    D-Link DU-560M works flawlessly on Dim Dell 500 W2k into ISP.
    Same modem, same ISP phone no's on Dim Dell 8300 XP SP1 starts
    handshaking then 4-11seconds in, gets continuous tone for 20secs
    before redialling. This happens 95% attempts. 1 in 20 attempts
    complete handshaking, connection then appears stable.

    The easiest way is to call your ISP and have them help you troubleshoot the
    Sometimes it is as easy as a telephone number change for the dial up.
    Also go to accessories | dial up networking | right click the connection and
    take a look at
    "keep alive". In XP it is located in network connections.
    Bottom line the ISP should be ale to help you troubleshoot it.

    Just trying to help! I was in error anyway, keep alive are for keeping the
    connection live if you get a lot of disconnects. You are having problems
    just connecting.
    My recommendation to call the ISP still stands.

    And causing mass confusion of the poor schmucks you reply to.
    You do a lot of that. You don't know anything at all about computers, do
    you? You just make up any old crap as you go along. And if you feel like
    denying that, just take a good, hard look at your last two or three posts
    where you were forced to backtrack by others. You are a worthless dipshit
    and your advice is rubbish. "Just trying to help"? PFFFFT! You should
    consider suiciding. That would help.
