that says
[Modem: Rockell HSF 56K on COM3] The modem has reported that there is no dial tone.

Hello Survce and welcome to the phone

Is this an internal modem?

Try plugging a phone into the phone line to make certain that you do have a dial tone. If you actually hear the number being dialed I would assume that you do. Check just in case though.

Also make sure that you are plugged straight into the wall with the line. Make sure there are no splitters or adapters on the line. Sometimes modems do not like them.

If possible, try it on another phone jack and phone line as well.
In the beginning there was the command line.
