    I just had to reinstall Windows 2000 pro and when I tried to log onto the inet my dial up wouldn't work. I went to dial up netoworking and it had been removed so I added a new connection. Everything worked great until I tried to name it my ISP name and it gave me an error message about it had to contain a character and could not begin with a period. Tried several different combos to get it to take it but would not let me complete. Anybody every had this problem and how did you solve it. Thanks

    it doesnt really matter what you put in there, it doesnt necessarily have to be the exact name of your ISP. You can name it whatever as long as your phone number, username, and password are correct the connection should work.

    All info in the set up is correct, but MS will not let me put the name for the dial up to finish the last step. All else worked fine. It will not complete the setup.
