After over a year of no problems, my Internet connection jumps to what appears to be a 56k phone, though my cable modem remains bringing material in at 56k (or ?--very slow in any case). When I try to set a new location/protocol, before I am done a message announces that "another application has changed) the setting. Even though I am connected by only the cable modem, I find it impossible to make the internal modem go away. I uncheck it, move the cable modem above it and lock the result. Then, likely as not, I get the message above. How do I get a stable, unchanging connection? How do I determine which program is overriding my settings? I am running MacOSX 3.5

All help is appreciated; the sooner, the better.

Ken,

I'm assuming that you're on the "Network Port Configurations" screen in the Network portion of System Preferences. If so, you're saying that you've unchecked Internal Modem and have Built-in Ethernet checked. Is that correct?

If so, have you tried using your connection under the other user on the machine? If the problem doesn't happen under the other user account, I'm guessing that it's a preference file problem. I'll be honest that it's only a guess since I've never had this problem.

If the problem happens under both users, then it gets a bit more interesting.
