Hi everyone, 


I haven't had dial-up internet in years. I just signed up for a free-internet service through the state called Sailor Cruise last month. I picked up my routing slip last Saturday and discovered I didn't have the right modem. So, I got a new one off WalMart.com. While my PC does recognize this modem, each time I plug the phone cord into the wall jack in my room, it says there's no dial tone. I called this internet service and the lady on the phone says that Verizon modems (the one my dad has) doesn't work for them because it has a higher voltage. I'm wondering if I should call the phone company over the wall jack in my room. 


I also plugged this same line cord into my dad's modem (which is plugged up to an outlet) while connected to the one I got off Wal Mart. It almost worked because the system started configuring the username and password, but then my computer (both laptop and desktop) terminates the connection. I don't know what to do anymore. Do I have the right equipment? What do I need to do to get this internet connection to work properly? 



Here's the link to the troubleshooting page off Sailor Cruise's website: 




I wanted to post pictures of what the two modems look like. But, I'm not able to on this browser. (I'm on Chrome btw.)
