It's an HP running XP home edition. In the last few days, the modem has started dropping carrier for no reason that I can figure out, but may be related to traffic (i.e. it only drops when I'm downloading something like a web page or email, not when I'm just sitting there reading a page or mail). I've tried removing the drivers & letting the wizard reinstall them, but to no avail. Of course it could be hardware, but since the PC is only about 6 months old, is there anything in the configuration or registry that I should look for?
Thanks one & all,
