    I am working on the XP Professional windows. It is a Packard Bell computer. Everytime I try to connect to the internet, the computer cuts off and restarts. The computer works fine till you try to connect. The modem is working. Is their something in the startup that needs to be checked or unchecked before it trys to connect. Please help

    Have you tried reinstalling the modem driver? Or getting a newer driver?

    Also try making a new connection.

    Hello Triple6, the driver is current. The modem works,but when it connects online it cuts off the computer and it restarts. Is their something in the windows setup and won't let the computer connect to the internet without cutting off.
