Email dial-up problem in India

Q: Email dial-up problem in India

I would really like to find some way to automate my email access in order to get around the connection problems I have.

I work for a non-profit foundation and am currently based in rural India. The location where I am is only 50 miles from Bombay. Although Bombay is a huge city with sophisticated facilities, in my area the phone lines are awful. Electronic exchanges have constant problems, overhead lines get pulled down or felled by falling trees and underground cables are regularly dug up. Things get fixed according to who paid off the officials involved. Often the few working lines are overloaded and constantly busy. I attempt to access a major ISP (VSNL) in Bombay and thereby to connect to my company’s email server in New York to access email. It should be straightforward enough, but the lines cause several problems.

I have to run a Dial-Up Networking Script (.scp file) upon connecting to the ISP. Currently I use Outlook Express 5.0 (though I could switch to Outlook 2000 if there is any advantage). Because of the script (I think) when I click ‘Send & Receive’, the dialog box requires me manually to check ‘Save Password’ and ‘Send Automatically’ before proceeding. If the lines are busy I cannot set it to automatically retry later by checking for new messages at a preset interval because of the dialog box.

Another problem is that sometimes a connection is made to the ISP or to my company server but the quality of the line or something causes errors and Outlook Express presents an Error Message which then has to be manually cleared before proceeding.

Ideally I would like to set it to try 25 times, wait an hour and try again without manual intervention. Is this too much to hope for???

Preferred Solution: Email dial-up problem in India

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Our office uses a small LAN. There is a Windows NT (version 4.0, Build 1381: SP 6) file server in a backoffice with MS Backoffice SmallBusiness Server 4.0 installed on it. We have a modem connected to the file server. We just got new workstation computers with Windows 2000. I can now connect to the internet just fine using a LAN connection, but cannot use a LAN connection in Outlook 98 to receive internet email.

When I previously had my old Windows 98 workstation, I could connect thru the LAN modem for both internet email and Internet Explorer. We only have one email address, so there's no use trying from other workstations - everything comes thru my computer. Right now I am having to connect using my local modem. Why can't I use a LAN connection? (Sorry, but I don't know much about networking)

A:Cannot dial into ISP for internet email

Is the LAN connection going through your ISP?

At our ISP I have the mail server set up to where you must be logged in to our network before you can send and recieve e-mail through us. It's basically to thwart spammers....

I'm looking for a software program/script (?) to automatically dial/redial dial up 3+ differrent dial-up network connections.

Overview: My ISP has 3 dial up numbers and I would like to find a program/script that would automatically dial-up an Internet connection I have for my ISP and keep hanging up & redialing my ISP until it reaches a preset speed (for example, at least 41K-). Then (if it can't make connection on that line at a predetermined speed I selected, it would hang-up and automatically dial the next of the 3 ISP #'s I have for the same ISP (or a different ISP) and keep doing that with all 3 phone numbers (one after the other of course).

I would want it to do that over and over, automatically, until it finally reached a connection speed I preset (for example 43K). That way when I wake up, I could start the program and let it run for an hour (or however long it takes) while I get ready, until it was able to connect at target speed I preselected, which could take a long while on my voice grade line.

The phone lines are lousy around here, so I DESPERATELY need something like this. Does anyone know of any software program or any way to jimmy-rig something, fairly easily, to do that? (the point of all this is to get as good of a dial up speed as I can get where I live on my voice grade phone lines here, because there is NO Cable/DSL where I live!

A:Need Software/Script or? to Automatically dial & redial, dial-up Network Connections

Dial up networks are a strange breed. But connection speeds aren't what you're looking for. In fact, you want to know what bandwidth you have. I've seen 28k connection with a good solid bandwidth. Check your numbers and find the one that gives you the best return. I don't know of any automated scripts like that, but some programmers here might be able to help. Keep in mind, that when you hit a jump station your connection drops, and your overall connection speed is decided by the weakest link between you and your telephone number you're calling. So changing numbers changes the direction of your signal. I hope a programmer jumps in and has an automated solution for you.

This is something very strange, and if this is a big problem to fix, I am just going to have to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch.

I have a Gateway PC with I.E 6 with Windows 98 as my OS. I also have a DSL Internet Connection and this problem just started today.

I can play media content just fine (or, I should say....so far with Windows Media Player 7) However, when I go to this one particular website:

www.tpirtv.com which is a website devoted to the TV Gameshow, the Price is Right, I can not play any of the videos, even though I could play them fine last week. What happens is, shortly after Windows Media Player opens, my Internet-Dial Up connection appears even though I have no dial-up connection. (I run DSL) The user name is blank, the screen name is blank and it says that I am off-line (like I am using dial-up, which I am not.)

