Sounds as if you're not making a complete connection. Have you added any additional networking software/hardware? Are you getting a login? If not, you might want to check your IP settings. Not knowing what ISP you're using is going to make that a bit tough, but I'm guessing (sorry, would like to be more sure of this, but...) that you are not authenticating to the servers. If you have the IP address to your ISP check to make sure that you have the correct settings for the DNS.

You also might want to check the driver for your modem. If the driver is incorrect you might experience this kind of issue.

This might also be a problem with your ISP (i.e. not your configuration but with their service.) Have you tried to contact their Technical Support to make sure that it isn't their issue?

Just some thoughts. Good luck.

Regards,
Allan

Just occured to me... If you've replaced modems and have installed the drivers correctly, let's look at the phone cable that is attached to your modem and jack. Replace it and see if that helps. Also, you might try to connect from another phone jack to see if it isn't a jack problem.

I checked to make sure, and I am logged on,, (KIH ie.. Kentucky Internet Highway) I've contacted them too. I've replaced the phone line to the wall connection. Note this,, I took the exact same modem,put it into another machine, same lines and logged on to the ISP no problems. I suspect WindowsMe is corrupted but I need other choises before I format the drive the Ower is highly against it. This computer was the main one In a internet sharing home network, I've tried everything I can think of.... Keep Suggesting... THANKS

Here in our internet cafe, we try WinME as a Server for Internet means to say it is the one who connects to our ISP the it will share the internet connectivity..The problems same as to you, and the Connection speed is not reliable, or not stable, wecall our ISP, they said there is no problem. The things that i do is i change my OS. From WinME to Win98-SE, and know i get a reliable speed of 45,333 and i think it good....No more problem...

On this note... I tried connecting to another ISP(KYOL). The problem is still the same. I personally would like to format the thing but This won't win any points with the owner... THANKS,,,,

Do you have an ethernet card installed on your machine?
if so you might like to try this:
Check your network settings...Control Panel=>Network
Under: The following components are installed,
locate the TCP/IP protocol bound to the ethernet adapter.
Select it and click on the Properties button.
On the IP address tab select radio button to Specify an IP Address and enter in a reserved address like 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 the click OK all the way out and restart yourmachine.
This solution has worked for all ME users I have encountered with this problem (as long as they have had an ethernet card installed).
Cheers,
j
