I just got a new system that has a hsp56 micromodem and it is causing me to lose my connection to AOL. The boxed in modem properties for connection speed is not checked, so that is ok. I have heard that AOL 5.0 causes problems with digital modems. Is this one a digital modem and if not, what do I do?

If the system is under warranty, pursue the maker of the computer or the local reseller where you bought the computer.  I have had similar problems with different computers, and it has turned out to be problematic modems.  When replaced the problems ceased.

Oh, one other thing that it could be.  Do you have call waiting by chance?

>  Is this one a digital modem?

Your 'HSP' ("host signal processing") modem makes the CPU provide much of the processing which a 'DSP' ("digital signal processing") modem does entirely by itself.

Some modems connect to "digital" telephone-lines (like those found in a modern office), while most modems connect to "analogue" telephone-lines (older offices, or your home).

Well, so far you got lots of general comments, and no help.
try the following strings :
at&fs7=255s10=100+ms=v34
or
at&fn0s7=255s10=100s37=12

those strings suppose to slow down your modem, thus making the connection more stable.
if you dont know where to put the init strings, check this page :
http://www.modemhelp.org/initwhere.html

oh, another thing, if that does not work, try playing with the country selection at the control panel->hsp modem.
another think that may do some good, is to switch the dial type to pulse dialing at control panel->modems->dialing properties.

hope it helps.

Please be more specific.
Can you connect?
How long are you connected before the connection gets "lost" ?
What are you doing when the disconnect occurs? (Uploading? Downloading?)

make sure you have a fresh restart, then check your resources. You want them to be at or right around 90% free.
If it is not, then end task to some programs until it gets close.  then try your connection again.

A real good string for that and AOL is
AT&F\A0%N0^M

The \A0  changes the packet size that is sent
the %N0 changes the processor load that the modem is giving.

Hope that helps out.

Thanks all so much, it is somewhat better since I dropped AOL 5.0 and went back to 4.0
God bless you all for all your advice.