Second issue, if I open OE 6 to read my mail, the dial-up connection wizard also opens! What's going on??!!!

hi there,

i connect to the internet via dial up. No, not to AOL, just an ISP you haven't heard of. Everything works fine, just that few days ago, when i started dialing, it stopped making any sounds where you can hear the number being dialled and when it connects.

Is there a way to switch the sound back on, I checked my Volume control, Line-In and they aren't on Mute. So whats the problem?? Bear in mind, everything works! just no sound like it used to do.

Good Evening,

I have working (according to Windows XP trouble shooter) Realtec AC'97 Audio for Via sound card except that nothing comes out of the speakers or headset. I have run all the troubleshooting panes, downloaded all the latest drivers from Realtec, reinstalled SndVol32.exe. The only sound that will play is the dial tone and connection sounds when I use a dial-up server. That plays well but you can't dance to it.

Anyone have suggestions on what else I can check and how?

Thanks in advance,

I'm having trouble when I set up a dial up connection. For some reason my computer creates a duplicate of any connection I make.

If I go to 'Start' then 'Control Panel' then 'Internet Options' then 'Connections' then look in the window where my dial up connections are listed I see 2 of the same connection listed and both are marked as (Default) only one works and I cannot delete the other. If I try to remove the one that works, both are removed.

Don't know how it started but the problem I have is that when I try to go online through the dial up it puts the computer into a loop and locks it up.

I am having a dial up issue with an unknown program. I use a DSL modem but some program is using a dial up connection phone number. This happens every day of the month and has been going on for several months. The calls are made to a phone number in Asheville, NC - (828)-251-1626. The calls show up on my landline phone bill and since it is a local call there is no dollar charge for the calls.

My question is how do I determine what program on my computer(s) is making the calls? I also have DirecTv and the system is hooked up to my phone line. I have spoken to Tech Support at DirecTv and was informed they only access their system periodically.

Any help to allow me to stop the calls to the 251 number is appreciated.

Hi All,

I'm trying to help my girlfriend get MSN dial up working on her lap top and have run into a bizzare error that I've never heard of before. Connecting to the 1-800 number to download local acess numbers works so the modem is not faulty; however, when she then goes to dial the local access number to sign on she gets:

"MSN is unable to find the proper dial-up credentials on your computer."

The modem doesn't even trial to dial. She just gets that error. Her laptop is running Windows XP and it's a fresh install. (I just did it last week). She is also set to administrator. I've tried to google this error but the closest thing I can find is a post about damaged credentials, but in that scenario the modem did dial. We tried that fix (something about ctrl + shift + F12 and then clearing the credentials) to no avail.

I'm completely stumped. Thanks for any help!

I am wondering if it is possible to connect my home PC back in India from here in USA. I tried net meeting, remote desktop connection, but i got errors.

Can some experts guide me how to do this. I think this will not be allowed as its something like hacking. I use a cable modem and router, while the internet connection in India is a dial up 56 kbps.

I read on internet that both the PCs must be on same network for netmeeting, etc to work, so how do i do that. Also is it true that the IP address given by ipconfig is not the actual IP address, i should somehow get the WAN ip address of both PC's. I do not know how to get that.

Guidance would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

A:Connect my PC in India from US

When you are connected to a router your computer's IP address is a private address assigned by the router. For your public IP address look at the router's WAN status or go here: http://www.whatismyip.com/

To connect by Remote Desktop your India PC has to be configured properly; for XP Pro this just means set to allow RD. For other systems you need some third party software. And, of course, the PC has to be connected to the internet. You will probably not enjoy RD with dial-up, and unless it's a pretty decent dial-up it may be too slow to work at all. Good luck.

Hi ranger610,

I suggest you to check the connection settings of your modem.
Also to make sure there is no malware installed on your system, I recommand you to download HijackThis from here :
- extract the zip file into a permanent folder (example : C:\Program Files\HJT);
- close all open applications;
- run HijackThis : click the Scan button, click the Save log button to get a file called hijackthis.log;
- post the log file in attachment to this thread.

I have searched through the forums and don't think that this exact question has been asked before.

We have two computers here in seperate rooms roughly 40 feet from each other. Both running Windows XP with 10/100 Networking cards and USB ports.

We don't appear to be able to get DSL/Cable service at this address.

We need a way to connect the two computers so that they can both use the internet at the same time and at seperate times. The location of the computers would make it so that it would be very hard to connect outbound using just one of the modems, ie they are both in bedrooms so if the other is asleep connecting through their modem would be an issue.

Is there a way to do this inexpensively and easily.

