Okay, let's begin:
It takes a long time for me to connect to the internet (that's on good days when my modem feels like working.) Even then, it will only connect at 28 baud or lower. I've been all through the win 98 modem troubleshooters... nothing works.
Most of the time, when I try to dial out, there is static in the line. It connects, I hear the connection noises and then I hear the phone lady say, "please hang up and dial your call again." Plus, there is no static when I pick up the phone.
The times when I get a connection, there is no static, but still takes an eternity to sign on.
I've checked everything, more than triple. And, still, I can't find a solution. The modem is a HSP Audiomodem Riser. Could there be something wrong with it?
Thanks in advance.
