When connected to the internet, I get strange "phone calls" which disconnect me from the internet. When I pick up the handset I get a high pitched whine. Also I'm finding that my computer is trying to dial out when I'm not connected.
BT says the calls are generated by my system, because they don't register with 1471.
I run an upto date virus checker and zone alarm pro. Upto date versions of Adaware and Spybot say all is OK.
Do I have a physical problem with my modem, or is it a software problem. This only started recently and is getting worse. I haven't loaded any programs which are likely to cause this.
I use Windows 98SE with IE 6.02, though I use Netscape 7.0 as my browser. The modem is a Conexant Soft56 Data Fax Speakerphone PCI modem.
I've tried conecting via a different isp with the same result. Thanks
