  1. A USRobotics Sportster 33.6, April 1997 version, which is ID'd by my PC, and can communicate with the PC. However, when I try to go online in 98 or XP with it, the modem speaker makes the dialing noises, but does'nt pick up the line. Any ideas as to whats wrong?

    If it's because of line noise, you could try adding "ATS10=200" to your connection scripts (Window$ has that extra parameters thing somewhere in modem properties). S10 means carrier detect delay, setting it to 255 would mean "never hang up".

    doubt its line noise

    I'll try the tweak guide. Can't really be line noise, as it does not seem to see the line as exsisiting
