    We recently gave our aunt a used pc as we got a newer one. It has Win XP with IE6. She wanted a dial isp so we got her earthlink. Now the issue we are having is that it connects, we see that it actually shows (connected at 28/56kps). However once we click on IE, all we get is "The page cannot be displayed" no matter what we try. We tried the "flush" to no avail. Is there any list of things I can try to get this working properly? Or links/suggestions we can try? I haven't messed with a dial up in years so I am rusty. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank You

    Control Panel - Internet Options - Connections tab - Settings... - make sure 'Use a proxy server for this connection' is NOT checked. I'd also make sure the two options above that are not checked.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.
