My friend has just been given a computer, its a Packard Bell, Win 98, Ram 64.
She has been trying to set it up but the words.....Parometer is incorrect comes up onto the screen, could you explain what it is and whether it can be corrected please, thank you,

Regards Gail

What is she "trying to set up" - networking or something else?

What application is throwing up an error about parameters?

She is trying to set up BT Broadband when it comes up.

I don't use ADSL broadband so cannot help with the specifics of setting it up, but she needs to check that she hasn't entered an incorrect or invalid setting somewhere.

Perhaps someone with BT Broadband can offer detailed help?

She has already contacted BT once but did not seem to have got anywhere, obviously its not the computer but the ISP then.
Thank you for the info;

Regards Gail

"She is trying to set up BT Broadband when it comes up. "

At what stage does this come up?

"obviously its not the computer but the ISP then"

Still could be the computer....
