My ISP is having a problem and I cannot connect with winxp. It gives a error 718. This has been going on for a few days. Win Macintosh and LINUX it works fine. Also my friends aren't having problems with their routers with my isp. My ISP says it's because macintosh and routers have a large timeout capacity or they wait for servers to respond longer. However, with winxp it only waits for 20 seconds. Does Any one know how to make xp wait for more than 20 seconds before it decides that the connection is no good. Once I connect with macintosh the speed of the line is fine. I just need to get winxp to wait for say, 120 seconds instead of 20 seconds.
