Error 679 - Cannot Detect Carrier
This error usually means that the modem cannot detect the signal on the phone line.
Most Common Causes are:
- Phone line not connected properly, pull out, plug back in both ends.
- No dial tone, dead line, call your telephone company (on your cell phone or another working line)
- Do you need to dial a number to get an outside line? If so, enter it at the start of the number to be dialed,
- Do you have any other programs running that might have control of the phone line? (og: procom, fax software,
etc..).. If so, stop these applications and see if that helps.
In Most cases, it's a physical line issue, dead (cut) phone line are the most common causes. If you can pick up
another phone (on hte same line) in the house, and you have dial-tone, you can narrow the problem down to the source.
