Internet connection times out

  Flat4 13:30 31 Mar 2004

Hi there anyone I hope you can help?
If I log onto the internet and don't do any thing I stay connected if I start using goggle or any thing else for that matter it times out after about two minutes.This is my Dads machine which is running 350mhz on 98se with 56k dialup.I recently loaded on software for a camera which now appears in the modem boxes under control panel should I remove this item?
Any help would be useful
I've looked at other threads and tried a few things but nothing seems to be working

First thing would be to look in Device Manager at the camera and modem, see if there are any conflicts.

Then see if either of them is ticked for 'Enable the computer to shut down this device to save power'.

If nothing obvious, and you have the camera software, by all means uninstal it in Device Manager. This is best done in Safe Mode. See if that cures the problem.
