    turning off dial tones

    I have set up my modem with wvdial and it dials out with a lot of noise. Does anyone know how to turn the dial tones off?

    Add the following line(s) into /etc/wvdial.conf


    M0L0 (those are zeroes not ohs) to your dial up command string (ie. make it look like ATM0L0DT instead of ATDT), and while you're at it, add a W2 before the DT to get the correct connect speed returned.

    I went to add the stuff you suggested into wvdial.conf file and cant figure out where to add them. I have uploaded a copy of the file could you maybe show me where to add them?
    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    Baud = 460800
    New PPPD = yes
    Modem = /dev/ttySM0
    ISDN = 0
     Phone = 
     Password = 
     Username = 
     Carrier Check=no

    Re: turning off dial tones

    Glad to help:

    Please have a look at:

    wvdial.conf(5)
    http://linux.die.net/man/5/wvdial.conf

    which is the manual pages for wvdial.conf

    for your ease, I'm posting some of that page:

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyS2
    Baud = 57600
    Init = ATZ
    Init2 = AT S11=50
    Phone = 555-4242
    Username = apenwarr
    Password = my-password
    ATM0L0DT

    [Dialer phone2]
    Phone = 555-4243

    [Dialer shh]
    Init3 = ATM0

    [Dialer pulse]
    Dial Command = ATDP

    so, in your case add the line under dialer defaults. I haven't been on dial-up for two years now, and may have forgotten some of this, but it should work. If not, try

    Init3 = ATM0L0DT

    Are you using Gnome's Network Manager for Modem/Dial-Up? It has an easier way to turn the modem screech up, down and off, if I remember it rightly.
