    My 56Kpbs d-link external modem does not connect to the internet.i.e,the connecting tone that you hear from the modem speaker is somewhat 'irregular' and it keeps on going without an end
    which is not supposed to happen normally.On taking it to the d-link company,they tested it right in front of me (using my own cable and adapter) and it worked fine!!??I am sure that my drivers are all properly installed,phone line is also fine without any disturbance and my dail-up account is also a valid one.
    Pls. help me as to what else could be the problem.

    I think the problem may lie with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Contact them to see of their servers are ok, and if they have alternate numbers. Or better, get rid of it and get a new one.

    this problem also happens if there is noise or disturbance in the phone line.

    pick up the phone then press "1", after that, if the phone is completely silent then the line is ok, if you can hear some "noise" etc, then your phone wire may need to be changed.
