    Hey, I have just installed win 2k and after going into the, Network and Dial-up Connections, Make new connection, I have put all of my numbers in etc, then at the end clicked finnish but as soon as I do that a message comes up saying

    Cannot create a dial up connection, Go to Network and Dial-up Connections in My Computer(not exact words)

    I have set up as per normal on another 2k machine but wonder why this is happening on mine.

    Thanx

    Have you checked Device Manager to make sure your modem drivers are okay?

    Well funnily enough I didnt have a seamless install with the Driver. Can that actually stop you from creating a dial-up connection before even trying to connect though?

    Thanks

    I can't say for certain, but I think the system would make an effort during dial-up setup to communicate with the modem, and if it can't do so that might cause your error. Again, I'm not positive about this. Just throwing out ideas.
