You've been disconnected

I have a P6 200, USR Sportster 33600 , win95 osr2. Whenever I try to connect to my ISP I get the message "you have been disconnected from the computer you
have dialed, double-click etc" As soon as I retry, I get a good connection.
*This happens every time!*
No problem if I use my son's PC - P5 120, same win95 OSR2, same  ISP account, same phone line, USR 33.6 Sportster Voice
What's happening?
What am I doing wrong?

I assume you have talked to your ISP about this, Yes?

You should certainly contact your ISP and let them know this is happening.  There are several factors that might be causing this, so a specific answer is not in store here without actually checking into your connection logs.  

On the ISP end, it could be a problem with the modem that you are connecting to - although that would be unlikely where this happens every time, but doesn't happen with another modem of the same speed.  

Some things you can check for are the connections of your phone lines into your computer, check the USR website for support and help files for your modem type, and see if your ISP can recommend init settings for your modem that will work best with their server.

Are you using a script (using DUN Scripting tool from MSPLUS)?

Go into the control panel, dialup networking and delete your connection to your ISP.  Shut down your system, and recreate the connection.  I have had this happen when the connection dows not get created correctly.  Why it works on the second attempt?  I don't know.  This is what I have found to be a solution by trial and error.

Can't have anything to do with ISP - my son's PC is connected to exactly the same phone line and when I use the same login on his machine there are no problems.
Further to alona: I'm not using Plus
Further to billogle: I'll try to recreate and will report

When you are on your first try (no connection), power down your system, and then power it on and retry for connection to ISP (one time)... Which is the result ?

I don't think you read 'billogle's" reply, he proposed:

Also, I have tried one way of getting rid of this problem by finding out another number for the ISP, usually ISP's have multiple phone numbers, and well, if you get a second one, it just might work.  It happens to me all the time....

MY comment had nothing to do with your ISP only the connection from your machine to your ISP.  What happened when you recreacted the connection?

Re billogle: this seems to have solved the problem! I've only had one or two "you've been disconnected..." messages instead of just about every time since I recreated according to your suggestion. Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestion - I really thought the problem had been solved - but not so!
When I boot up my PC from cold, I can log on the first time. However: if I log out, do some other work and try to connect again, I always get "the message" and have to dial in again!
I suspect that I have a hardware problem - maybe my modem doesn't reset properly.
I'll try re-installing the modem, and if that doesn't work, I'll try another modem.
I'll let you know!

lemmy,
  One mor time. Have you ever talked to your ISP about you problem. It could be 1 teeny-weeny wrong number set somewhere that could give you fits forever.

It appears the the recreate of the connection solved the initial problem, now we have to work on the new one.
