PPPoE on repaired XP pro
Posted on 2004-04-06
We all do foolish things... me I do it very often.
I had to do a repair to my XP PRO installation. Before that I was using SBC yahoo dsl just fine.
after the repair.. no worky worky.
I uninstalled the sbc/yahoo package and reinstalled... nothing
I connect the DSL modem to my laptop and it works fine, I am using it now
I go to network places
create a new connection
connect to the internet
set-up connection manually
This is where I guess I would choose to 'connect using a broadband using DSL....as PPPoE'
but this option is greyed out... can not select it. The only one available is 'always on'
I tried a fix recommended to me by NIKE.... and now I have dents in the case but still no internet access.
please help a lonely bald man ...
