Very slow and intermittent dial-up connection

  skylark101 20:07 02 Sep 04

A friend of mine has recently bought a computer secon-hand and everything seems to be fine apart from his dial-up connection, I set up his dial-up connection myself using the internet connection wizard in XP home, and UK online as ISP. The connection is incredibly slow and at least 80% of the time up comes up with the message: cannot find server, or, web page cannot be found, this apparently happens at any time of the day or night so I find it very unlikely that the server can be that busy all of the time, can anyone help?

I have been having this problem with F/Serve/Wanadoo for the last couple of weeks, I'm not sure if this started with new Norton AV. I have connected(46.6kps), but at hte bottom of the page it says Detecting Proxy Settings, then takes an age to load, next time it loads quite normally.
