First, you must re-boot your computer and modem

  1. Save all unsaved work and close all programs.
  2. Click on the Windows Start button select Shut Down.
  3. Check the circle next to Restart and click OK.
  4. If you have an external modem, turn its power off then on. If there is no on/off switch on the modem, you may have to unplug the modem's power supply.
  5. Once the computer has finished booting up, retry your NetZero connection.
  6. If you still receive this error message, please follow the instructions below to configure Windows network components for DUN and modify your system settings.

Configuring the Windows Network Components for Dial-Up-Networking

The following instructions are for those systems that are not on a Local Area Network (LAN). If you are on a LAN and follow these directions, you may create a conflict that will disrupt your computer's connection to your LAN. Please contact your network administrator for assistance before you continue making any changes to the system configuration.

  1. Click on the Windows Start button, point to Settings and select Control Panel.
  1. Double-click the Network icon.

    IMPORTANT!
    Before making any changes to your Network settings, please ensure that you have your Windows CD.
  1. What you will find listed under the Configuration tab will depend on your version of Windows. NetZero requires three network components total, but you may have more or less listed. The three that are required are:
    • Client for Microsoft Networks
    • Dial-Up Adapter
    • TCP/IP
    Note: You may see TCP/IP->Dial-up Adapter grouped together.

If Client for Microsoft Networks is not listed, you will need to add it:

  1. Click on the Add button.
  1. Select Client.
  2. Click on the Add button.
  1. Under Manufacturers, select Microsoft.
  2. Under Network Clients, select Client for Microsoft Networks.
  3. Click OK.

    Note: This may automatically add all three components.

If Dial-Up Adapter is not listed, you will need to add it:

  1. Click on the Add button.
  1. Select Adapter.
  2. Click on the Add button.
  1. Under Manufacturers, select Microsoft.
  2. Under Network Adapters, select Dial-Up Adapter.
  3. Click OK.

If TCP/IP is not listed, you will need to add it:

  1. Click on the Add button.
  1. Select Protocol.
  2. Click on the Add button.
  1. Under Manufacturers, select Microsoft.
  2. Under Network Protocols, select TCP/IP.
  3. Click OK.

Once you have confirmed that the three required Network components are installed, check your network settings to ensure that TCP/IP is correctly configured.

Check Network Settings

    Note: In the Primary Network Logon drop-down menu, ensure that Client for Microsoft Networks is selected.
  1. Double-click TCP/IP->Dial-Up Adapter.

    Note: If you get a TCP/IP Properties Information window, click OK.
  1. Ensure that only the circle next to Obtain an IP address automatically is checked.
  2. Select the WINS Configuration tab.
  1. Ensure that only the circle next to Disable WINS Resolution is checked.
  2. Click OK. You will be prompted to re-boot your computer.
  3. Click OK.

Retry the NetZero connection.
