Dial-up adapter

Yet another dial-up adapter question.
I'm wondering if anybody else has had this problem...
If I 'remove' the components (all but tcp/ip which is bound to dial-up
adapter) sometimes I get the error message saying that the dial up
adapter is not installed properly or is not responding.  However, if I
unbind them, I have no such problems...  If anybody has seen this
problem please let me know that I'm not the only one in this universe to
have this kind of problem.

Thanks, Eric.

The method used to install networking is important, it can be done more than one way, but only one way will work reliably.

Remove all networking, then reboot.

If you have your PC on a network, install that first.  Get whatever protocols you intend to use working, but DO NOT install dialup networking from network setup.

After your nework is installed properly, go to Dialup Networking, through My Computer, remove any dialup connections already present. Create a new dialup connection, configure it only from Dialup Networking. Be sure to remove all protocols except the one which you will use for your dialup connection. I guess it will be TCP/IP, so be sure to enter any DNS info you have. I imagine you will use DHCP so you will not need the IP info.

If you have Win95A or B, you shouldn't have any trouble doing any of this. If you only have Win95, get the Service Pack Installed and bring it up to Win95A.

When networking starts doing unusual things, thats when I start removing it all and starting over. It hasn't failed me yet.

Thanks Joe for the quick reply!

I kinda already knew that de-install re-install works great.  I was just wondering if there was a possibility of corruption when removing instead of unbinding them.

I think because everything in network setup works so closely together, you will find that it is difficult to not have something go wrong.  I guess my rule is, if it works, leave it alone, if it's broke, fix it. You might get an understanding of what's going on eventually, but if you make it your focus, you will get less work done.  Even things that I understand, and could fix with some configuring; I can save many hours by removing one or both of the products, and putting them back in the right order, so they configure themselves properly. Another rule for me is;  put the smart product in last. It will know what to do when it see's the other less smart software.
