Select a country/region

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use this procedure to configure the country or region in which you are operating the modem. Some countries and regions require slightly different behavior from a modem to be compatible with the phone system in that country or region.

Any user account can be used to complete this procedure.

To select a country/region

  1. In Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Phone and Modem Options.


In Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, open Control Panel. In View by, click either Large icons or Small icons. Click Phone and Modem.

  1. In the Phone and Modem dialog box, on the Modems tab, select the modem that you want to configure, and then click Properties.

  2. On the Advanced tab, in Country/Region select, click the country/region from which you are dialing.

Additional considerations

  • You might not be able to configure your modem to accommodate the telephone networks of different countries/regions. If Country/Region Select does not appear, contact your modem manufacturer for an update.
