Internet Tip: Control Your Modem Volume

Share this content

If you don't like the screech of your dial-up modem as it connects, you may want to consider changing the volume, which can be done with just a few key strokes.

In Windows, go to Start|Settings|ControlPanel|System|Device Manager, and select your modem from the Modems branch. Click Properties, select the Modem tab, and adjust the slider for speaker volume. Caution: Think twice about silencing it completely - it can be very reassuring to hear that screech and knowing that everything is working properly!
