The V.92 protocol modems will apparently alert you to the presence of an incoming call, provided you have "call waiting" enabled.

You need the V.92 modem that is compatable, the correct drivers and probably XP as the operating system.

Its not rocket science, its just a method of detecting the "beeps" call waiting provides.

Of course its a fine line between detecting them and the beeps actually causing the modem to fail and then disconnect.
