Using modem for phone calls
Hi, all. I am trying to revive an old technolgy, I guess! I want to be able to use my Win7 desktop with a DI533 Modem Blaster speakerphone modem to make and receive phone calls while I am on the computer. I have the latest OEM driver (although it is for XP) and I can dial out and hear the call on the modem speaker. I do not have a phone in the house with an earphone jack, so I am trying to get this to work with a bletooh dongle and my LG HSB700 headset. I can hear system sounds in the headset, but not the calls. The moden is a pci internal and it does have the mic and speaker jacks on it. I have tried jumpering the jacks to my sound card, with no luck, and have the BT set as the default playback and record device. I have been playing around with this for a couple of weeks. I would be most grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.
