A friend here in France has a Tiscali dial-up connection and it normally connects at 40-50kbps but, when he tries to access a web page or do a search on Google it gets as far as the opening page and then freezes. Both the sending and receiving lights fade out or flash intermittently and he cannot move from there. The modem is an external Intel V92 and he has XP Home installed. Any help greatly appreciated.
Hi Stuartli, thanks for your response. Will check settings and also see if any web sites are blocked with a firewall. What is Proxomitron and where do I get it please. I will let you know if any of your suggestions works.
