Tiny PC running windows XP Home. Spec is awful, but it is for a friend of mine...spare me the remarks...lol!
Now due to some serious software errors we have reformatted the PC etc. XP is now all clean, all is reinstalled. The modem drivers is installed etc by the way it is a cheap AMR Modem.
We finally get online after a hoo ha, then we stay online for 30 seconds then it just disconnects.. This happens all the time. I have tried different drivers etc to no avall.
I tried a USB Modem, but still no joy. So fed up of working it our over there I bought it home and put a new PCI Dynamode Modem. The modem Diagnostics reports all is fine, the modem dials the number, but it will not connect error 678.
We are in different areas so I setup the dialing codes etc. This is driving me mad this project, regret offering to help!
Also would it connect here at my home if we are on Broadband? Just a thought?
Try this: set up a new dial up networking account (My Computer, Dial Up Networking, Add new connection) and type in the phone number as 0845 609 1370. Enter the password as anything you like and the username likewise.
If it's the BT NTL Dial-up try this number all in one box on Dial-Up code 147008089909877 it may not connect first time as you are supposed to use the NTL dia-Up software but it's also a waste of time just use the number if he as an account but it will not work from your house I do not think as it goes through is line connection
Diodorus Siculus, true sorry i misread that. I will try that aswell, will i not have to sign up for a new service then? Or is this just another server number? Also, to be 100% sure the telephone line does go in the Line port doesn't it, and not the telephone?
