i have aproblem with packet loss on a dial up modem in the united kingdom. i dont understand why i am getting this problem and would like any help at all :).

my os is windows 98 - my model of modem is diamond 56k (with current drivers)
i dont always get this problem but i believe its because of a secondary tcp connection as when i do netstat in dos - it shows these 2 connection - 1 is my aol provider address and the other is an address which i cant reach hence the packet loss the address is as follows 205.188.45.105:5190 i have deleted all my c drive to c if it would correct it but i still have the problem so i was thinking a virus - but i am virus free so i now believe it is a redirect from aol itself - my question is this ..

how can i stop this connection redirect and or stop the connection itself i only need 1 tcp connection so i would like to stop the other connection any ides on how to stop aol opening the second route tcp addy the tcp connections are as follows
slider:1731 berp-cl12.dial.aol.com:13784 established(my aol connection) and slider:1732 205.188.45.105:5190 established i took this info from netstat in dos the slider1732 i would like to stop any 1 know how please help

The 205.188.45.105 is an AOL address also. Here is the reverse IP lookup: http://www.amnesi.com/hostinfo/ipinfo.jhtml?ip1=205&ip2=188&ip3=45&ip4=105&Search=Lookup+Name&wholeIp=205.188.45.105

I do not know why AOL requires this additional connection or even if it can be blocked.

Virus ?

Ok, I cant say I follow this post 100% but somtimes 50-75% is ok :). Anyway if you are on a computer connected to a network, it would have a network address, but since you are finding a directly connect port it could be a trojan or worm, a type of sleeper program that has created a dial-in-out for its creator that can reverse accsess your computer when you are online. It can and does happen but it could simply be a computer glitch. Run the "ipconfig" command off of your command line, see if the addresses for the connections are concurrent if they are not you could have a piggieback connection running on your computer. You could also attempt to ping the IP address or run a WHOis, and last but not least get a firewall in place and see if anything is trying to get out of your computer that you are now aware of.
