dial up networking

By hotrodgers ·
i have win 98..and all of a sudden it has started giving me problems with dial up networking...when i click my ie or netscape they come up and give errors and will not dial up..ie says cannot find server, netscape says network may be down, but they will not no longer call up my dial up screen...i can go into dial up networking and manually start my account and it connects fine, but then when i go into my ie or netscape i still get the same errors....i have checked it is not set to work offline,i have refreshed the screens, i have rebooted, i have removed the adapters protocols, etc... and re-installed, i have set up a new dial up account and made it the default, i have double checked my control panel settings and it shows to always dial up my default account....and i still get cannot find server...what can i do tho fix this???
thanks

have you tried fixing IE through control panel add/remove programs, when you select your version & hit the add/remove button it gives you 3 choices one being to fix.
I'm not sure whether Netscape gives similar options, I don't use it.

Also have you tried going to control panel + internet options. click on the security tab & select restore defaults, do the same on the advanced tab, than reboot.

sounds like you checked this already but right click IE, select properties, click connections tab, select always dial my default connection, make sure that the default connection is the one you want to use.

Don't use Microsoft Family Logon. Uninstall it if it's in your network settings. Instead use Client for Microsoft Networks

In Control Panel, Internet Settings, Connection tab, make sure you don't have a proxy set.

Hi,

What are the actual errors you're getting?

Can you ping stuff on the internet when its been "manually" connected?

Type winipcfg from the command prompt and make sure that you've been correctly allocated an IP address.

When you say you click on IE and it doesn't dial up, does it try to - but fail? or nothing at all?
Does it go into "working offline" mode?

In the TCP/IP properties page, you haven't supplied an IP address when your ISP uses DHCP to allocate one to you? or not supplied one when you need to? - I figure you've already looked at that but I had to ask...

Let us know...

Cheers,
Tim.
