Windows 7: Dial up Broadband acting weird

Dial up Broadband acting weird

I had been using BSNL broadband with dialup(bridge mode rite).

Today the stuff got weird. When i press connect the window comes up and I can dial normally. Buy even when I am connected the connect button is still there. If I press again the "port is in use" comes up. Sometimes after some time 10-15 min Connected comes up. I cannot disconnect due to this.

If there is connected written, I can disconnect but the disconnecting takes too long and I can't dial back for about 2 min

Plz help.

Do you have the disks for your modem software? If so, I would see if there is an update for the software online and update. It may just be a bug. If it doesnt fix it or doesnt work then you can always re-install using the original disks.

Just make sure you have the dial up details before you do it.
