Anyone on dialup have it just freeze sometimes? I am on dialup for a few months here while we are in this apartment and in the 2 and a half weeks we have been here, well almost 3 now I guess, it has frozen a couple of times on us. Probably 3-4 times, requiring a hard restart. It happens when I click on the phone icon in the menu bar to connect to Earthlink. Any tips on how to avoid that?<br><br>
That happens to me once or twice a week. The modem, while in the connecting mode or sometimes while in the disconnecting mode, just hangs there and requires a restart to stop it. I think it's a computer modem problem. Is this with your DP867?<br><br>

Yes, it is the DP 867 like you have.<br><br>Anyone else have any comments or experience with this? Are there any fixes for that? Bad modem script perhaps? <br><br>Might have to check the Apple KB about this I guess.<br><br>
Have you tried an external modem? I would go to Circuit city and get an external and see. <br><br>Then again, what's Dialup? Whats a modem? I think I saw one of those in a history museum!?<br><br>___________________________________________<br>I'm just another Mac user at an 8 hour day Dilbert style cubicle job....<br>
