    XP Modem reconnection problem (XP Pro)

    I'm using a good old fashioned Hayes V92 internal modem to connect to the internet with zonealarm for safety. My isp kicks me off every 2 hours which has never been more than a mild annoyance. If I reconnect to the internet after being kicked off xp tells me everythings hunky doory, except that I can't connect to any web sites, mail servers or chat servers. I had been using XP's firewall, but I switched that off. There's no problems if I boot the same machine with windows 2000 server (same modem, isp etc etc..). Any ideas???

    After several hours reading the threads I saw that similar problems have been effecting people with cable modems, maybe it's MS's firewall playing games...
