Internet Connection Set Up Problem

I have had to reinstall my Windows XP but now find that I cannot set up a new internet connection. The connection wizard allows me to complete a manual set up but does not allow me to connect using my internal 56k dial up modem. The option (and the one below for a broadband requiring user name and password) is greyed out. The only option is for a non-existent broadband connection that is always on.

I have gone through all the usual Troubleshooting questions without success. My modem is set up ok and is ready to go but I am at a loss to understand where to go next.

Any ideas folks?

i had that problem a few weeks back, and the following worked for me.....

Run: regedit
Select folders in the following order:
-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
-SYSTEM
-Current Control Set
-Services
-RasMan
-PPP
-EAP
-when you get to this point, you should see 4 folders (numbered 4, 13, 25, 26)
-DELETE: folders 25 and 26

be very careful though. this relates to 'cannot load remote access connection manager service' which i guess youre getting too?
