internet connection problem yet again

hey folks. i had this problem in the past, got advice, the problem went away but now it is back

i have an HP (1st mistake) running ME (2nd mistake) and i use dial up (sad, i know, 3rd mistake) to connect to the net. i can connect fine (shows that i am connected) but there are no more than a few thousand bytes transmitted and i cant load any pages. before, someone mentioned that i had to replace a file (maybe a delphi?) but i cant find the thread. so if anyone has a clue why/how i can connect to the net but not transmit/receive data and wants to help me out, that would be greeeeat.

Try making a new connection. Go to Start -->Control Panel--->internet connections--->make new connection. Then put in your access number along with your username and password. Then make a shortcut to the desktop. Use this to dial the number and log on. See what happens. If it fixes it delete the other connection and make the new connection your default for explorer and your email. If it doesn't work you might want to call tech support of your dial up provider. It might be a problem on their end.
