My wives laptop doesn't connect to the web very frequently. When not in use
it's power supply remains plugged in so as to save the battery. I have
noticed that if we try to connect to the web with the power supply plugged
in there is a shrieking sound coming from modem & we can't connect. Each
time we connect now we have to unplug before we connect. As idea as to
whets the problem?

Thanks in advance

Sound like interference and may be a hardware problem.

Also, is there only one phone jack for the modem (at the laptop) or are
there two?
