Modems Connecting... - Nothing happens
I have checked in device manager and the modem is reported as working OK.
However, when trying to connect I get the message "Modems Connecting..." but
nothing happens until it times out and you get the opportunity to repair.
Windows then reports that there is nothing wrong. As I try to connect I get
no sound from the modem but the phone works.

Can anyone help please.

Kind Regards
Mick

I have registered just to post a reply to this as I also had this
problem and have finally figured it out.

In my case 'Operator-assisted calls or manual dialing' had somehow been
activated for the dial up connection.

To disable it,


- Open 'Network Connections'
- Select the dial-up connection, press the ALT key, click the
Advanced menu, and then click Operator-Assisted Dialing. (If
operated-assisted dialing is enabled, Operator-Assisted Dialing on the
Advanced menu is selected.)

For me, this solved the problem - the modem then dialed out as
expected.

Cheers.
