I posed this on another forum and got nothing back...I'm hoping someone here knows how to remedy this problem. Thanks! This is a question I've been meaning to ask for a while. My internal modem, when I first got my iBook, made the typical dial and handshake sounds when I would dial a connection. I can't remember when it stopped, but it no longer makes a sound when it is dialing. I'm running an iBook G4 12" 1.2 GHz with 768 MB RAM. Does this have anything to do with a modem script (I read something about this and it mentioned a modem script, but I don't think it solved the issue for the other user). I checked the settings for the modem in the Network preference pane. The radio button for Sound is set to On. It might have happened to me after the Tiger upgrade as well. I'm not sure. Could it be a Tiger issue? Any help anyone can provide is appreciated. Thanks!
