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.
