My modem sometimes hangs while on the Internet. If I restart my computer it seems to reset and runs fine.
When I try to access a URL I can see the green sending light go on, but nothing comes back and eventually I get a message that says can't find the address. Its the same in both NS (4.72) and IE (5.5). It also did this with earlier versions of browsers.
I have also used different modems. I am presently using an Aztech MSP5900-U but I also have had a US Robotics Sportster and it did the same thing.
It acts like a modem buffer (???) is getting loaded up.
Are there some special command strings that might alleviate problem?
