Re: acer laptop dial up modem keeps droping conection

Who is your ISP?

If the thing works, I am not so sure your hardware is to blame, typically a hardware issue is at fault when it does NOT work, not when it 'sort of' works.

Intermittant issues are the exception to the rule, typically.

This could very well be the fault of your ISP.

Are you the only person using the line? Could someone be picking up the phone and dropping your connection?

If you post the type of Acer laptop you have and the type of modem this might help as well.

There is a freeware program called 'Everest Home Edition' that will help you determine your drivers and your hardware.

Hopefully this helps...

We are unable to have highspeed internet and have to have dial up but there is no modem on the laptop I have. How do I get a modem downloaded into my laptop to use the dial up at my home?

Hi Guest,
You cannot download a modem for dial-up internet as you do not have an rj11 phone jack on your laptop so you need something like this that is a dial up modem that plugs into your usb socket.

If it just keeps dialing it is probably dialing the wrong number. You would need to contact your ISP to get a good number and for help on correctly configuring the laptop to connect to their network.

I just bought a laptop and im trying to conect to the internet with a sb512 modem that is conected to my computer. is this possible or what do i need to do. Please help

you need to plug the ethernet cord from the calb emodem into your laptop unless you have a wireless router- once you have done this you will need to unplgu the power cord from the cable modem and plug it right back in.

Dial-up: Internet Connection

do your pc have a dial-up modem card?
What's the brand? Go to download the latest driver for the modem and try and see.

If not, right click on my computer icon, go to hardware tab, select "device manage", see does it detect any modem driver or not.

If after installing the driver still the same and can't be detected, most properly your modem is going to "heaven".....

Try to change another modem, see whether it can work or not.

Acer 56 kbps v.92 modem...i cant install modem

Hello there, sounds to me like a softwere problem. Try downloading the drivers again from the website of the make of the modem. Install them again - if you're getting the same message after, Download anti-virus FREE AVG you can find this at this link for windows: Install this run it on a test see what it says and you may find your problem. if not then you could do a deep clean and fully re-install windows xp - REMEMBER TO BACK-UP ANY FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING SO. in the meantime good luck Raverbaby keepin it hardcore!!!!! = (htid) hardcore till i die !
