Have you got the BIOS set to wake on ring?
That will do it."Sometimes life is just what we make it."

Now the modem has the line tied up so you can't dial though?
Fingers computer was just keeping the phone off the hook so it was busy, it would do it out of nowhere. Hang up the computer check for dial tone, alls well. No dial tone later.
He had to replace his modem.
Are you sure the modem you put in is good?
Are the drivers right?"Sometimes life is just what we make it."
