call warning

hi, Im a poor dial up user. is there a free programme anywhere that will tell me if someone is trying to get through on my phone while I am surfing the net, or even disconnect me from the net so I can take the call. I believe Netscape used to have such a programme.

Dunno of anything free! You would need to request Call Waiting from your phone service provider and use a product such as click here.

The other option is to use a V92 modem to provide 'modem on hold' which allows you to take a call, and hold the internet connection. Trouble is, not many UK ISPs support this feature at the moment.
