Good day all..

I have an internal US Robotics 28.8 Sportster Modem. Each time
I try to connect... I can hear the "handshaking" however,
it quickly gives me the error msg.." You have disconnected
from the computer you dialed. Double click to try the connection
again." I have adjusted the speed of the modem.. reinstalled
it..etc to no avail. Its running off com3, irq 4.. if that helps.

Any help would be appreciated...

Verify your password & call your ISP if the # appears to be correct also.
Sounds like an ISP problem though &/or
you may need to update your dialup connector also

Faq.txt:
">>>To determine whether the serial port I/O address and IRQ
settings are correctly defined:

1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel,
and then double-click System.

2. Click Device Manager, and then click Ports.

3. Select a specific port, and then click Properties.

4. Click Resources to display the current resource settings
for that port. To find the correct settings, consult
your modem documentation.

5. In the Resources dialog box, check the Conflicting
devices list to determine whether the modem is using
resources in conflict with other devices.

6. If the modem is in conflict with other devices, click
Change Settings, and then click a configuration that
does not have resource conflicts.

NOTE: Do not use a modem on COM3 if there is a serial
mouse or other device on COM1. Usually, COM1 and COM3
ports use the same IRQ and cannot be used simultaneously
on most computers. The same is true of the COM2 and COM4
ports. If possible, change the COM3 and COM4 port to an
IRQ setting that is not in conflict.

Also, some display adapters have an address conflict
with COM4 ports. To work around this conflict, use
another COM port or replace your graphics adapters.
