Do you do anything else involving transfers of large amounts of data
TO the Internet? Like uploading a file to an FTP server?
Also, what brand and model of modem do you have? What kind of
equipment does your ISP use?
FWIW, I seem to be having a problem like this with my USR Sportster
Voice 56K. It only happens irregularly though.
