Internet disconnection problems

  KateM 00:54 13 Feb 2006

I use a dial up internet connection and for about 10 months have been getting a box on the screen reading IGNORE CALL You have just ignored an incoming call press OK button. Whether you close window or press Ok the internet connection is always disconnected and there are no incoming calls being ignored. This has happened on both Tiscali and Wanadoo so I don't think it is the ISP. It is always worst when first connected and for example tonight has disconnected over 20 times so far since connecting 15 minutes ago. Can anyone help as this is driving us crazy.

Any V92 modem is likely to cause this problem.

Do you have 'Call Waiting' on your phone line? Try cancelling it temporarily (#43#).

Make calls to your number with it off, then with it on (*43#), whilst online.
