OTHER PERSON EVER EXCEED THE

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
If you have a technical problem with this product, you may wish to consult our self-help tool
“Knowledgebase” for on-line troubleshooting and solutions (www.europe.creative.com/
support)
This appendix provides tips and solutions for resolving some of the problems you might encounter with
Creative Modem Blaster V.92 External DE5721 either during installation or normal use.
Problems with
Your Modem
The modem fails to accept commands to dial or answer a call.
There may be an improper telephone line connection.
Check the following:
❑ Make sure the telephone cable is attached to the Telephone Line Jack.
❑ Check that all devices are turned on.
There is interference on the telephone line that is connected to the modem.
To solve this problem:
Try moving the telephone line away from any power source, monitor, printer or any computer cable.
The modem cannot connect to the Internet at 56,000 bps.
This may be due to line conditions in your area. Due to FCC regulations and/or line conditions, it is not
always possible to achieve the maximum data rate.
To solve this problem:
Try moving the telephone line away from any power source, monitor, printer or computer cable.
Troubleshooting B-1
The modem or communications software fails to detect that the remote user has hung up.
The modem or communications software relies on the dial tone, busy tone or silence period to detect that
a remote user has hung up.
This detection may fail due to one of the following reasons:
❑ Your local telephone system does not generate the dial or busy tone when the remote user hangs up.
❑ The silent period for the modem or communications software to detect that the remote user has hung
up is not long enough.
❑ The modem or communications software cannot detect a different dial or busy tone. For example, if
you are connecting to a PABX system, the dial or busy tone generated is different from the usual dial
or busy tone.
To solve this problem:
Prompt the remote user to respond. This may, however, result in a long delay before the communications
software responds to the remote user hanging up. To minimize this delay, modify the following settings:
❑ Voice message recording time.
❑ Number of prompts.
❑ Time to wait for a response after prompting.
Resolving Hardware
Conflicts
Hardware conflicts may occur when two or more peripheral devices are set to use the same I/O address,
IRQ line or DMA channel.
To resolve conflicts in Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows Me or Windows XP, change the resource
settings of your modem or the conflicting peripheral device using Device Manager.
Troubleshooting B-2
Resolving Conflicts
in Windows
98SE/ME
If you are unsure of which
peripheral device is causing the
conflict, you can isolate the source
of the problem by temporarily
removing all devices (except your
modem and essential devices such
as the disk controller). After that,
add the devices back one at a time
until the device that is causing the
conflict is found.
