G3 iMac internal modem problem - Mac Networking

Hi, I use my iMac's internal modem (56K v.90) to connect to AOL. It worked fine recently, but when I turned on my computer the other day, it no longer worked. I can hear it dialing the number, and it sounds like its beginning a handshake, but then I suddenly get a steady tone, and AOL eventually tells me that my modem is not accepting its setup commands. I get the same problem in OS X and 9, so I'm not really sure what the problem is. Thank you, Paul Dorman...

    Default G3 iMac internal modem problem

    Hi,

    I use my iMac's internal modem (56K v.90) to connect to AOL. It worked
    fine recently, but when I turned on my computer the other day, it no
    longer worked. I can hear it dialing the number, and it sounds like
    its beginning a handshake, but then I suddenly get a steady tone, and
    AOL eventually tells me that my modem is not accepting its setup
    commands. I get the same problem in OS X and 9, so I'm not really sure
    what the problem is.

    Thank you,

    Your problem is with AOL...why are you using that piece of crap
    software to view the internet.
    How much is your AOL monthly? Couldn't you just use internet explorer
    and another internet provider. Wouldn't it be cheaper..Or even a free
    internet provider...for dial up..

    for your modem, doulbe check it doesn't have any lose connections. But
    it sounds like your problem is with aol..call them..

    Have you gone into Setup (via Expert) and checked to see that the correct modem
    is selected? Or let AOL do it's thing where it tries to find the modem.

    Well, I just found my Apple Hardware Test CD, and it gave me an error
    code "modm/2/3". It looks like I'll have to find something else then,
    but I thought I'd post this in case it is helpful to anyone.
