    When i want to disconect my dial up modem, it seems to take for ever to disconect. I am using window XP Home and just downloaded and installed the newest drivers for the modem. When i click to disconect, the computer in the tray or the desktop box will stay on. The system says disconected but my phone is still tied up

    Did you have this problem with the old driver? Was you having any problems that caused you to update the driver for your modem?

    If nothing was wrong, then go into the device manager, Right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware tab/Device manager button.... Find your modem, open it and choose to Roll Back the driver.

    That's most likely a function of your Telco. When you direct your modem to "disconnect" it almost immediately goes "on hook". If your Telco does not recognize that condition quickly either you have some special feature on your line or your Telco has a problem.

    (If your modem is internal listen for a click when you disconnect. If the modem is external... listen for the click AND watch the lights.)
