To quiet your modem during the dialing process, select Settings from the Start menu, Control Panel, then double-click the Modems icon. Select your modem in the upper box, choose Properties, Connection, then Advanced. In the Extra Settings box, type ATM0, where the last character is a zero, not the letter "O." This modem string setting instructs your modem to remain quiet during the dialing process. Click OK twice, then Close.
