Error 680: There was no dial Tone
  • Definition:  Error 680 means there was no dial tone when the modem attempted to connect to EarthLink.
  • Possible Resolution:  Check to make sure you have an available phone line plugged into your Windows 7 dial modem and that you’re not talking on that line when you try to dial.
Error 602: The port is already open
  • Definition:  Error 602 usually happens when you attempt to connect using a connection that is already connected.  It can also happen if the modem did not correctly disconnect after the previous connection.
  • Possible Resolution:  Disconnecting from the connection first or rebooting the computer if necessary will usually resolve this issue.

 

Error 630: The port was disconnected due to hardware failure
  • Definition:  Error 630 usually means your dial modem is not properly installed.
  • Possible Resolution:  Reinstall your modem using the correct drivers provided by the manufacturer for Windows 7.  You may need to consult with your hardware’s manufacturer to be sure you modem will work with Windows 7.

 

Error 650: The Remote Access server is not responding
  • Definition:  Error 650 is a generic error displayed when Windows cannot determine exactly why a connection failed.
  • Possible Resolution:  Due to the generic nature of this error possible fixes include verifying your username and password in the connection, making a new connection, using a different EarthLink access number, checking for line noise or even reinstalling TCP/IP in Windows 7.
