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
Open Internet Explorer, go to TOOLS drop down menu, pick INTERNET OPTIONS, click on the CONNECTIONS tab, and click the radio button NEVER DIAL A CONNECTION. Then close IE and restart it. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.
Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.
if you have with your unit please againg connect to the internet if same problem occur...
please follow these step.,
check your internet connection, your cable wire if still working...crimp again the wires,if still not working. check if you have and intenet service provider of service connectivity ok. call your ISP. next check if modem is working. observe it there is a LED correspond to the words which ios the connectivity. lastly your IP configuration check it if you have aasigned a Ip addrss manualy or automaticaly.
Why not try to create in the INTERNET OPTIONS under Control Panel. Click connection then hit ADD then set the settings. Try to set also its settings on LAN SETTINGS. Then whenever you try to connect to dial internet use the connection you created in internet options.
Sometimes you can get to Dial up connection one from the regular creation and one from the Internet options. If this could be the case.
If you still not able to connect to internet even with the right settings. Chances are, you have virus in your system. Could be Trojan vundo.
Open up Internet Options (from the Tools menu in IE or right-clicking the desktop icon and selecting Properties, or through the Control Panel). On the Connections tab, select 'Never dial a connection.' When you want to connect to your ISP you will be required to manually start the dial-up connection.
Go to start>control panel>classic view>double click Network and
Internet connections>click network connections>right click your
connection>select properties>under General tab make sure that the
device listed is your correct modem-click configure-make sure the
Enable modem compression box is "unchecked"-click ok to save
changes-click ok to exit.
Make sure you have the latest drivers available for your network adapter, consult the MS Vista Network troubleshooter available here
You may wish to use your Device Manager to review your hardware and address any problems that appear there.
Monitor processes use using task manager or process explorer to see if your ram is being taxed unduly by the running processes. (I mention this because Norton is known to be a bit heavy handed in its use of system memory, you could try an alternative AV like Avira, Kaspersky, Eset NOD32 and see how it affects connections).
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need
further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
