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???

No battery available for Lenovo Ideapad 510 bought 14 months back. Service Centres in India and neither the Lenovo India Management have any clue or ETA about the battery availability or its pricing as confirmed by them. Few other Lenovo exclusive charging or rather black marketing with different high prices with various warranties for those batteries. They do not have any uniform pricing patterns which raises issues on its authenticity.
Feel cheated and deceived for putting trust in such a company leaving aside other brands like Dell and HP.

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.

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.

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??!!!

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?

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 used spybot but didnt help, used cws schredder, Regcleaner , hijackthis (deleted some entries but cant show you log file atm cause i dont have the pc here.) Did a search with norton but nothing showed up neither. Then i manually searched for anything with the name axis and with first search i found a few things deleted them and when i rebooted that dialer just came back and next search didnt show anything anymore (no program or file with the name axis present on the harddrive).When i try to make a dialup connection with my normal provider it says that the modem is allready in use. When i delete it in my network connections it keep ons comming back out of no where

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!

We recently switched our ISP from Iowa Telecom to Netscape, for reasons that it was cheaper. Well my problem is that my PS2 wont connect with the Netscape sever, the message my PS2 gives me is Authenticaion Failed, you get this when you havent entered your screen name or password correctly, I have entered all of the information that was needed and I know for a fact that I entered it correctly. I have talked to a friend of mine and he said that it could be like a pop-up blocker or firewall or incorrect DNS numbers, but we dont have a firewall and the DNS numbers are set on automatic just like our home PC, and I guess it could be the pop-up blocker that Netscape uses that is giving me the trouble, but I dont know for sure. Obviously its working through our computer or I wouldn't be posting. But I have noticed that when my PC connects it makes a different sound than what my PS2 makes when connecting,(I also noticed that when I had my old ISP, when my PC and PS2 were connecting they made the same sound) I dont know if this is a componet or not. My old ISP worked fine and didnt have any problems. So, im looking for some help on this issue and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My internet service provider is verifying my user name and password twice whenever I try to connect to the Internet. This causes unnecessary delay in connecting to the Internet. I wrote to the ISP and they didn't fix problem. The only thing that may have contributed to this problem is that when I signed up with this ISP, I inadvertently submitted the information to sign up twice. Despite this, my ISP has told me that I only have one account, so I'm at a loss to understand what is going on.

A:Dial Up Sharing Problem

Dial up is amazingly slow. Split the slowness between 2 computers and you are left with basically no speed. The software should have stopped you from doing it in the first place. I would recommend getting broadband. Dial up is becoming more and more useless as the rest of the world gets broadband. Most computers no longer even ship with dial up modems.

I am in the process of performing a fresh install of NT 4.0 Server on a new drive.

So far the configuration is as follows:

* WinNT 4.0 Server
* Option Pack
* SP6a
* MS Updates (all “Critical” and “Recommended”)

After SP6a replaced IE 4.0 with IE 5.0, I entered all Modem configuration settings, RAS settings, DUN settings, and IE 5.0 properties settings. For several days everything worked OK until I installed all of the updates available from Microsoft (one of which was IE 5.1 and other associated files). It was at this point when I realized that the dialog box which displays the User Name and Password had dropped this information. No problem, right? Just re-enter it, check the Save Password and the Connect Automatically boxes—problem solved. Yeah Right!

I have now spent the last 3 days trying to alter or replace every variable I can find. I’ve changed device drivers. I have found no clues in the event viewer. I installed TweakUI, hoping I would find something on the “paranoid” tab. I now spend evenings wading through Microsoft’s KB articles. (You know, that KB search utility really needs a serious overhaul.)

Aside from the inability to save the User Name and Password, everything is working OK.

Any possible solutions to this problem will be greatly appreciated.

