Modem is too loud!

--EDIT--
I had it turned off in hardware setting, not in AOL, never bothered to look into that. Thanks. (although the duct tape was a pretty sweet solution)
--EDIT--


Is there any way I can get my modem to not make so much noise when I connect? I have the volume set to 0 in the config for it, but i think AOL ignores that when it connects. I tried putting a small piece of duct tape on the speaker, but I think thats starting to smell a little bit... so i think it'll be coming off shortly. Is there anything else i can try?<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by squeegee on 02/28/02 05:56 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

  1. In the AOL config you can turn off the volume. I've done it many times.

    <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i>
  2. Make sure it's turned off both in the Control Panel and AOL options (if applicable).

  3. Too late now, but putting m0 in the additional command line i think it's called would mute it.
