Modem connects at one location and not another



I have a laptop with a dial-up connection. It connects at one phone
location in our neighborhood. However, it will NOT connect at the home
phone. We have tried two other laptops (friends) and they both connect
while hooked up to the phone line. However, my modem will not connect.
The diagnostics runs well on it and it is successful, so the modem is
trying to dial out. But it hangs after getting a dial tone and dialing
the phone number - never hear the modem connection signals. Please does
anyone have any suggestions? I'm using Windows XP Home.
