    stop incoming calls while downloading updates


    Everytime I try to download an update etc, the phone rings and knocks me
    off line. I have a dial up network with cyberhotline. Can someone tell
    me how to turn off incoming calls while I am online. Thanks.

    Re: stop incoming calls while downloading updates

    That doesn't make sense. If your phone is off hook with a modem connected
    how can it ring? Do you mean that you have call waiting and that interrupts
    the connection? If so check with your phone company how to temporarily
    disable call waiting. This is normally done by dialing a certain code and
    another to re-enable it later. The method may vary by area.
