PC Tel HSP56 Micromodem

I have a PC Tel HSP56 Micromodem that came with my Amptron Motherboard.  My problem is that I constantly lose my connection with AOL.  Sometimes it will work ok for awhile, and then I start losing my connection, and it finally gets to where I can not even log on to AOL.
I installed my old 33.6 modem, and it works fine.

I assume this is an on board modem? If so, disable it and get another modem - those onboard pctels are even less reliable than a regular pctel modem.

When you go into the modems properties - is the connect only at this speed box checked?? - this will cause the symptoms you described - If it is checked - uncheck it, and try it out.

A clue to how good these modem are may be found in the additional cost of the added onboard modem, less then $5, this is a case of you get what you pay for.

the box is not checked.  I have tried backing off the connect speed to a max of 56k, but the problem still exists.

Download the latest driver for your modem. I don't use AOL, so I don't know if it will help in your case, but with my computer the new driver helped. And the new Win 2000 driver has NEVER dropped the connection on me :-)
