i have win xp pro on a sony pII 433mhz 6.4gb model pcv-l400. modem is a v.90 56k. The problem is whenever i dial my isp it connects with errors so i have to reconnect. after at least 6 tries its ok and i notice it will give problems if my connection is about 31.2kbs. if say i am connected at 44000kbs then the pages wont load and errors on the dial up. is it the driver problem? i cannot find an update for the driveranymore as its a pretty old model. its some lucent win modem. thanks

Modem

Unsure on the possibility, but I would try a test from a different computer with a different modem to the same ISP. See if you get a better to different outcome when attempting that same connection with different hardware. If you get the same effect, you will then know its your ISP which gives poor service. If you get better results then we can say its the hardware or drivers.

Drivers can make every difference in how a hardware device perfoms. I don't want to say your problem is driver related, but it can very well be the issue.

It is possible that you may have the lovsan virus aka Blaster.

Open task Manager ([ctrl][shift][esc]. Click on the processes tab, look for MSblast.exe, root32.exe, or penis32.exe. If it is running you are infected. You can goto www.f-secure.com for removal and patch instructions.

Hope this helps.
