What operating system are you using?  Windows 95, or MAC-OS or what?

If Win95/98 then make sure all settings are correct for your modem.  Go to control panel and double-click on modems.  You can see various settings, make sure they are correct.  (On Win98 there's a diagnostics tab you can use to test settings...it might be there on Win95 but I can't remember for sure.)

Also, you can double-click on My Computer icon and check the Dial-Up Networking settings.  If there's more than one icon in there then you should make sure your network software (e.g. - Internet Explorer) is using the correct one.  In fact, you can connect by double-clicking one of the icons in there - then, after establishing connection, launch your browser or email application...it should use the connection you've already made.

Best of luck to you!
Remove your modem, then reinstall and use "Standard 336000" driver.
