No carrier?

I set up my Genius External 56K modem,I did query-it worked well,but when I try do connect,modem starts dialing and then kppp writes-no carrier.

What that means?
What should I do?

It means no dial tone in the phone line.

if you connect an ordinary phone to the line, can you hear dial tone?
