View Full Version : Dialup problem after windows crash

26-05-2004, 07:42 AM
After my win 2k crashed during the weekend I did a repair from the win 2k installation disk, upgraded with sp4, and reloaded IE6. Everything seems functional now except I lost my dial up.
When I try to make a new dial-up connection, in step 3 of 3 where it asks for a name for the dial up connection, no matter what name I give it (even the default "Connection to nnnnnn"), I get a dialog box that says it is not a valid name, must contain at least one character that is not a space.....etc. I cannot get any further than this point. Also when I get to the first screen that asks for the network connection type, only two of the five choices are available, (dial up to internet, and accept incoming calls) the others are greyed out. Not sure that I have seen this before either.
Any ideas appreciated.

I believe if you install SP4 it fixes the problem otherwise reinstall Win 2k
