I am trying to connect to the internet using an instalation cd provided by the ISP but it keeps stalling when it tries to connect to the network.
The modem seems to be fine as both the ADSL and power lights are lit and I have checked device manager and all is fine with it there.
Troubleshooter says to check the filters and cables are fitted correctly which I have done and AdSL is activated on my line.
I have even used a differnt filter to check there is not a problem there.
When the program is testing for a network connection windows does say in the bottom corner that talktalk broadband is connected but then the installation program comes up saying that connection to the network failed. The diagnostics say something about sync detection and then failed next to it so it looks like thats where the problem lies but i don't know what it is or how to fix it. Could it be a difference in clock speeds between my comp and the server?
This isn't a new broadband account. It was previously set up on my laptop which i've now broke and am now trying to set my desk top instead.
I tried setting up using the internet connection wizard but no luck there either.
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.
