i'm trying to save my password when in my dial-up-networking connection to my isp but the save password check box is always grayed out. please shed some light!
here's what i've tried so far:
1. uninstalling dial-up-networking and reinstalling it and set up a new connection to my isp (eathlink.net using total access 2.0)= problem persist!
2. creating a second connection to my isp without using the total access software but just by using dial-up-networking = failed too!

Hi,

   Give this a try:

Passwords Not Being Saved:
If you find that after you enter a password and check the "Save Password" checkbox that the password is not actually being saved, then most likely your password file has become corrupt. In the /WINDOWS folder, find the .pwl file for that user, and delete it.
The next time Windows is rebooted, a new file will be generated, and saving passwords should then work once again
