    Can anyone help??

    I've got a Zoom pci V92 modem from UK and I'm using it
    in Greece. I have got "AT+MS=V90" init string in the advanced settings section. When I log on to my isp I'm on for 5-10 minutes and the connection dies. It stays alive but all data transfer stops.

    I've got the latest drivers and I've looked on the
    zoom home page but i can't find a solution. I
    contacted my isp and they were useless, blaming
    everything but them.

    I've got:
    AMD Athlon XP 2000+
    512 DDR mem
    Soltek 75 drv4 mobo
    Win XP pro

    All patches and drivers are up to date. I usually have a few things open and accessing the net, but even if I just have IE running it still does the same.

    BTW i'm usually connected at 48-49.2kbps, is this a good connection speed for dial up??

    If any one could give me some ideas/ suggestions i'd be very greatful

    use zone alarm 5? If so go back to prior version 4xx
