1st check your computer icon, double click it and double click
Dial-up networking. See that you only have 1 of the Dun icon set up.
search your registry for multible entries(within the same key) ie; my ISP is erinet, so These key look like this:
@="Network adapters"

"DriverDesc"="Dial-Up Adapter"

"HelpText"="The Dial-Up Adapter lets your computer connect to PPP, RAS and Netware Connect dial up servers using a modem or cable."


"ParamDesc"="Record a log file"


"ParamDesc"="Use IPX header compression"






[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\Profile\1erinet] ERINET My ISP



More enrties than these indicate multiples.
Also Search 'Dial-up networking" you should have 4 entries in [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\
@="Dial-Up Networking"



@="Dial-Up Networking"



if this is confusing get back to me.
The answer if you have multiples would be to remove your old DUN and make a new one
