Can't create Network Connection

Hi,
I have windows XP home. Used my recovery disk to restore windows and as a result lost my network connections. I re-installed my broadband software and although it installs successfully, when I click the desktop icon to connect to the net, an error comes up saying "Could not create dial-up networking entry". I have also installed updated drivers, yet that has not solved the issue. Can anyone help please!!

Thanks

Have you gone to

start

settings

network connections and followed the wizard there?

You will need to reset your IE options so that it does not try to find a dial-up connection. In IE, go to <Tools> <Internet Options> and select the <Connection> tab. Choose the <Never dial a connection> option then, press the <LAN Settings> button and select <Automatically detect settings>. If you are using Outlook Express, you will have to make similar changes to your account as well. Go to <Tools> <Options> and select the <Connection> tab. Both dial-up options should be deselected then, press the <Change> button. Choose the <Never dial a connection> option then, press the <LAN Settings> button and select <Automatically detect settings>.

I have tried going to the network connections wizard in the control panel. WHen I got to the option to set up a manual connection, on the next screen which usually has 3 options of Dial-up; Broadband with Username/Password; and Broadband with no password, the top 2 are grey out so i can't select them! Thanks

Have you reinstalled SP1. If memory serves me right USB is problematic until SP1 has been installed.
