How do I turn call waiting on for MSN?

The phone just rings and rings when a call is made and I am on-line (the person calling here's the ringing not me).

Anyone know how I activate the call waiting to disconnect the web when a call is recieved?

Thanks for any help!

PS I have a feeling a girl may call today and I don't want to miss the call. but, I don't want to log off the net either....

I think it is something like #70 or *70 put before the phone number

The answer is probably in here

*70 actually disables call waiting, so the person calling you would hear a busy signal. With call waiting enabled, you will sometimes get bumped off the net. I believe that if you want the modem to always disconnect when another call comes in, then the ISP and the modem both must support that feature, but don't quote me on this

*70 does disable call waiting.

I think I am screwed on this call waiting for the internet

Maybe that is a sign that I need a cell phone....

I called MSN and they said there is nothing they can do.
I just need to make sure call waiting has not been disabled. Checked it and it is not disabled
