Hey There,
I am running windows 98 SE, using a Creative Modem Blaster V90. I am not terribly computer literate.

My modem has problems connecting to the net when I first start up my computer. It dials up and the connection 'chime' keeps repeating until I get a message saying that the server's not responding. The problem is not to do with my ISP.

I've tried uninstalling the modem and restarting windows, so that the computer automatically detects the modem and installs the proper drivers. This worked at first, but no longer does. I've messed around with the networking in control panel, and when I delete the information and then select 'microsoft networking client', that seems to remedy the problem, but when I shut my computer down and start up the next day, I encounter the same problem again!

I don't need my computer to be networked. If I get rid of networking altogether, will this help?

I can't turn off my computer, log on the next day without enduring the immense frustration of trying to figure out what will enable the modem to work.

Someone told me that it may be due to a corrupted TCP/IP setting. Maybe it's something to do with the modem drivers. I'm very confused and I don't know what to do.

Thanks,

Al

Hey guys,
Just figured out how to post a reply on this thing! Anyway, I wanted to tell you that the information I received regarding my problem proved really helpful. The Microsoft queries and the optimizing webpage helped me tinker and, I think, fix the problem I was experiencing. No hiccups today, but I'm going to see what happens over the next couple of days. Sometimes the computer deceives me by behaving for a little while after having been scolded, but then reverts to rebellion. We'll see! I'll let you know.

Thanks again,

Al
