Dial up box connection prob!

  gazmix 16:30 17 Nov 2006

I'm on Orange anytime, i don't want broadband, as this isn't my permanent residence.

If i'm on an internet site, e.g Google or whatever & then i just disconnect without logging off, leaving the Web page up & then later bring up my dial up box & connect, it gets the engaged tone & says line busy, when it isn't!
I have to either close the browser or log off & re login for me to get reconnected. This has recently started happening outa the blue!
I have run AVG, Spybot & Adaware just in case.

Also, i had what Orange technical support said was a 'Rogue username' where my username changed to something else & i had to reset my connectin, has anyone experienced this?

Have you checked, from IE's Tools>Internet Options>Connections that you have enabled "Always Dial My Default Connection"?

You may have Never Dial A Connection enabled.

I just checked & it was on 'dial whenever a connection isn't present' so i did as you said.

Weird that, as when i signed up i recall it was on 'always dial default'.

This 'Rogue username' that tech support said, she implied that it may have been hijacked or something, so much for them!!

This may be my shortest thread ever! hehe
