Dial up connection dialing 5 times to connect
Posted on 2002-07-21
I've had my computer for a couple of years now. Just recently it's been dialing several times to connect to the internet. Usually about 5 times. Sometimes it says the line is busy. This didn't used to happen. I call the ISP with my phone and don't get a busy signal when this happens. Originally I thought it might be the modem. I replaced the modem and it still does it. This isn't something it does consistently though. You might connect right off once and then take three or four tries the next time. I also put in a new line to run from the computer to the phone jack. My isp says that they don't show any problems that it's either noisy phone lines, my modem, or my machine. My question is what could be wrong with my machine for instance. I've replaced my modem is there something here on the machine I should check? Thanks!
