Phone/Modem

Is it possible to have my phone connected to my internal 56k modem and for the phone to work even when the PC is switched of? I recently purchased a cable to run from my phone to the modem but nothing works

Yes you can have a phone with no problems. They should both work ok. Have you got the wires in the right way round? if you have swap them around and try I have a modem that is wired wrong and the plugs have to go into the oposite

If you are using a usb modem without external power or a pci modem card then it won't work as the mobile phone can't provide the power and neither will the computer when its switched off
