Dialup-Networking

By tiefsnow ·
You dial into your ISP, complete your transactions and logoff. What would cause you to have to reboot your computer to logon again. When trying a second logon the screen hangs at "verifing username and password", this is in WIN2K does not matter which number is used to reach the ISP.

A number of things can cause this problem.
First do you use ISP software or do you connect directly through dial up networking? I suggest unistalling any ISP software.
Make sure that the modem is fully congfirgured for win2k.
Make sure nothing else sharing the connection, like Media player upgrading or even Windows update.

this is my guess. when you connect to your ISP, the DLL files might be taking up memory and when you disconnect from your ISP, I believe that memory wont be freed and when you do it again, you waste more memory and the second time you do it, you probably dont have enough memory to continue. when you reboot your computer, this process starts over. This wont happen with every program. I recommend downloading Arachne at browser.arachne.cz. It is an MS-DOS internet browser which doesnt require muchmemory. It even works on an 8086 computer. When you run arachne setup, choose the dialer and then connect. also, make sure nothing is corrupt. run Scandisk.
