View Full Version : Modem settings

Hi, I think there is some commands I can put in the modem settings to stop it locking up after 10 trys at connecting to my ISP. After 10 I have to reboot the computer. Does anyone know what the settings are?

Thats an odd problem.

Anyway the setting you want to change is under Internet Options control panel, Connections tab, settings button, advanced button.

There is also another one, under dialup networking, Connection menu, settings.

Goto Start\Settings\Control Panel\Internet\Connection\Settings and ajust accordingly.
Though if you can't get connected after 10 tries and your computer is setup OK I would seriously concider changing ISPs.

Thanks for those replys, but I have that 'Try to connect' setting set to 99. I think its a modem thing and you put something in the 'extra settings' in the modem setup. My ISP is ZFree
