Status of a Dial-up connection in XP shows in the last line a data as Errors. What are these? Normally the error in sent coloumn is 0 and occassionally in the received coloumn is 2 or 3. Recently my system shows hundreds in received coloumn and the download speed is also abysmally low. I tried to check the phone line with the line man. He did some changes. It seemed somewhat better for a few days and now again the same problem occurs. Sometimes the connection hangs. I am unable to close the connection. I had to reboot several time for this. Even after the connection dropped and the telephone line gives the dial tone, the connection icon on the tray does not go and the system says that the modem is in use. Can anybody tell me a solution?
