Loss of Hi-Speed connection with Fax/Modem

By wplecko ·
I'm running Win XP Pro and have a Hi-speed, always on, internet connection with (Ethernet)cable modem. I also have dial up fax/modem(56K)installed to dial up to my company's email. Whenever, I connect with my fax/modem(56K)I would loose my Hi-speed connection.

Any idea why and how can I stop this?

You probably connect to your company's mail by using a VPN connection. Apart from what is mentioned through the first answer, a lot of VPNs are set up in a way that the clients aren't allowed access to the internet during the connection, for security reasons.

Why don't you use your Hispeed connection to connect to the company?
