T61 pulse dial up

2008-05-23, 22:49 PM
Product: ThinkPad T61 6466
Operating system: Windows Vista

Does the modem support pulse dialing? I can't dial any number.
It says: 'Modem connecting...'
that's all

Hello,
 
It has been many years since I have heard of someone needing to use pulse dialing.  Are you trying to connect to a BBS?
 
Have you tried installing terminal software and manually dialing a number by issuing an ATDP command?  If so, did that work?
 
Regards,

It may be possible that in the modem properties the "wait for dialing tone before dialing" option is selected. That gets alot of people stuck. The modem is waiting for a dial tone, which it doesn't get on some phone networks, and therefore will not dial out.

Thanks for the answer. I was in Moscow and I had to do it, because Russian phone lines use pulse dialing. ;)

I tryed to use another dialing software. Nothing.

Thank you andyP.
I tried that also. Sorry for my English.

For example, on another PC when I click `dial`, the modem made a sound (like one 'click') even without any line connected to the PC.
My laptop momem doesn't make any sounds.

Also there is another problem. I'm unable to record my skype calls as there is no option to choose Auto Mixer as out put sound. Is that ok for T61?
