I have a SupraExpress 56i Pro V CC installed on my machine which is running WinME.  The modem connects to my ISP and the password is verefied but webpages don't load they just timeout.  Also I can't connect to my FTP and ICQ doesn't work either.

You help would be very much appreciated.

Regards,

Nicholas

Another piece of information that is quite interesting is that MSN messanger connects to the server.

But I have still not found any other programs that will!

Once connected, open a command-line window,
and try 'PING 216.32.74.55'.
Try 'PING www.yahoo.com',
and tell us what is reported.

When I entered the IP address into IE 5.5 the page loaded up but the images took ages to appear.  My modem was connected at 48000bps though.

you need to call your ISP's tech support and ask them to walk you through setting up your computer to get online.  It sounds like you're not able to reach their DNS (Domain Name Service) servers.  These are servers whose addresses we cannot tell you, as each ISP's DNS addresses are different.

Temporarily, try this to see if that is indeed the problem (note: I've not used windowsME, so this walkthru may be off by a bit):

DO THESE WHILE OFFLINE:
1.  Open the Windows Me Networking control panel by clicking the  Start button. Select Settings, then select Dial-up Networking.

2.  Right-click on the dial-up networking icon for your ISP and select Properties

3.  Click the Networking Tab

4.  Be sure TCP/IP is selected, but netBEUI and IPX/SPX are not.

5.  Click TCP/IP Settings

6.   Here you want to choose the options Obtain an IP address automatically and Use the following DNS server addresses. Fill in 216.106.1.2 as the Preferred DNS server and 216.106.1.3 as the Alternate DNS Server.  (these are some DNS servers I know of)

Now connect to the Internet.  If your connection works now, please call your ISP and ask them for their DNS Server addresses.  Take these addresses and place them where you put 216.106.1.2 and 216.106.1.3 in step 6 above.

Hi All,

Sounds to me like an issue with Dial Up Networking.  

Un/Reinstall this by using add remove programs in the control panel, select windows setup tab and double-click communications.  Remove the tick form Dial Up Networking. Click ok & ok again.  Simply go back in here and recheck this box again and ok & ok it again.. You will need to restart after this.

If you still have this issue extract a file from you cab files called ?WSOCK32.dll? this goes into the C:\windows\system again reboot?  You can use System File Checker to do this.
Simply click Start?Run and type ?SFC? then enter.

This usually fixes this problem.  This fix is for 95/98. Not sure what OS you?re using.

Hope this helps?.
