How to turn off the dialup sound


Is there any way to turn off the dialup sound on win xp when you try to connect to the internet on a dell computer? I went in to modems and turned off volume but I still get the sounds.

I had to test to confirm you are right, turning the volume "off" only lowers it.

So here's what you do, go to the Modem > Properties >Advanced: Initialization settings field and add this:


That's a M zero

Frankly I don't like not having the reassuring sounds telling me it is connecting, but it works.
