View Full Version : Internet Disconnects

03-02-07, 01:38 PM
I recently reinstalled W98 on a backup computer and am having problems keeping an internet connection. I get disconnected automatically at random times. My modem is on COM4. Is that where it should be? If not, how do I make a change.

I had reformatted the drive before installing W98. Can there still be some kind of virus on it?

Any help is appreciated.

I bet your ISP is booting the connection because you're seeding malware. Do you even have a firewall on that machine? If you're RAS with no firewall then that machine is already owned.
