"Unable to establish connection"???

  southpaw 21:03 28 Jan 2006


I'm having problems connecting to the internet.

I use Zoom Service provider and when I try to connect, it firstly dials like normal then comes up with "Failed to connect to remote computer, Unable to establish connection"???

The modem is not at fault as I've tried a different modem.

I also thought maybe it was zoom so installed Tesco Service Provider but when trying to connect it too gets "Failed to get internet access, The Port was disconnected by remote computer"

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the suggestion but can anyone figure out the "unable to conect" problem?

I guess that no matter what ISP I use I'm gonna get the same problem so the problem is somewhere here!

(Oh I'm using another laptop to write this.)

I would suggest that you run the modem diagnostic it may simply need reinstalling. Failing that it could be a nasty downloaded from the net blocking access so that you cannot uninstall it. Do you have up to date virus checking and spyware removers?

what do you mean by modem diagnostics?

I've removed it and re-added it if thats what you mean?

Have run an AVG virus scan all clear.
Ad Aware all clear
Spybot Search and Destroy all clear.
