I have a Dell Latiude Laptop and installed Windows 2000 but now I can't seem to setup my Modem. the Modem Driver itself seemed to install and I can see the modem as well as run Diagnostics on it. but when I go to set up a Dial-up Network it doesn't give me the Country/Regions. also I can't access the Telephony files in the Services area it gives me an "Error 5" saying I need admin right. I have admin Rights.

Any Help would be appreciated
Thanks
Lotek. :confused:

Try logging off your "User" account and logging back in with "Administrator"account. They are not the same,your "User" account has (typically)limited administrative access and the "Administrator"account has full administrative access.Also you could try from safemode.

Hi rude I've done both Log in as admin as well as come up in safe mode. the problem is that I'm trying to fix the Country code but think it may have something to do with me not being able to access my Telephony and RMA. but can't figure out why.

Have you checked to see if the Telephony Service is set to automatic and running?

Stolen directly from "Help and Support"

To configure a connection
Open Network Connections.
For example, to configure a dial-up connection, click the connection you want to configure, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.
Do one or more of the following:
To configure dialing devices, phone numbers, host address, country/region codes, or dialing rules, click the General tab.
To configure dialing and redialing options, or X.25 parameters, click the Options tab.
To configure identity authentication, data encryption, or terminal window and scripting options, click the Security tab.
To configure the remote access server and protocols used for this connection, click the Networking tab.
To enable or disable Internet Connection Sharing, Internet Connection Firewall, and on-demand dialing, click the Advanced tab.
Notes

To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.
Internet Connection Sharing, Internet Connection Firewall, Discovery and Control, and Network Bridge are not available on Windows XP 64-Bit Edition.
Depending on the type of connection you are configuring, different options and tabs appear in the connection's Properties dialog box.
For more information about a specific item on a tab, right-click the item, and then click What's This?