Are there external modems that could be shared, ie, used by either to dial out and then able to be connected to by the other if it is in use.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help and my apologies if this has been asked before and I missed it.

I have another computer with a "AMD Athlon 1700+" and don't have any problems.

I have a Actiontec 56K Internal PCI Call Waiting Modem v.90 & v.92 compatible. Model No.PCIV9212-01CW.
The 1700+ system is identical except for the CPU. Running WinXP Pro SP2 & using the same brand and model modem.
I sign on at 26.4 Kbps. sometimes 28.8 Kbps.
Being that the 1700+ system has no trouble with the Actiontec modem and WinXP Pro SP2 I doubt that is the problem.
I have tried with the security set to Low, Zone Alarm not running, NOD32 unstalled and all other programs shut down.

Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Kingston 1GB PC 3200 400 MHz 2x512MB Dual Channel Ram
SOLTEK "SL-K8TPro-939" VIA K8T800 Pro Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket

Hi, i recently got a few parts for my computer and now my modem doesn't work.
I bought a Gigabyte S-Series GA-MA78GM-S2H Motherboard, an AMD Athlon x2 (2.56ghz) Processer, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, and a power supply.
My modem is pine fm 3621 ESS 2818 and it says on the modem v1.2 or something like that. I have a driver for it, i'm almost certian its the right one because it can dial just fine but when it gets to 'Verifying user name & Password' part it disconnects and sometimes gives me Error 678 which basically says its going to close the port for no reason, sometimes i get error 719 or 619 one of those, i am positive that the number i'm dialing works, AND my username + password but i just don't know why i keep getting these errors.. I am using Windows XP Service pack 2, i use to have Vista but someone said that the drivers i was using was for XP only.. so i installed XP and sure enough i still got the error

And another thing, i've tried to get another driver for it...but i can't uninstall the current driver it just keeps reinstalling.. so i have no way to install the new driver.. And sometimes it even connects, but a second later it'll disconnect and say "Connection failed.." or something similar.

Any help is much appreciated, thx

A:Problem with my dial-up modem

Does your modem have two ports for the telephone line connector? If so, one is incoming and the other is usually for a pass through to a regular telephone. Is your phone line connected to the correct jack, that is, the incoming line? The pass through connector usually has a telephone symbol next to it.

Hi, Last night my power flashed because of snow when i was online and then when it came back on my computer wouldnt load windows properly so i had to load in safe-mode and then normal worked after a few tries and has since. But now i can only dial-up to the internet once every time i start my computer (i have to re-start my computer everytime i dial-up in order for it to work). So i used a diffrent provider and still had the same problem. When i went to dial-up again it would have some stupid error or keep switching access numbers...the modem dials...makes sound...clicks off...redials...repeats. Then i restart and it works again. I know its not my ISP and was wondering if anyone else had similar problems or could help me. It would be much appriciated and save alot of time and money

Hi I have a friend who has a dell which is running XP and they have been using dial up internet becuase highspeed isn't available in their area. To make a long story short i haven't looked at the computer but was wondering what would cause this problem:

when they dial up to go onto the internet their computer shuts down by itself?

could this be a virus or something with their modem

I have been blaming this problem on my ISP, but yesterday, I found out it was not their problem.

But I do not know what is wrong with my PC. Help!

I am running WIN98 SE and IE 5.5, Up to date Norton virus definitions and Zone-Alarm. My Norton has never found a virus.

Here is the problem.
For about the last 3 weeks, I am unable to brouse the internet in the afternoon. I connect at the typical speed(57,600) and stay connected but very little data is transmitted slowly for a while and then it stops. This NEVER has occured when I try it before around 10 am. But 99% of the time after 3 pm is when the problem is there. I do not use it much during the other hours.

Here is some data.

>2:00 PM No 0:15 5,000 Then stops Estimate
>3:00 PM No 0:15 5,000 Then stops Estimate
>6:12 PM No 0:20 3,295 Then stops
>6:15 PM No 0:35 13,804 Then stops
>8:20 PM No 0:10 1,174 Then stops
>6:00 AM Yes 0:18 19,262 OK continued surfing
>1:10 PM No 0:15 1,580 Then stops
>5:20 PM No 0:20 6,615 Then stops
>8:35 PM Almost 2:40 53,191 Then stops
>8:40 PM No 1:20 12,200 Then stops

This is typical data and I have more. If I connect to a different ISP, the data transfers and I can surf, but it is extremely slow. I would estimate below 15K.

I found out it was in my PC when I connected my laptop from work last night and got good data transfer.

Once, when I was having trouble around 2 pm, I re-set my PC's clock to 2 am, re-booted and it did not help.
