Error 50 - The request is not supported.

This error may be caused by the WINDOWS FIREWALL being set to prevent incoming and/or outgoing communications on the dial-up connection.

This message would appear to be a modem hardware issue if the software solutions don't solve it. And that would mean a new modem which are extremely cheap anyway.
