DSL Installation Problems under WIN2K
Posted on 2003-11-18
Hi. I am having trouble establishing a network connection for my dsl.
1. OS is WIN2K 2. I have a laptop w/docking station, both with 3Com cards. 3. RASPPPPOE installation won't take. I need to configure a dsl connection for the internal card but can't find how to do it. When in the docking station, I see two connections-the first is network area connection LAN Unplugged. The second is LAN Enabled. Both connections have the same IP/DNS/WINS settings. At home, out of the docking station and away from our work network, I was going to reconfigure connection one, wiping out the IP/DNS/WINS but a) I thought this would interfere with settings back at work and b) I don't have an IP for my ISP so I don't know what to do. At home I have used my dsl with WIN XP's internal RASPPPOE and followed a ID protocol procedure, etc. but I don't see any way to do this in WIN2K. Ideas?
