I have an external USB modem, I'm running Win98, with a dial-up line.

I often find that my modem disconnects, and when the re-dial starts, I get "port already connected". Is therre any way I can force Windows to close the port so I can re-dial? At the moment I have to reboot completely to reconnect.

Dreuby:

Have you tried unplugging the usb modem then plugging it back in?

Hey - isn't it always the most obvious answer that you don't think of? I had an internal modem until Christmas, so I forgot the plug and play option!

Thanks.
