    how do i mute my modem so that it won't make all that noise when it dials up to the internet? thanks in advance!

    Lonman Bleh!

    I don't have a modem myself so i'm kind of shooting in the dark. Open Control Panel and see if you have a modem applet in there. If so, open it and look for the 'using modem speaker' feature.

    You have to do it in two places, the first is as lonman says in teh conrol pannel go to the phone and modem properties icon and d/c... click onto props at the bootem of the pannel after selecting your modem and set the volume to off.

    under the properties of your connection (right click on the connection under show all connections on the start menu and coose properties) there is another configure option for the modem in there... choose it and set the volume down to zero and enjoy hours of noise fee modem use

    (n.b. the names may not be 100 % as i am on a 2k comp at work and cant access my own pc with xp but the basics are the same even if the names are slightly different)
