dial-up disconnect

by D. Cruikshank / August 14, 2006 10:33 AM PDT

Every time a phone call comes in, it kicks me off the Internet. I'm running a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a Conexant D110 MDC V.9x modem. Help!

how ever there is a software that can prevent this from happening... have you heard of the "Internet Call Waiting "? its a software that allows you to screen your incomming call while you online, this software is avaible thru callwave and i think peoplepc ISP has this feature try it out might lessen your frustration about this issue

I don't use any Telephone Company add ons like Call Waiting or Caller ID..
But sometimes use a DATA-Voice Guard..from RadioSHACK..which works very well..I have about 4-of them but seldom use them when I need my Answering Machine..they will allow only ONE Device to operate at a time on a single telephone connection..e.g./if you are useing the PC Modem and pick up a phone/you won't hear the MODEM-noise..the circuit is cut at the DATA-Voice Guard..so is every device in the house line..but it sometimes hangs up slowly so you might have a confusion about the phone being OUT..I only use them once in a while..but their good..check RadioSHACK/they have two types.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
