Problems with internet connection

  onemadjock 17:46 30 Oct 2003

When i open up any program that uses the internet connection on my computer, the dial up connection box appears but with the incorrect password. Problem is that i've tried changing it to the correct one but it wont save the changes. Any one got any ideas?? This has happened since upgrading to win 2000 from 98.

ahhh the broadband uses X25 protocol, which by default shows the passwords as 16 characters as asterix, even though they maybe less. It is saving your correct password, so dont worry :-)
