    Compaq Presario 6000
    Windows XP
    Using Dialup connection with factory modem

    Connection drops out after 1 or 2 minutes, no warning or error messages..
    Have to redial and reconnect every 2 minutes typical.
    (even though connection drops I have to tell computer to disconnect before I
    can reconnect)
    Sometimes stays connected for 1/2 hour or more.

    Another computer works on this phone line.
    Modem test says OK.

    ISP says connection ok (same on 4 numbers)
    any thoughts?
    thank you

    Only a couple of options:

    1) Try downloading an updated modem driver from HP (they bought
    compaq)

    www.hp.com


    2) Replace the modem.
