dial up internet connection freeze

By RG11 ·
I have a celeron 400, 256 ram with win98 and a 56k dial up connection through my phone line. I will be on the internet and in the bottom right corner my conection will show that I am connected represented by the two green blinking monitor symbols near the clock. Then after I am on for a bit the green goes out, I am still connected but nothing happens. Then after maybe 10 seconds to sometimes 3 minutes the green light will reappear and then my internet activity starts again. Is this my isp, modem,?????

Wow. Not a lot of input to narrow it down but have you tried dialing a different ISP phone# or a different phoneline in your home/office. If you have the modem driver trie deleting it and reinstalling.

Sounds like a junko ISP.
A lot of ISP's have put monitoring dial -up connections on the back burner. There just isn't any monety in dial-up service anymore. Try a different ISP, there used to be a bunch of free ones that display a banner in exchange for a connection but I don't know if they still exist. Internet search will find them. "Free Web" or "Free Access". If you still have a problem, you know it is not connection related (at least on their end) if it works better, find a new ISP or get a managed service.

Possibly an update to Dialup Networking from Microsoft Downloads will help fix the glitch you are having. Search for "Windows Dialup Networking" or "DUN" any version beyond 1.1 is what you are looking for I believe.

If it happens after approx. 20 minutes each time you have the 20 minute timeout checked in the dial up settings and it's just not showing the disconnect. Open a browser, click tools, Inet Options, connections tab, settings button, advanced button, uncheck Disconnect if idle for 20 minutes box, apply, OK---out.

Good Luck.
