Dial up (yes, dial up) problems

3146 Views 30 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  gravity
So I have dial up...
Now, since a few days my mom's rig (who is also connected with dial up) has encountered a problem :
Each time it connects to the net, after a while, when you try do disconnect it, it actually won't. It won't even let you open the connection's status page...
Anyone, please help !

Does it actually say your connected, and then quit out, or does the connection attempt and then timeout?
It actually gets connected, but, after a while, while the connection is still on and the network icon still flashes, you can't disconnect, and you can't open the status page...
Hm. That's odd - especially not being able to open the status page.

This might be a long shot, but have you done an extensive virus/malware search on that PC? I once knew a friend who had an older PC that was affected malware/viruses to the point where we couldn't open windows explorer or the task manager or even his network tab, like yourself, and such.

Then again, it could be a much simpler problem. Make sure your dialup cable is securly in the wall jack, and you want to look along the entire cable for any imperfections on it.

I'll search around on the internet for a bit. I'll let you know if a solution to your problem turns up.
Yes. A Virus is what my step dad and I had in mind at first. We actually found one, and deleted the file. But, there still is the problem... so maybe it is another virus...
And I doubt it is any imperfections, as my internet works fine ...
Hm. Well after a quick google dig, I can't seem to find your problem anywhere.

If youve found a virus, there's more then likely more. Download all the best virus/malware/adware/spyware searches and let them all do a complete search of your computer.

I suggest:

Avast! Virus protection
Ad-Aware SE

Run those. See what turns up.

Good luck.

If the problem persists, you can wait here for an answer that somebody else might have that im not seeing, OR you can backup your files, and reformat your PC.

Personally, I use AVG, and my mom's has Mcaffee on it. We scanned the PC with both, and nothing was found...
So, yea tomorrow I might just format it ...
Bump !
A lot...

Usually, with my dad using it, plus me, it ends up being around 100$ for the telephone bill, and 50$ for the ISP...
I don't have any other internet options here, although some companies are planning to make internet available in more places with the arrival of 3G phone networks, and I might get broadband Internet with that...

lol why don't you get dsl for $15-$20/month?
do you have a firewall because there are a few bots out there that can lock up your dialup connection...the only way out is to reboot. i actually had this problem a couple of years ago using aohell. picked up the bot on a website and ended up having to reinstall windows

Because unlimited dsl costs 200 $ here...
There are other options, but they're limited (1Gig is 30$ per month, 2 Gig is 60$...)
No, there's just the normal firewall from windows, nothing else...
Anyway, I didn't change any settings, it just went like that in a blink of an eye, and I can't find any way back now...
