I installed SP2 and my dial-up stopped working

  Dijpo 10:51 14 Oct 2004

I recently installed SP2 and it stopped my dial up internet connection from working. I then un-installed it and the dial connection worked fine again. When SP2 was installed and I tried to log on to the internet using AOL dial-up it kept telling me that my modem was set to an invalid port (com 3) although I had not changed the port at all. I then attempted dialing-up again in all the other ports; Com1, Com2, Com3 etc. and non of these worked, until I then un-installed SP2.

Does anyone know why SP2 would affect my dial-up connection? & what can I do about it?

I believe others have had problems with AOL - and I think there may be a patch either from AOL or from Microsoft which you are meant to install before SP2 - might be worth going to both websites and seeing if you can find anything.
