... are some subsidiary files called Dialer (including a file called
dialer.ini containing records of calls I must have made at some point in
the past). I looked for dialer on my Windows 98 CD and found nothing.
How do I access this utility?

If you want this in your Start menu, just create
a subfolder to hold a link to DIALER.EXEDon,
Thanks very much. So simple, I didn't even need to load my Windows 98
LarryHowever, now that it's working, I realize the phone dialer is not so
cool. After the call is made and I pick up the phone and start to talk,
the sound of the conversation also comes from the computer speaker
creating an echo effect.
I recently helped a relative who was not able to get online. I discovered
the phone number in dial up settings was wrong. I changed it via My
Computer/Dial up networking and was then able to connect. However when I
restarted the computer the number had reverted back. I then tried to change
it via IE/tools/internet options/connections/settings/properties but it
continued to revert back. How do I solve this problem? Is there any
difference between changing the number via IE/tools or My Computer/Dial up
networking?Create a new one.

involved was a Sound Blaster Audigy and the readme in the installation

contact Microsoft for their hotfix. I hope this is clear enough. :>
... , I'm using a connectoid from my W98SE
computer as I can't create it for my ISP in W2K.
Anyway, the question is about the password.
When I open the DUN icon, a wrong password is shown, the save password
box is checked, not greyed out. I delete the wrong entry, put in the
correct password, dial up OK. Later, shut down, the next time, again the
wrong password is shown.
Where in W2K is the DUN password kept so I can correct it to stay? I
assume it's the same as W98?
TIAI don't use W2K nor do most of the people here. In W98, it is stored in the
.pwl fileThanks, Ron. I posted here only as I used my W98 connectoid.
I created a username.pwl file containing my password in the Winnit (W2K
Windows) folder, no help as DUN still comes up with a incorrect password.
Is there a program that will allow me to make phone calls through my PC (NOT
via the internet), using microphone as input and obviously speakers as
output? I'm sure there will be something that allows you to do this as the
windows Dial-up program already lets you dial any phone number you like but
it won't me input using the microphone. I am running Windows 98SE.(NOT

Do you know of a way without me connecting?

Before you type your password, credit card number, etc.,
be sure there is no active keystroke logger (spyware) in your PC.I will describe how to get to the area where it can be changed, but
all directions are applicable to Win98SE. If XP, you're on your own.

... years since I've done this, forgot past data.
I created a DUN, can dial up, but the save password entry is greyed out, so
even after a sucessful connection, the next time I have to reenter data.
In the network setup screen, I had selected Windows logon as IIRC I always
did, but read in an old tip file that I need "Client for Microsoft
Networks" ... data. I have some data saved that says you
*must* have Client for MS Networks" selected to save password. I have
other data that says you *must* have MS Family Logon selected, IIRC, I
always used Windows logon. In this case I tried both of the above, each

everything I need to do this easily. I'm on dial-up and I make a simple DUN
connection, no ISP s/w to make a new connection, don't use the ICW. Only
install DUN and Phone for networking services. I dial-up ISP, I'm ok. Next I
run the complete setup for IE6-SP1, do my settings for IE and I install my

What could be going on.... have you ever heard of a problem like mine ??? I
don't recall ever reading anything like my problem being posted in this ng
before, and I've been reading it for many years!!
