Hi there,

When dialing up to the net for some reason the internet explorer dial up part asks for my dial up password, which works fine but i do not know why i have to manually enter my dial up password now as it always used to be automatic,
I went into Internet connections and entered save password but still this problems happens.
Any suggestions on how to make this automatic again??

I remember windows 98 to be very picky about when anything to do with net connections is modified. Try this:

1. MAKE SURE YOU ARE OFFLINE
2. Go to your Dial-up networking folder. (in Win98, I beleve its under "my computer", if not its under "Control Panel")
3. Find the connection you use for internet there and right-click on it and then select propertys
4. In that dialog there should be a checkbox for "Prompt for Username & Password"

Once you have made your changes press OK to lock them in.
Now attempt acsess the net.

I hope this helps
