Troubleshooting

The most common problem is that the computer will dial an area code even if not needed. To correct this, double-click My Computer and Dial-Up Networking. Then, click on the ASIS connection with the right mouse button and pick Properties with the left button. Then, uncheck "Use area code and dialing properties" and click OK. This will keep the computer from dialing the unneeded area code.

If you aren't getting a dial tone, make sure the phone line is plugged in, and make sure the cords are plugged into the right jacks.
