Network Time-Out

By telle ·
I have 2 computers networked to a third that is used for the modem connection. Using Win 98 SE and Linksys.When you connect to internet through the one computer it dials up and goes to the home page.Great ! The other computer,when dialing on to internet "times out" and you have to hit reload to bring up the home page.It does make the connection to the net but not fast enough. Any Ideas ?

Network Time-Out

by LiQuiDKeWL In reply to Network Time-Out

I have had similar problems with modem sharing devices. The only thing I can get from that, is that the time it takes for the modem to dial and connect is longer than the timeout value for IE. I have never found a setting that fixes it. Only a reload will basically work.

Is your ISP a dial-up connection or is a cable/DSL? Is the Linksys a router or a hub?
