Annoying Work Offline Box

By BennyHill ·
While switching between web sites...I frequently get a box that pops up titled: Work Off-Line. No connection to the internet is currently available... and gives me 2 buttons to either to "Work Offline" or "Try Again" About 2/3 of the time it re-connects without a problem. The other 1/3 everything seems to slow down and often requires a re-boot for everything to run smoothly. Is this an XP problem? Any suggestions?

sounds like you are on upgraded box with winmodem and dial up connection are are getting dropped due to incompatibility with xp and certain winmodems...but 'insufficient data'
what service pack on xp
are you using dial up or broadband?
if dial up what modem
see if somebody has external modem you can try.
do you have call waiting which may be disconnecting you
did this ever work right
are you using firewall, xp or other
