TCP/IP Protocol

By perezs_98 ·
I recently formatted the HDD and re-installed windows 95 on my laptop. I also Installed MS Exp 4.0. When trying to dial out the system reconizes the modem but gives me error that cannot detect TCP/IP adapter. I have Installed the TCP/IP adapter 2x using windows 95 diskette but after rebooting PC even though the TCP/IP Protocol is there under Netwoking, it still gives me an error and I cannot complete logging onto Internet even if I get the modem to dial out and after accessing username & password. What should I do?

TCP/IP Protocol

Use the Control Panel / Add & Remove Programs icon, go to Windows Setup, Communications and remove Dial Up Networking.

Reboot.

Repeat the above and add Dial Up Networking again.

Reboot.

The Dial Up Adapter should be back and bound to TCPIP

Thanks

Here is what win9x requires in order to access the internet.

1.) The modem installed and verified to work
2.) The Microsoft Dial-Up adapter.(adapter)
3.) TCP/IP bound to the dialup adapter.
4.) Your ISP provided information ( ie, DNS, Gateway, IP ( can be DHCP).

Make sure you have installed the TCP/IP stack. This can be found under "protocols" when you are adding a new networking service.
++Click Add.. / protocols / microsoft / TCP/IP

This should bind the TCP/IP Protocol to your dial up adapter. If you are still having issues i would call your ISP and have them assist you.

Its hard to say exactly what is wrong with- out seeing the errors you are getting. If you can provide the Exact errors it would be helpful.

Good Luck!

Did all of the above and TCP/IP seems to be set properly. I also noticed on device drivers under Network Adapters that there were 2 Installed one had conflict I deleted it and now I do not get Network Adapter error when trying to dial out, however this has not resolved the problem. I cannot access after dialing out, gives error"Unable to establish connection, check you configuration in Network"
Thanks for the advise

Thanks to all who gave me advise. I was able to solve one problem that when I click on Dial up Windows does not bring up a box saying that TCP/IP needs to be re-installed. I also was able to look at the modemlog.txt, it seems that I could connect but then I get error "Unable to establich connection, check your configuration under network settings" the modem hangs up. I know the modem is ok and TCP/IP Protocol is there but still having problems.

Part of your problem may be due to telephone line quality (or lack thereof).

When you speak on the modem line (if you use a regular telephone on that line), do you get a lot of static? If yes, then I'd suggest calling your telephone company and telling them that there's a lot of static on your telephone line and computer communication is interrupted. They can sometimes clean the line by simply sending a signal through it; or they can tell where the problem may be.

If the line works normally when you speak through a phone, then maybe is still is a hardware issue.
