MSN 6.0 problem connecting to Internet

By nickygh48 ·
Cannot connect to internet using MSN 6.0. 1 dial-up line for PC and telephone. My modem is a 56k and it tests fine, with WIN98 modem diagnostics. WIN98 error code 678, when I am trying to connect to internet ( my modem dials fine, but no answer fromMSN server ), it tells me to try again later. I have called MS Tech support numerous times with no resolution, of problem. Only way I can get online is using Internet Explorer 5.5, instead of MSN 6.0. Can you offer any help or assistance? Thanks, inadvance, for your support!

Without knowing any or all of your dial-up networking setup entries, frankly you have not provided enough information to do much troubleshooting. However, therein lies the first place to check: dial-up networking entries, type of dial-up service, TCP/IP entries WITHIN dial-up networking. Further, I would write down ALL of your dial-up networking entries as you've got them from within IE5.5 and try to duplicate them as much as possible. You may find that the problem is how you've got your connection setup; for example, is the IP address set as server-assigned or not? And, if so, is that the correct setting for your ISP? May I suggest that you provide a very detailed listing of your connection setup entries.

Since you are and have been thrashing this much with MSN, Stick with IE and forget MSN.
