Dial-up Connection



Have got a strange thing happening when I dial-up, when I first turn the machine on I can dial up without any problems about 2 or 3 times, after that if i dial up my connection just dies, packets recieved sticks at a few hundred , and my browser returns the error cannot find remote server.
At first thought this might be a DNS thing but IP addresses get no joy either cannot telnet ping etc, it looks like a healthy connection but its not, the only thing that fixes this is a restart, nothing else and believe me I have tried seems to work.
At first restarting windows was not such a big ordeal, but now its starting to really piss me off, any sort of help would be much appreciated
Many thanks in advance


I have similar problem, but mine only arises when I switch ISP's. I am currently using same solution and I must admit, it does get a bit tedious having to restart.


Me too

I think this is the same problem I'm having. IE 6 will find a couple of websites just fine, then I get a "cannot find server" error as if my connection doesn't exist. But it does exist. It's right there. I hope someone finds the answer to this before I do something foolish like install Linux.


It seems to be Zone Alarm since removing it have had no further trouble


I had the same problem, but for me it was fine once I stopped using Zonealarm Pro and stopped it from starting up with Windows. Had no problems since, running Tiny Personal Firewall now...

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
