Dreampi fax modem only lighting up one light

Post#1 » Mon Apr 20, 2020 8:59 pm

Hi all,

I’m trying to play some quake 3 online and I set up my dreampi again. However I noticed one of the lights on the USB modem wasn’t lit and I’m getting an error message on the game saying “no dial tone.” I ordered this modem about 2 years ago from the Dreamcast live website. I can post a video of my pi startup if that can help. Thanks :)

Only getting one light on the USB modem means there's an issue on the Pi side. The DreamPi software isn't starting up. 99% of the time, it's because it can't detect an internet connection. There's a comprehensive troubleshooting guide here that you should look at.

When I get this, I just restart my Pi. It might take a couple of attempts but it tends to sort it self out.

When I had this issue it had to do with the line voltage inducer not working properly.

The line voltage inducer has zero effect on the modem lights. It's completely software-related. You should get two lights on the modem even if you don't have a phone cable or inducer plugged into it.
