hi all ..I have this problem that when I get disconnected from my ISP (dialup), if I redial - no app recognizes that theres a new connection .. everything is behaving as if I was disconnected (but I AM connected again) ..the only thing that fixes this is a reboot

.... I have read about this bug a long time ago and had it fixed .. but I reformatted recently and cant find the fix again .. anyone ?

I had the same problem, first try and find new modem drivers, if this doesn't work then...

if you are using Zone Alarm, get rid of it, it's causing your problems.


I switched from Zone Alarm to the Tiny Firewall of whatever it's called, and it works fine now.

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