Have you checked your firewall, to see if its letting it through?
Just after I moved back to S.Wales, and got everything connected again, ZA was not allowing access for some reason, that was my reason.

Just an update - I have been working on this all day!! Been though 4 Reps today latest one tonight who was very cocky to me the previous rep thought it might of been a Windows XP problem so I reinstalled XP in which I did at the time of finaly getting onto AOL Dialup I received an email to confirm that my line had been upgraded to Broadband this I tried and I still get the same error message

"The access network failed to properly respond"
