hmmm this is a fix that works for broadband at times, but test it to see if maybe it'll work for you...next time you have the problem and you aren't getting any data when you reconnect...goto start-run and type in cmd.exe....at the command prompt type in ipconfig /release, then when it is done type in ipconfig /renew

only thing I can think of :p

I don't think it'll work. Where does the problem occur? Before dialing, during handshake or after?

I'd say get a new modem driver anyway. Or just remove and reinstall the driver if it has worked in XP before.

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...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
