    The specifics; WindowsXP Pro, NetoDragon V56k Voice Modem

    *When I turn up the modem volume I hear a dial-tone and the dialing sound,
    but it sounds like there is an echo.
    *The dialing noise and the dial-tone noise do not seem to be in synch,
    meaning that the computer seems to dial but the dial tone continues for a
    while after the dialing starts. There seems to be a delay from when the
    modem dials to when the phone line realizes the modem is dialing -Then the
    phone line may not hear the complete number being dialed.
    * Sometimes the modem call is picked up at the ISP, and I can hear those
    familar connecting sounds, but again sounds are in an echo and they still do
    not seem to be in synch.
    * The modem will continue redialing the same or alternate numbers for quite
    some time. I can often hear a voice on the phone saying that the
    "NumberCannot Be Completed As Dialed..., Please HangUp and Dial Again".
    * When listening to the modem I notice an interrupted dial-tone. Not at the
    same speed or consistancy as when a message is waiting, but still there.
    This broken dial-tone is gone when listening to the dial-tone directly
    through a phone.

    Everything was working fine. I plugged in a new monitor and for some reason
    the modem will not connect. These 2 periphals should have nothing to do with
    each other. What is unusual is that this exact problem occurred a few months
    ago, I spent hours trying to fix it. My wife (who is not very computer
    literate) was able to finally fix the problem , she believes by changing the
    dialup phone numbers, she is not exactly sure what she did and she can't
    repeat it.

    I have checked out and verified everything I can think of, including the
    troubleshooting scripts, dialing locations, dialing rules, modem speed and
    uninstalling/re-installing ISP software.

    Please help, I need the internet. Thanks, Doug
