dial-up disconnect

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!

yep! it does disconnects

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

Dial Up../

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 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.
