I'm currently using a dsl connection called sympatico. Its technical support refuse to help because they claim that they do no support win2k server. Right now, I have my PPPoE making the connection ok, but after it establish the connection, i still cannot surf the web, or any other interaction with the web. what should i do?? i'm sure it works, because i once set it up and working. But the next time i reboot and it won't work. must be something to do with the settings in network? pls helps, thanks!

300 points?  I see "0" points.

Here's a tip.  DON'T tell the clowns at Sympatico that you are using W2K Server.  The RAS setup is identical between W2K Server and W2K PRO.  Tell them you are using W2K Pro and force them to help.  These idiots are like trained monkeys but they are good at identifying any non-standard item and pointing their corporate finger at that.  In this case it's irrelevant...

Hi,

I had DSL and Win2K with Ma Bell in Toronto.
I can tell you i could always log on
but it took 10 > 20 tries before my home page opens. Sympatico uses EnterNet 300 1.4
software (AccessManger)it does not
support Win2k well.I switch to RASPPPoE it worked perfectly.http://user.cs.tu-berlin.de/~normanb/#Download

jhance I have to agree with you.. Any so called IT people doing phone support for $7.50 an hour 9Canadian on top of it) has to suck bigtime by default ;)..

foxhound - Uninstall access manager.. Uninstall the NIC.. There is some kind of binding issue with the virtual adaptor that access manager talks to....
-Re-install the NIC, get the latest access manager.. & apply the tcp MTU modifications.... http://www.speedguide.net/Cable_modems/cable_reg_win2k.shtml

foxhound I'm in Montreal.. I know at least 3 people (co-workers & friends) running access manager with a sympatico dsl account on 2000 server....They're hosting RRAS NAT, exchange, terminal server, Outlook web access... you name it...
-The virtual interface created by access manager is the demand dial interface in rras...
-It will work if you clean up whatever you've done first & get a fresh start...

my 2c
I dont have DSL but my cable/dsl router has pp0e. I have a friend that was having problems with his dsl and he bought one of the LinkSys 4 port router. He now is always connected and the router is doing the connecting. With that comment I dont know how win2k could be the culprit.
hope it helps
