Howdy They keep on coming, annoyances. Last week I took M$ security update patches and since I have had Remote modem hung up several times. Sometimes they keep on coming after another that I just get connected and 3 seconds later disconnected. Is M$ doing this purpously I only ask @$#& Where to find the patches on puter to uninstall, add/remove on control panel ? Well I´m not sure a patch is causing this but obviously it is. friendliest *Ari* 01-02-2003 01:12:44.94 - Dialing. 01-02-2003 01:12:44.94 - Send: ATDT######<cr> 01-02-2003 01:13:16.41 - Recv: <cr><lf>CONNECT 52000/PROTOCOL: LAPM/COMPRESSI 01-02-2003 01:13:16.41 - Interpreted response: Connect 01-02-2003 01:13:16.41 - Connection established at 52000bps. 01-02-2003 01:13:16.41 - Error-control on. 01-02-2003 01:13:16.41 - Data compression on. 01-02-2003 01:19:56.86 - Remote modem hung up. 01-02-2003 01:19:58.26 - Recv: <cr><lf>NO CARRIER<cr><lf> 01-02-2003 01:19:58.26 - Interpreted response: No Carrier 01-02-2003 01:19:58.27 - Hanging up the modem.
