One XP Profile Disconnects...

by broostaroo / September 10, 2005 8:27 AM PDT


Im using my parents PC for the time being and have my own profile set up on it. The problem is when I use the internet from this account the connection will fail every 10/15 mins or so and I need to reset the modem. This problem doesn't effect any of the other accounts.

Anyone else had this problem or know of a solution?

I"m unsure of what you mean by resetting the modem. Try checking the modem settings using control panel. Sounds like a time out or disconnect if idle setting

Usual cure. Create new account, move to new account.
