Thank you, man.

It's the same about me, no high-speed in my city yet. Yeah, I tried updating the modem driver. And it's PCI, as I said.

What you mean? I just used the dial up connection wizard and put on the ISP phone number and username and password.

Sorry, man, didn't mean to sound upset.

Also didn't mean I have an onboard modem. I use PCI modem. I can't recall right now its model, I only know the brands. I have to modems: conexant and intel. I'll try to get the model.

Okay sorry , Right-click the network icon in your system tray, you dial-up connection should be in the connection list..right-click on it and hit status..it should bring up a different window..on that window hit properties..then there should be 5 tabs

General, Options, Security, Networking and Sharing..Give the settings on each tab except Sharing(I don't need that one.)

EDIT: Because i remember accidentally messed with a setting on these tabs and i had same problem you have now, lol.

No problem, you got to install the latest drivers for Windows 7, mostly likely need to install them in compatibility mode. Because I'm sure there none for Windows 7. I won't settle for just getting back online, I would check that they were installed properly the first time when you installed Windows 7. And since you are using two different modems and two sets of drivers, you might be complicating your computer.

You could also try to goto Device Manager and uninstall the modem there and have windows 7 reinstall it again.

I tried to, but it says Windws 7 already have the upated drivers.

I use only one, just put the other on to test it, after finding problems to connect.

I've tried it a lot of times.

Hey, you guys, I've solved it!

I decided to boot up to try some changes more and found out what was going on:

As I have 56k connection, I use this program called NetLimiter (google it) where I can see whatever is sucking my connection and limit or block any application's bandwidth. So, very useful for whoever has dial up connection. It's like a sort of firewall.

So, yesterday I realized svchost.exe was sucking my connection and just added rules to block its bandwidth. That's what caused all this. I deleted the rules and it's working again!

Thank you very much, guys!

Glad you found out what caused it.
