XP Guest Account

I have set up the guest account on XP Home edition. All is fine except I cannot log onto the internet. I can see the internet connections (Start>Connections) but nothing happens when I double click on them nor can I setup a new internet connetion in IE (need to be an administrator).

How do I enable a internet connection?

Thanks

I've followed the instructions but still cannot access the internet. If I right click on one of my dial up connections, the connect option is greyed out?

Hold the front page - I've realised what it all means - a account holder must be logged on so that a guest can access the internet.

Doesn't this defeat the object of guest accounts though??

Thanks for your help.

Apologies, Windows XP "Home" guest account has restrictions when it comes to internet access,
Guest is prohibited from activating a dial up connection. Open up a limited use account and let the guest use that.
