First Do you have any static on the phone line. If so call phone company to do a test for line noise.
How long is the phone cord? If longer than 6ft this can cause problems. Remove any splitters or surge protectors from the line.
Lowereing the port speed down to 57600 is a good idea. You may also try lowering your fifo buffers.
You can als try the init string of
After entering this in if you get any kind of hardware failure or any wierd error take the init string out.
Hope this helps.

Go to the modem's web site (if it's a stand alone modem) and download the latest firmware. Firmware is NOT drivers it's like updating the bios on a computer.
If it's a name brand computer (dell, gateway, packard bell), go to their website and see if they offer any updates.
Try three commas ,,, after the phone number this will bypass the 56k and sometimes offers a better connection.
If all else fails try number one again. Look in device manager and see what type of modem you have or call the puter manufacturer and ask them. Get the latest firmware from the modem's site and install it.
Also are you running Win98? If so, dun and the tcp/ip stack has a bad habit of fubaring itself. If you have more questions or problems, just post them. Working at an ISP for two years had it's advantages.
