I am having problems getting my recently built PC to connect to the internet. The modem will not pick up the line and just sits there saying "dialing". Have updated to latest modem driver, bios, via drivers and SP1. It will ocassionally (5% of time) connect ok.
Hardware is as follows (all brand new):

Athlon Xp 2400
80g wd Hd
512Mb PC2700
ATI radeon 8500 128mB
Gigabyte GA7-VRXP
Zoom V.92 PCI modem (supposedly XP ok)

PS
I am going to try the modem in my old m/c tonight, but any suggestions appreciated.

This may be a silly question, but do you hear any noise on the line when you pick up your phone? I just spent the last weekend waiting for the phone company to get the noise off my line, as it was preventing the connection from completing.

Sorted! Used hyperterminal to phone my mobile to prove modem was ok - which it was; then went to providers (Tiscali) homepage and followed their walk through instructions for setting up a new connection and bingo! Connects first and every time now. Wierd how the other (presumably wrong) set up would let me connect intermittantly.

Thanks guys.

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
