windows xp dial up connection problem

  Les50 13:03 02 Apr 03

i am waiting for freeserve to set up broadband i have installed all the software etc no problem.
i had to run setup and repair some damaged files
which seemed to go ok . Here is the question i need to set up a dial up connection to use freeserve anytime until Broadband arrives within 10 days, but when i try and creat a new connection the dial up is greyed out and the radio dot is against broadband only. i have reinstalled both freeserve and all the broadband software again but it's still greyed out.
Any ideas please

Un-instal broadband until you get it, I think the broadband program may be over-riding your dial-up option.

I think this is the fix you want, no idea why it happens, had it happen ona couple of new systems with no software installed in the past!

has it ever worked?

yes i created the freeserve anytime connection manually with no problems and used it for months.

It worked ok even with the Broadband software etc installed.

i have even restored the old settings before the repair of xp with no joy.

i think probably a format and clean reinstall could be the only answer, but thats a bit drastic dont you think

any more suggestions?