I have an HP7275 Pavilion(1996) with an Apache 56kb modem(made by Rockwell). Lately I have not been able to dial out to any ISP. I get the message that there is a problem with "Dial-Up Networking" and no dialing tones are heard. All the modem settings seem to be correct and I have tried various configurations with the modem cable. A phone on this line dials out OK, so I don't think it is the line. Also sometimes I see a message saying "Device installer error...setup cannot load installer netdi.dll for the net hardware." When I tried to re-install it, it said “There is already a dial-up adapter”. Of other note: one of my kids recently installed a copy of AOLv6. Could that have caused this? I am currently trying to establish a connection thru Juno…

Now up until yesterday the connection was running all right, then something odd happened.
I was online, and the connection unexpectedly dropped. A phone call came in at basically the same time as the connection was redialling, and the call was cut off.
After this my dial up program repeatly gave me error message 680, there was no dial tone. I did the diagnostics, checked the cable connection and phone lines, everything was fine.
Now the weird part, the connection will work if the phone receiver is off the hook, or the speaker phone is on, if only for a few minutes at a time.

hi, i'm running windows xp with a dial-up connection (i'm from australia where broadband is really behind) and i'm having a strange problem where 75% of the time i connect to my isp through the phone line, the computer will sort of freeze up, although i can still move the cursor and use the current window/task i'm viewing, but can't switch to any task and can't use the start menu, and the keyboard is not "keyjammed" either.

the only way that i've found to get out of it is to continuously press ctrl+alt+del many times, which will eventually make many instances of the task manager come up, which will somehow unfreeze the computer and make it go back to normal. this makes it especially hard for my parents who don't know much about computers...

i'm unaware of any registry changes that were made, or any changes made by installing a program. personally i've never experienced such a problem using dial-up internet... i find it kind of weird. any help at all would be much appreciated.

thanks and regards,

My OS is Windows 2000 and approximately 3 months ago my internet browser (V5.5) and my dial-up connection started acting up.
- My dial-up connection will lock-up after few minutes being connected, making it impossible to disconect. I have to manualy unplug the phone line or turn off the computer to drop the connection.
- While browsing the internet, some links would not respond, others would take me to a wrong destination...
- Ctrl-V/ctrl-C commads do not function.
I am pretty much frastrated enough to reformat my HD and reinstall everything from scratch. However, this would be a very painfull task. Is there a way to avoid this? I ran the repair function for IE in the control panel, but it did not do the trick. Can anybody help, please?

I just had to reinstall Windows 2000 pro and when I tried to log onto the inet my dial up wouldn't work. I went to dial up netoworking and it had been removed so I added a new connection. Everything worked great until I tried to name it my ISP name and it gave me an error message about it had to contain a character and could not begin with a period. Tried several different combos to get it to take it but would not let me complete. Anybody every had this problem and how did you solve it. Thanks

it doesnt really matter what you put in there, it doesnt necessarily have to be the exact name of your ISP. You can name it whatever as long as your phone number, username, and password are correct the connection should work.

A:Dial up Internet Problem

Not sure if there is an option there may be but you could setup windows to do it.

Go in to Internet Explorer
Select Tools and internet options
Select connections and select dial whenever a network connection is not available.
Make sure the correct Dialer settings are your default
Now just put and internet shortcut in the startup folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Unless someoe comes up with an easier option.

I just started using a new computer with XP pro, I have norton AV installed. Every time I connect with my dial up The connection goes active immeadiatly even though I have no programs running. When I disconnect a window pops up after a few seconds saying the "you or (a program) is trying to get information from bot.atz.com.ar. do you want to connect now". If I cancel in a few seconds it is back. I found that if I shut down the computer and reboot this doesn't happen until I sign on the internet. Any ideas?? Is this virus or spy wear? How do I get rid of it!!

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.

Hello, I have just installed a new internal modem, ESS chipset PCI V.90 ESS 2838. It took several attempts, but the computer finally recognized the modem on COM 3. When I try to make a dialup to my ISP, however it begins to dial, but then a blue screen comes up and says, "A Fatal Exception 00 has occureed at 0028:C18F53F7 in VXD UNIMODEM (03) + 000003D7. The current Application will be terminated."

Then it says press any button to continue or Ctrl Alt Del to restart computer. When I push another button to continue it just goes to a blank screen and the computer freezes.

Does anyone know what I can do to make the modem dial out instead of going to a blue screen and freezing? Please help and I thank you beforehand for any information you can give me. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Every since I upgraded my computer I have the following problem:
When I connect to the Internet (Dial Up DUN) the first time every thing works fine.
If I disconnect and reconnect I am unable to do anything (use my browser to surf the internet etc).
The only way to correct this problem is to restart my computer.
I think in some way it has to do with the "AMD Athlon 64 3200+". (AMD says no way) (SOLTEK say not there problem)
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
939 CPU
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000 Color quality 16 bit & 32 bit
ZoneAlarm Pro verison Firewall
NOD32 Antivirus System
