Using the Back Up Number ?

Hi just wondering if there was anything else I needed to do .....the number 08451400101 is set up, yet on the 28/09/04 when there was 'Authentication Problems' connecting .........the back-up number mentioned didn't work just said no dial tone ?

Still new to ADSL & Would like to know where 'am going wrong when using the back-up number in emergencies ?

Appreciate any help

Thx

Is your old dialup modem still connected to a phone socket ?.

If not that is the reason for no dialtone. A DSL modem is not capable of a dialup connection.
