Dial-Up problem

By Islander ·
When I try to connect my laptop to a phone line with more that one line I get no dial tone. FOr example I used a phone line from a hotel front desk that has 6 lines and hooked it up to my laptop. When I try to dial-in there is not dialtone. Is thereaddition software/hardware that is needed to get this working? Any advice would be appreciated.

thanks in advanced

It is very probable that the hotel line you were trying to use was a DIGITAL line. You need ANALOG line for a modem

As answer 1 stated, it is very possible that the hotel has phones that are network devices.

If not, for connecting a "standard" phone cord to a multi-line jack, you need a line adapter.

The wireing for a dual line jack is not compatable with asingle line cable.
