I had a dial up internet connection and Yahoo Messenger, ICQ and MSN Messenger installed which were working properly.

I changed my internet connection from dial up to permanent LAN connection. But only Internet Explorer could detect the connection and although I changed the connection settings preferences to reflect the new connection in my software they are unable to connect to internet.

I tried to uninstall these and install them again, now only yahoo messenger detects the connection but it can not set up voice and others can not connect to internet

I don't know for MSN messenger, but ICQ has a setting where you have to set up whether you are using Dial-Up or LAN (inside ICQ itself, that is). So if you did not change this setting, it won't recognize the connection.
