Using standard W95 dialer, I try to connect to Internet through dial-back. My callup works, the connection is dropped from serverside, my modem is called back and the modem replies. W95 dialer however is trying to disconnect (giving a message box) and does not respond to the call. As far as I can see from statusleds the DCD is not dropped (and shouldn't be according to the modemsetup).

I think you can play with AT&C1 or 2-4 setting to resolve problem (store it in power-on profile, or write into modem settings in Control panel, or both). It may help if problem is as you explained.
Best regards.

With my modem the &C command only accepts values 0 and 1. Values 2-4 seems to block the modem (I guess it returns an error code to the software thus inhibiting further dialing). Value 5 and up seems to have no effect.

I wonder if the problem is in fact due to a 'break' signal from the remote host. I can't find a modem command to ignore receiving a break. And apparently the W95 dialer drops dead when receiving it.

Commented:
Install a standard modem driver for the modem.
Lemme know what happens.

Commented:
Oh yea, I mean from add new hardware.
1. Start wizzard.
2. it will ask to install, choose no|next, follow in that fashion until you get your list of modems and choose standard.

This was originally done. (I guess I chose the "standard 28800 modem").

OH. Experiment. Don't use the  win95 dialer. Use the DUN box instead and see what happenes.
