I have a Compaq Presario 7970 with the HSP modem that came installed in it. When we connect to AOL the first time all goes well but eventually we get disconnected and can't connect again without rebooting the computer. We have updated the modem driver, changed the modem settings to software control and no error correction, and added AT&F0W2 to the modem init string in the modem properties. Is there another setting that needs to be changed? Is the init string being ignored since the sign-on is AOL? What else can be done here to shore-up this connection?
