View Full Version : Internet connecting issues

01-11-2007, 07:12 AM
Recently, our ihug broadband has had issues connecting. It always shows 'Dialling 0,100' and sometimes stays there for a few seconds (it's usually replaced with Authenticating username and password immediately), disappears, then comes up with 'The remote computer is not responding'. We shut down every computer, turn the computer with the modem off at the power supply, then turn it back on, and it just might work. Is this an ihug issue, a Telecom issue or a computer issue? (All computers run Windows XP SP2)

You need to talk to Ihug's help desk - you pay for it, why not use it?

Best of luck!

It'll be their problem. I used to get the same message when I was on dialup.

Sometimes, it took 4-5 redials to connect.

What kind of modem is it ?? PCI ADSL modem?

USB ADSL modem, D-link.

Dad has rung them up, several times, and they always say 'not our problem. Restart the computer...' and whatnot. :(

Does it have ethernet on it?? If it does use ethernet.

Or try another USB cable.
