I use a US Robotics Sportster External 33.6 K modem. I have a couple of problems :
1) On dialing, the modem does not redial even if line is busy (i HAVE checked the appropriate box for redialing in connection settings) and when the line connects, it disconnects after two rings and starts to redial. If the connection tone is received before two rings then the modem gets and stays connected. It appears that its got the recognition mixed up, i.e. it recognises the successful ringing as busy and vice versa. What settings have I done wrong?
2) Which modem should I have used during installation. I have selected "USRobotics External 28800-33600". The automatic detection selects standard modem. Even that gets the same dialing problem.
