I recently bought a used Toshiba "Satellite" 2105CDS (WIN98se) laptop.
After I downloaded the drivers for this model from Toshiba's site, I formatted
the HDD and installed Win98SE (not from a "System Restore" CD).
I installed the drivers. Everything is fine, but the dial up connection
(using internal 56K modem). Unlike my other Win98 computers, when I
"connect" (via "Dialer"), "Connect" and "Confirming password" is normal
(quick). "Logging on to network" takes a long time before this is finished
(Dialer window closes and small icon appears in System Tray). I have tried
several times on different days. My other slower computer, doesn't have this
problem. Note: Afterwards, I have no trouble browsing and downloading
(download speed is always fast for dial up).
As a test, I installed a new PC card modem and it's driver. Using
that modem, I still have the same problem!
I called Toshiba tech support and he told me to check settings and compare
them to the other computer. I already did that. Do you have any idea what
might be causing this?
Thanks in advance, Brad
Before you type your password, credit card number, etc.,
be sure there is no active keystroke logger (spyware) in your PC.
