A friend (80yr old) has just got hold of a computer with xp on it,
Trouble is, his modem seems to shut down if inactive for a while; I went
to his control panel and
clicked on 'phone/modem', but instead of showing details, it just brings
up a dialogue box for
setting up a modem.
Where are the dialogue boxes that show all the settings etc? I want to see
if I can find a tick-box
or similar to tell the modem to stop shutting down,, even if its more
than an hour or more.
On my win98 machine, I go to c/panel and and click on modem, and I find
heaps of options.
Hard to say without knowing a lot more, e.g.
- Brand & model of modem
- Type of connection between PC and modem (Serial? CAT5? USB?)
- Is this a modem/router?
