I recently bought a new MESH PC. It is an Athlon processor running under Windows XP home edition. From the begining I have had problems with dailup. The process appears to go OK until password validation then falls over with various error messages. This also happens with programs which do their own dialling like Microsoft Works registration wizard. I have found the I can dial up Freenet sucessfully 50% of the time but failed with other ISPs. I reloaded my account information from the ISP web sites. MESH have changed the modem and I have fitted a different modem to no effect. My old PC (Pentium windows 95) has no problems with the phone line. Anyone have avenues I can now explore??
