    First question that springs to mind is why are you wanting to use a dial-up connection when you have ADSL??

    And secondly, do you have a filter connected to the phone-line you're trying to use?. If not, the modem will not detect a dial-tone.

    This also may seem like a strange question but do u have the telephone lead connected to the right port at the back?
