Dial-up modem - "Logging on to Network"

I had to re-format and re-install Win98SE. I have a dial-up internet account and an external modem.

Now when I dial my internet acocunt no. the dialog box says "verifying username.." and then it says "Logging on to Network.." - this take time but eventually does connect. I can't remember how to configure my 98 so it does not "Log on to ...", just straight away connect after verifying username & password".

You're most likely trying to establish a IPX and/or NetBEUI connection with your ISP or you are trying to log into their (nonexistent) NT network.

See KB article Q130073 for details to rectify this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q130073

Yes, I went to the dial-up - properties - server types and found that the "Log On to Network" was checked.
