tiscali broadband

  The Sheep 18:49 08 Feb 2006

Hi all. I've got a problem with my tiscali boradband connection and i'm looking for some advice. (running WinXP home)

OK, when i connect to the internet (clicking on IE from the desktop) i usually get the wee connection dialogue box (the one you used to get with dial up) with my connection details on it and i click connect. For some reason this is now not appearing and i cant connect to the internet.

I havent changed anything recently and I've tried going back over a week on system restore and it wont let me do it that way as it says it cant restore because there have been no system changes.

Can anoyon help me as this is not the first time this problem has occurred.

Thanks people.

The Sheep,
I had that problem some months ago on dial-up and finally got sorted by my ISP. Try ringing the support team 0870 7442922. Good luck.

The Sheep,
If you`ve still got your installation disc then do a re-install. It should act as a repair. Sorry I did`nt think of it first.

Open IE and go to tools-internet options-connections. Ensure your connection is set as default then tick 'always dial my default connection'.
