I have a new modem in this PC that works fine.But this line gets calls,Like the junk mail gets to the yahoo box.I think the thing jumped to call waiting without me doing that.It get a call then opens the modem line to ask me if i want the call or reconnect the modem.Do you know the path to get to the switch that lets me avoid the unwanted break in the line for a call I dont want?

Click on start, settings, control panel. Open "modems". Then "dialing properties". Put a checkmark in "disable call waiting". Then enter the number to "disable". Most local phone books have the codes to disable.

Most local phone companies let you use *70 to turn off call waiting for the current session. Call waiting is re-enabled when you end the session (hang up). You can put *70 in the dial string in front of the phone number of your internet provider.

But Dog's Friend is absolutely correct...

Put the *70 in front of your dial-up ISPs' phone number in your dialer and you should be good to go...
