Modem Problem Dial Out Problem -- Error #678--No Response

My USR FAX 56K modem dials out. I can hear it do so on a phone that's
connected to the same line. I get a msg #678 that says no response. It seems
like the causes are limited. I'm pretty confident it's dialing a good
number. Suggestions? I'm using a current driver.

You are absolutely correct that I had a similar post going; however, the nut
of the problem is 678 and is obscured by the depth of the thread. If it
cannot be solved by advertising 678 in this group, then this is not the
place to post it, and I will withdraw my interest on the topic here.

You say you are "pretty confident" that you are dialing a good number. You
might try going to the website of a local ISP and get one of their dialup
numbers and call it. It won't authenticate, but at least you'll "know" that
you are dialing a number that has a modem at the other end and you can see
if it answers. Just a thought.

They never have, but thanks for the advice. I was out of touch for two weeks
on family matters, and am back onto this problem. Unfortunately, I forgot
that I had started this with another post, and just recently began back
there. Ah, the twists and turns of life.
And please don't let the net cops discourage you. Ask away.

As mentioned in my post above made a few minutes ago, my latest story on
this is now at Re: Installing an External Modem (U.S. Robotics 56K FAX).

To try to end this particular thread, I'm going to continue over there.
