save password

by Alpha-Male In reply to save password

If the "Save Password" check-box is inaccessible, it is because "Client for Microsoft Networks" hasn't been installed in the Network area of the Control Panel. To enable this check-box, you have to install the "Client for Microsoft Networks":
Note:You will need your Windows 95/98 CDROM or disks to install components of the Windows 95/98 operating system.

[START] --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Network
Click on the [Add...] button and choose "Client" then click on the [Add...] button.
Choose "Microsoft" and "Client for Microsoft Networks"

Click the various [Ok] buttons until the installation process has finished. At this point, you'll be prompted to restart Windows.

When Windows starts back up, you may be prompted to enter in a Windows login and password--this is NOT the same username and password that you use to connect to the Internet. Enter in a username (whatever you want) and if you want, you can leave the password blank--doing this will make it so that this loginprompt won't come up again the next time you start Windows.

You should now be able to check the "Save Password" check-box when you go to connect to the Net. Your password will be "saved" after you have obtained a successful connection one time.
If not, take a look at this article from MS:

Good luck...hope this helps!
