Q. I'm getting drop-outs, what could be causing it?
Diagnosing drop-outs is extremely difficult. Typically, drop
outs can become worse after heavy periods of rain when water can
enter into telecommunication pits in the street or other parts
of the infrastructure. Drop outs also can occur if you're not
using the correct initialization string for your modem, have
poor phone lines in your area or are using a 'softmodem'.
Ensure the 'Hang up after sending and receiving' check box is unticked.
From the Control Panel, select Internet Options.
From Internet Options choose the Connections Tab. From there, select the dial-up profile you created for Beagle Internet and click Settings.
From the Settings dialog box, click Advanced.
Please make sure that the 'Disconnect if idle' box is unchecked and that 'Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed' is also unchecked.
