Win 98 Reboots when I receive a call on the same line
Posted on 2000-05-03
I have a F1156IV/A2A Lucent WinModem and I'm using Windows 98, the first edition. My problem is if I'm connected to the net and somebody calls my line my entire system reboots without warning. It's very annoying as you might think. Now, I do subscribe to call waiting and call answer and call forward to voice mail and whatever. The way that works is if I'm talking on the phone I hear a funny little series of beeps and I can flash over to the over call and look at the caller ID and whatever. So I don't know maybe if that series of beeps is telling the modem to send my system a message to reboot. I know I could probably get around it by disabling call waiting, but that's kind of a waste because the purpose of call waiting/answer is to get a message if I'm on the line. So aside from disabling call waiting and answer (if that is the problem), what else can I do maybe in my dial up networking settings? Thanks for any help.
