    I'm on dialup 24/7 Internet, and starting to get the 718 error message
    (the connection timed out waiting for a valid response from the remote
    computer) from my ISP, this has been happening constantly for the past
    three days, so I can't login, I'm not using a pay as you go service to
    write this post.

    I would ask my ISP support, but I already emailed them and I received
    an auto-reply back saying that their usual response time is a week,
    also I don't fancy paying them 60pence/min on the phone for most
    likely their fault.

    I've been told that there might be something I can do at my end to
    prevent this error, does anyone have any idea if that is true and if
    so what they are/do?

    Thanks for any help!
