In the morning i use freeserve to connect to the internet. I had no problems. However when i try to connect after midnight and the morning of the next day i cannot. i use dialup and i can hear the modem dialling the number but afterwards i can connect to the internet but a error page comes up. I try to try other websites but i cannot. It still happens. I have XP home and norton internet security. Is it normal or are my settings incorrect? This is the first time i have experienced this problem.
Doubt you need a firewall at all with dialup because your dynamic address [or whatever the tech term is] is always changing so you are not a sitting duck for those gadgets which hackers use to find a victim.
i have tried using a new browser, doing what it tells me to do on the symantec support and even re-installing NIS but the problem is still there. Any reccomendations? I can try zonealarm which was suggested by fruit bat.
I have resetted my firewall but everything works like it only loads up the home page: tiscali.com. The rest is still the same. Has anyone had this problem after installing NIS 2003 and solved it and if so how. Awaiting replies.
