    Problems:
    After running the modem for maybe an hour or so, data transfer stops. I can no longer upload or download. I also cannot ping. However, the line that I connect through is still busy, and windows XP still reports the modem as being connected.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know why I didn't see this post before I posted my problem (see "winsock problem?" by me, gracie34). Just curious, did you get your straightened out? I have the exact same modem with the exact same problem.

    Yeah, I did get it figured out. I bought a hardware firewall - and hooked the modem up to it. Windows was the problem. Go figure, eh?
