Modem problems

Hi

Since yesterday I've been unable to get on the 'net reliably. Sometimes when I try to dial out XP just sits there claiming it's dialling indefinitely (no tone, dialog appears saying "Dialing <isp number>"). Sometimes, it does connect, but the PC immediately freezes (no keyboard or mouse response, hard reset required). And sometimes XP thinks I don't have a modem installed and the Modems Control Panel shows that my "Best Data Fax Modem" is not present.

A day earlier it was fine. Yesterday it worked fine once out of about 15 attempts at connecting.

What could be wrong?

Thanks
Vik

i would personaly get a external modem, they just seem better than internal ones, us-robotics data modems are very good.

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
