If the modem and line in are OK, change cables and clean Phone line jack connections with alcohol. Look for oxidation on pins or bent, damaged pins.

Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.


If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

I am using windows XP in my Toshiba laptop sattellie Series. I am unable to make any new connection to connect to Internet.


That is because the L300 does not support XP.
If you reinstall Vista, all will be well again.
XP is no longer supported even by Microsoft as it is over 10 years old and now obsolete.
Hope that helps.

Check the hardware using the device manager to see if there is an issue with the drivers. You can hold the windows key and press pause break and device manager should show up. Look for any ! ? or other marks on the list.

Dial up Modem


Dial up modems have 2 phone line connections side by side in the back of a desktop, one is for the wall, other is for your telephone. Laptops have just one phone line connector. Look closely at the little symbols by the connection holes. If you don't have one, Modems (internal or externally mounted), are on eBay, buy a 56K with drivers on disk for your operating system. A few modems can be installed using Windows default drivers (drivers are software operating programs that tell your computer how to regulate and operate a device).
