    First of all, howdy everyone, told this is the place to find well thought out solutions to problems, or was that problems with well thought out solutions. Oh well.

    Anyway, my question (shoot me if it's in the wrong section) is, are you able to get the modem to automatically divert the phone (dial-up obviously) before connnecting to the net. Also, cancel diversion after I disconnect.

    I would guess that it would involve a script/init and DTMF tones, but have been unable to find info on where or how.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    You can disable call waiting. All you have to do is enable dialing rules then click properties. Its a tick box near the bottom. As for turning it back on when you disconnect. No idea.

    Thanks for the tips on call waiting, but I wish to divert to another telephone number. I'll see if I can put the string in my dial-up connection box (whatever the dtmf code would be) and hope that after the divert string, the phone resumes a dial tone.

    Don't think I explained myself well, but any ideas on how to overcome another way?

    Putting the dialing code for diversion first should help. I believe you use # and * like on the phone. Also use , if you need to wait a short period. More commas for longer period.

    For instance, the need to press 9 to get an external line will result in the dial string 9,,<number> normally.

    As for diverting back when disconnecting I believe you'll need to make a separate dialer for that which you start manually after disconnecting.
