PPP cant connect to ISP

PPP cant connect to ISP

PPP cant connect to ISP

Im so frustrated - Ive been on the phone with Net Zero tech support for hours - they say its a "windows problem" and they will need someone from Microsoft to be on the phone line too!   -  error 720 PPP  Now what do I do??  My XP works fine.  Ive re-installed it 2x. - I swapped out the motherboard and now I cant connect - ive tried 2 different modems - now what?   thanks

RE: PPP cant connect to ISP

You say you've reinstalled your OS twice, as in format and reinstall and it still doesnt work? Also 2 different modems and a new motherboard.

Thats odd, because a 720 shows a problem with your local machine 90% of the time its an OS issue, After all you've done it should be working.

Has it ever worked? If so, whats changed since it last worked, new software on your computer? Have you tried disabling your Antivirus and Firewall.

RE: PPP cant connect to ISP

I have the same problem with my dialup.  I'm also using Windows XP.  I've tried unistalling and reinstalling my modem driver.  I've tried updating my driver, but still get the same 720 error.  I have the Lucent win modem.  I read somewhere that reinstalling Windows XP and SP2 seperate may solve the problem, but I'm hoping that would be my last option.  

Any ideas?
