BTbroadband User Accounts

Hi all


I am currently subscribed to BT Yahoo! Broadband, and i have recently give my wife her own Windows XP user account. But when she clicks on the BTbb icon, there is no user names, just "Other User" which is like "Guest" account in XP. But if type in the correct username and password for this "Other User" it says connection failed. So i tried connecting to the internet through IE and it came up with a dialogue box tellin me that "This computer is not set up for the internet > click here to choose an ISP, or click here to manually set up and account"

Is there any reason why you cannot just use one account? I have BT broadband and either of us just use it as and when. No login no password.

Well i have solved the problem now any way, i went into network connections > clicked on the Bt brodband connection and selected "allow all users to acces this account" or something on the lines of that.
