dial-up Networking blues

I have a Toshiba laptop T4700CT. It has win95 installed. I have purchased a dynalink PCMCIA 1456 VQC. I have no cd-rom player.

When trying to set up an ISP account I have to install dial-up networking. I transferred Win 95 file from my win95 cd onto a zip disk and tried to install dial-up networking. It installs but when I try to use the wizard to get dial-up networking configured I get a Rundll 32 fault on module RNAUI.DLL at 0137:7f724fof.

Can anyone help me get dial-up networking configured on this laptop. Unfortunately the dealer I purchased it from has gone belly up. I'm in Holland a land with super cheese but not much computer support.
Thanks

Download DUN13.EXE from the Microsoft web site free
downloads for Windows 95, and install that on your computer.

That will put DUN to work for you.

Go To:

http://www.microsoft.com/ and search for DUN13.EXE

or search on the internet for DUN13.ZIP

Another thing that you can do is this:

make a directory on your notebook hard disk callled:

C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS

Copy the contents of the directory of \WIN95 on the Windows 95
CD-ROM DISK to your ZIP DISK.

Copy all these files from the ZIP DISK to the new directory
that you just made called: C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS.

Once all these files are copied from the zip disk to
C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS, go to the windows desktop,
click on START, select SHUTDOWN and then select
RESTART IN MS-DOS MODE, and click OK.

THIS WWILL TAKE YOU TO THE C:\WINDOWS>prompt.

At the C:\WINDOWS>prompt type: CD  OPTIONS\CABS and
press enter.  
THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS>
prompt.

AT THE C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS>prompt type:
SETUP and press enter.

This will begin the setup of Windows 95/

WHEN asked choose :CUSTOM install,  DO NOT CHOOSE
TYPICAL, COMPACT, ETC.   CHOOSE CUSTOM.

When all asked what components to install select ALL of them
by unchecking and rechecking the BOXES, beside
ACCESSORIES, COMMUNICATIONS, MULTIMEDIA, AND EVERYTHING ELSE. THIS WILL GET ANY ALL FUTURE COMPONENTS THAT YOU MAY NEED INSTALLED ON YOUR
COMPUTER.


MAKE SURE TO HAVE YOUR WIN95 SERIAL NUMBER HANDY AS
YOU WILL BE ASKED FOR IT DURING THE INSTALL.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHRE TO FIND IT GO TO CONTROL
PANEL, TO SYSTEM, AND OPEN SYSTEM.  YOU WILL  SEE THE
NUMBER THERE.

If you have win95A installed on your machine then you will need a couple of things to make it work properly:
- MSDUN1.3 patch
- IE4.0 or higher
I have done extensive research on problems with DUN in windows95 and know that beacuse of differences in version numbers of DLL's this is the only sure way to get it to work. As for getting the files to your notebook follow satwa's suggetsion.

Hope this helps,

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM HERE IS THE SOLUTION THAT I FOIND TO WORK:

try replacing the Tapiaddr.dll file, and then remove and reinstall Dial-Up Networking.
You may want to just try replacing the Tapiaddr.dll since you have already reinstall DUN.

To replace the Tapiaddr.dll, use the following steps:
 
1. Rename the Tapiaddr.dll file to Tapiaddr.old, and then extract the Tapiaddr.dll file from your original Windows 95 media to the Windows\System folder.
This file will be in your .Cab files on your CD or floppy installation disks, (which ever). Probelem is I don't know which Cab file since I am running a different version Win95 on this machine. The article reports #11 for me so maybe its in that proximity for yours.
   
For information about how to extract files, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
 
      ARTICLE-ID: Q129605
      TITLE     : How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files
Again you may not have to repeat the following or the instructions on how to perform but I put it here in case you wanted to double check it;
2. Remove Dial-Up Networking, and then reinstall it. For information about how to do so, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
 
      ARTICLE-ID: Q181599
      TITLE     : How to Remove and Reinstall Dial-Up Networking and TCP/IP

Something else we could try is to rebuild the telephon.ini file. Will not hurt anything to do so as it may be corrupt.
 
1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files Or Folders.
 
2. In the Named box, type "telephon.ini" (without quotation marks), and then click Find Now.
 
3. Right-click any found Telephon.ini file, and then click Delete. Repeat this step until all Telephon.ini files are deleted.
 
4. Close the Find window.
 
5. Click Start, and then click Run.
 
6. In the Open box, type "tapiini.exe" (without quotation marks), and then click OK.

****
Windows 95 includes a telephony utility that can be run from Control Panel, but is not available by default. The telephony utility can be used for troubleshooting telephony-related issues.
   
To add the Telephony icon to Control Panel, rename Telephon.cp$ in the Windows\System folder to Telephon.cpl, and then restart Control Panel.
 
If you have a 16-bit Telephony application programming interface (TAPI) service provider already installed on your computer when you upgrade to Windows 95, you may experience problems with your 32-bit communication applications (such as HyperTerminal, Phone Dialer, and Dial-Up Networking).
 
You can use the Telephony icon in Control Panel to determine if you have a 16-bit TAPI service provider installed and to remove your 16-bit TAPI service provider(s) to eliminate problems with 32-bit communication programs. However, removing your 16-bit TAPI service provider may prevent 16-bit TAPI-aware programs from functioning properly.
If you are having TAPI-related problems, Microsoft recommends that you rebuild Telephon.ini using the steps outlined in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
 
   ARTICLE-ID: Q120221
   TITLE     : How to Rebuild the TELEPHON.INI File
 
If you add and run the Telephony utility, you will most likely see the following telephony driver installed:
 
   Unimodem Service Provider
 
This is the Windows 95 32-bit TAPI service provider and should not be removed.

Now the updates suggested herein this thread you may or may not have previously installed. However it is one of the best ways to Over-write possible corrupt files and register files to your system.
