I recently removed some bugs from a Sony laptop PCG-5G2L.
Here I always use my wireless router to connect to the Internet and everything works fine.
Customer is using dial up as high speed is not yet available where they live. The modem is an HD Audio Soft v.92.
Knowing that, I downloaded and installed SP 2 and all updates to all other software.
The problem they are having is that the modem dials, connects but sometimes IE will not browse.
Page cannot be displayed error, or something to that extent. Intermittent issue too. Sometimes it is fine.
We tried it here and it does the same thing with dial up but wireless or cabled works fine.
Firefox has the same issue
The resarch I have done indicates that Vista hates dial up and that it was not designed for it.
Granted, they do live out in the country and this is a small town. So the phone lines are brobably not the best quality in either location.
Has anyone else experienced dial up issues with Vista?
There's a lot of people complaining about this on the net with no good resolution.
In the beginning there was the command line.
