Do you have the modem set to answer on incoming calls (for FAX software, etc)?

Check your modem init string...it may be configured to go off-hook (answer) when it detects a ring. Where you can detect this setting depends on the communication/modem software you have installed.

In your BIOS do you have a Wake on Ring setting? You may want to disable this as well.


Just a few thoughts. Hope this helps....

Could you have installed RAS and configured to accept incoming calls ? And that incoming call is not properly configured to handle RAS ?
