I've selected the "Save Password" option on Dial Up connection.It's saving a password (or something), but the trouble is, it's not the right one.So I have to erase and then re-enter - which defeats the object. How do I get it to save the right one?!Dave
How many digits are your password and how many show on the sign up?
I thought that maybe it was being "doubled up" but my password is 10 digits and the one that's being saved is 16...Dave
If you can connect ok without re-entering your password then there is no problem.I take it you are using XP? I noticed this when I used it. The password you type in is ok, but when you go to connect it will display **************** regardless of the length of the password.
It is a security feature - somebody watching over your shoulder won't know how many characters there are in your p/w.
So that's the answer!Once or twice it didn't log on so I assumed the password was knackering things. Now it DOES log on even with the "long" password!Why don't Microsoft tell us these things? (Maybe they don but I just don't look!)Dave
