When i first start up my computer and try to get online, I'm not able to without first going to Network Neighborhood one the desktop, right clicking, opening properties, clicking on the Adaptor, then click "add", chosing Microsoft, and then closing it down and then... whew... rebooting my computer. This was supposed to be fixed by my computer guy but obviously not. It's like my dial-up adaptor is not being identified or something. Anyway, it's driving me nuts and besides is very time consuming. Thanks for any assistance you might offer.

Perhaps completely removing and then reinstalling DUN (dialup networking, which is what I assume you're having to re-enable on every boot) would fix the problem. No guarantees but it's not difficult so it's worth a shot.

Go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Setup Tab. I don't have access to my Win98 system right now but poke around in the Details for the various categories until you find Dial Up Networking. Uncheck it, click OK and OK to uninstall it. It'll probably require a reboot.

The go back and recheck it and let it reinstall. Have your Win98 CD handy in case it asks for it.

Of course, you'll have to re-do all your connections after DUN reinstalls.

Which ISP are you using? Any competent tech support person should've been able to walk you through setting up your connection correctly.

You may need to delete the current connection in the DIAL-UP NETWORKING folder in MY COMPUTER, then create a new one with the correct settings.
