Maybe someone can advise me about a problem I have with my Internet connection. I have recently bought a new computer and have the following software/hardware:
Windows XP Home, version 5,1 with SP2.
Internet Explorer 6.
An external dial-up modem, Acer 56 Surf USB AMU-RE01.
The Internet connection is very unpredictable and has behaved in 3 different ways after double clicking the Internet Explorer icon:
Thinking that perhaps an updated modem driver would help, I visited the Acer website and downloaded an application file for the driver. However when I double click the file I get a message ‘Unzip not successful’. I have checked the properties of the application file to unlock it but I still get the same message.
If anyone has any ideas about why all this is happening and any suggestions about what I should do, I would be grateful.

Unzip not successful -> may be the result of incomplete/partial file download or corrupt file - try it over.
That's the easy part.
Personally, I HATE USB soft modems....
You could try plugging the modem into a different USB port;
If you have other things connected to other USB ports, try removing them and see if it helps.
Otherwise, new driver, or new modem would be my suggestions...
