so i have gone XP at last. Downloaded the lagacy drivers for my old kit including the modem Rockwell KC5602 serial external v90 K56k fax/voice. by Pacific image and comms
Set up dial up, explorer and outlook express. When I attempt to go on line through IE6 or Explorer, the dial up panel invariably errors with differing messages message 1 could be 'cannot establish connection' or 2 'Cannot find remote computer' if the modem dialled. Some times the modem does not dial , and I get cannot find modem, or 'Modem is busy'
However if I dial out on the connection direct, ir invaribly does connect to the ISP and from there explorer or IE6 will load and perform. If I go to the ISP help line and they talk me through the settings it works fine for that session. But when the conputer is restarted next day say - it will have all gone bad again. Whats to do?
