    Default Windows 7 ultimate freezing when trying to redial a connection

    Basically, I am having this issue: http://www.indiabroadband.net/bsnl-b...ws-xp-7-a.html

    My OS is Windows 7 64bit ultimate version. I have the dial up connection so every time I log on to the system, I have to manually dial up in order to establish the connection. Problem is, that once connection gets disconnected by itself, and if I try to redial, it freezes the system for a good minute or two. System slowly responds afterwards and sometimes I could connect back, but most of times I have to reboot. This is very annoying because I am hardly able to download large files at all.

    Please help.

    This could be related to some malware that is living in your computer. Try doing a full scan and see if that helps. If it doesnt then how about setting up your modem to dial automatically? That way you wont ever have to dial yourself. I agree this is not a very good way of resolving your issue but thats the best I can think of.

    You would be surprised at how many problems are fixed by wither of these steps:
    >> system cleanup,
    >> system drive defragmentation,
    >> scanning for viruses and spyware and removing them if found,

    for network issues:
    start >> tyoe in cmd in the little box >> rt click >> run as admin,
    type in "netsh int ip reset reset.txt" >> press enter, restart computer with modem kept on,

    the last resort, and only as the last resort:
    >>>> format and clean install of windows after thorough backup.

    What is the make and model of your modem? We may already have a tutorial on the forum, just need to search using the search function on top right of the page.

    The tutorial is for a different model but yours isint much different from whats shown there. If you get stuck on something please post and I be happy to guide you one step at a time.

    I am getting stuck in the very beginning itself. Soon as I enter http://192.168.1.1/, the IE or Firefox both tries to "find" the "website". It does not open with the router configuration page and ends the search with message "The page cannot be displayed."

    It always happened correctly when I used XP, but I am on Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit right now.

    Is your modem plugged in using the LAN cable? Also check your modem's manual and see what the default login IP is.
