Default Why do i get no dial tone on my laptop? [elonex; savannah; win98]

To start i don't know much about laptops but here goes....at the minute the modem seems to be a plugin pcmcia card with a lead and a box to convert it to a telephone plug.

the system properties shows the modem as being there and working fine but it keeps reporting no dial tone...just so you know there is nothing wrong with the connection cos i'm using it athe moment to write this.

the box plugs into that which is apparently a modem and ethernet card....the only thing i can think of is that the box says something about ethernet on the back(sorry cant find it at the moment to show) but i'm assured it is infact for a modem (still doubtful though)
