WinME Modem connection

By pjm ·
Why does the dialup modem connection on WinME frequently establish correctly but not have the ability to receive info? Watching the byte counts, requests go out but, after the initial connection is established, nothing comes back in. BTW, pinging out does not work, either. Thanks...

try check the connection configuration in the dial up properties. unCheck the log in to network.
by the way is it PPP or else?
And do you connect it to ISP?

*has it ever worked? If so have you tried system restore or scanreg /restore
*do you have any type of software that would prevent incoming information, such as a firewall?

I don't know if this will answer your question but here is what has happen to me with Windows ME.
I could connect to my ISP provider (via modem) but i couldn't get any web pages. But i could log on to MSN messenger. So to fix it i tried removing all of the network settings in Network (right click network neighborhood and choose properties) and then reinstalling them and then restarting the pc. But although this could be a fix sometime it didn't work this time. So i have an upgrade disk of Windows ME and i just ran setup up again and reinstalled ME and it put everything back in order. Then i was surfing again. Don't forget i used an upgrade disk to do this so it didn't effect my settings but rebuilt everything. I wouldn't really want to try this with a full install disk unless you want to really reset everything. So please be carefull.
Hope this gives you and idea as to what could be the problem.
