Friends,

I really need help from the developed world (as I am residing in Zimbabwe and have no support here..).

I bought a new Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Business edition.
All worked fine with Network, W-lan and Dial-up connections.

I had some problems when I gave admistrator rights to a profile I roled the system back to a previous version. As I result, I could work again with all the programs, the network, e-mail and internet.

However, I wanted to dial in with my modem and the command "connect to" did not find the dial-up connection any more. Through "setup connection or network" I tried to install a new dial-up connection but got an error message "Windows could not detect a dial-up modem" " is the modem connected , is the modem switched on?". "Set-up a connection anyways" will not help and solve the problem. I tried it all.

I checked the modem in the device manager. The modem is correctly installed, and works properly. I can also run the diagnosis of the modem in the device manager and it shows that it works. So I am more or less conviced that there is no hardware problem but a vista problem.

How do I get the dial-up back? I need the connection urgently as networks are rare in Southern Africa and we have to go through old-fashioned dial-ups. Could you help me? If you need further clarification, I can give.

Many many thanks!
