Internet Connection Wizard Problems

  usp892 18:03 27 Mar 2004

can't make a new internet connection every thing is fine until I name the connection(this should be any name)and i get the following message "pipex" is not a valid name.The entry name must contain at least one character that is not a space and cannot begin with a period.Choose a different name.
I am running win 2000 with outlook.Have tried reloading modem and reinstalling win2000 on top .To no avail...

Have spoken to "pipex" customer support and after trying several different names all they could suggest was a clean install...really don't want to do that any help much appreciated

If you have the details for the account set it up manually

I am afraid that's what i'm trying to do but can't get past this "name the connection page" definetely works as I've got it working fine on a mates borrowed laptap.I don't seem to have dial up networking???
