Dial-up Networking causes reboot

By RNDIEHL ·
Dial-up networking causes one of my Windows98 systems to reboot after verifying user password. I don't have any IRQ or com port conflicts. I've changed internal modems and still have the same problem. Any suggestions.

It doesnt sound likely that dial up networking is causing the problem, but if you already swapped out the modem and if the modem is functioning properly, I would uninstall and reinstall dial up networking and possibly tcp/ip and rename your *.386 files. See if you can run winipcfg, if you cant you know there is a problem

One quick comment on the previous answer: winipcfg is for Win95 - in Win98, the utility is ipconfig.

I don't disagree with the suggestion to uninstall and reinstall the TCP/IP stack and DUN but I wonder what you're connecting to when this happens. If you are connecting to a NT VPN using PPTP, it would seem to me you'd want to look at the VPN client rather than the DUN function itself (I'm assuming that you are connecting to a server and it is the password on that server that is being verified).

One other suggestion - I saw a similar problem recently that turned out to be related to a logon script. It might be worth temporarily disabling any logon scripts and trying it on a user account with no profile.

best wishes...

I would suggest removing and reinstalling DUN. Obviously, it has become corrupt.

I have seen many cases where corrupt DUN causes reboots, BSOD's and other bad things to happen to good people.
