hi Boy Zone,i assume that u only have one bt line coming into the house,if so that is the reason why your net gets cut off.You can only run one thing at a time on one line.NTL got round this by instaling two lines into the house but i woould have thought that if u r on the net & someone calls u by phone they would not get through until u disconnect from the net.If this is happening contact your isp to see why the net disconnects upon revieving calls.
huh? boy zone, i found it funny as you said you were using a dial up modem and people seem to think you dont have dial up. Or am i mistaken that a dial up modem can be used for something else? if that is the case i am sorry. :P
Yes I do have a dial up system using a 56Kmodem,i.e one line in. I do not have call waiting. Yes if I am on the net via my modem, and someone calls my tele number I get cut off the net. Don't know why. D
BT give you 1571 service even though you do not ask for it. Ring them up and tell them to take it off your phone line if you have it. It is what they call a free answerphone service but it costs the caller to leave a message and it costs you to recieve it. I am on dial up and rang them to get rid of it because it afffects your connection.
