If the connection is failing due to the far-end equipment problems, try the action again at a later time.

Verify there are not faults with the connection (internet or dialup).

For dialup, make sure the phone line is not in use and gets dialtone.

For high-speed connections (DSL, WiFi, Cable modem, etc.) try resetting the modem or device connected to the outside line. Be sure to wait about 60 seconds for the device to self-test and return to service.
