Sub_title: Dial-up modem squelching

Hey, guys.

I get confused pretty easily, so my apologies if I am totally in the wrong area with this question...

I am using Dingo 4.00 with an old '98 Gateway Essential deskop. I only have access to dial-up internet and use the Gateway's default internal modem. The problem is that the horrid squelching noises from the modem are coming from the internal speaker - even when I have external speakers hooked up and headphones plugged in. Is there anyway to disable the internal speaker so that I don't have to hear that squelching?

I checked in the volume control, but it's all Greek to me Sad

I'm not quite sure where puppy keeps its registry Wink

how about entering this in a console
rmmod pcspkr
if this works then you can you use the bootmanager config thingy to blacklist the pcspkr module everytime puppy boots.

Have a look in /etc/wvdial.conf

SetVolume = 1
Init4 = ATM0

The first key, when set to one, instructs wvdial to manipulate the
modem volume settings per later commands. The second key is just
one of the commands sent to the modem before dialing (I think any
"Init{whole #}" is a permissable key). The volume commands are
(from "http://www.option.com/support/hayesat.htm"):

M0 Speaker always off

M1 Speaker on until carrier detected

M2 Speaker always on

M3 Speaker on only while answering

To disable the internal speaker in Windows, open Device Manager by right clicking on My Computer and select Properties. From there, you'll be a Device Manager tab or a Hardware tab Device Manager button depending on your version of Windows.
In Device Manager click View and click Show Hidden Devices
Then you should see a non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers by clicking the plus sign and double-click Beep.
In the "Beep Properties window, click on" Driver tab.
Under the Driver tab, if you want to temporarily disable the beep click the Stop button. If you want to permanently disable the beep in the Startup Type select guests.
