Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Adding a dialup connection

\015 I have a Toshiba Stellite L305D-S5934, with Windows Vista (Home Premium (with Service Pack 1)\015\012\015\012I tried adding a dialup connection and got as far as entering the phone number, username and password and that's as good as it got! Attempting to check the ''Allow other people to use this connection'' gave an ''Access is denied'' message! On attempting to complete the exercise, I got ''The wizard cannot create the connection'' So much for the wizard in Windows Vista! Can someone out there please help!!\015\012\015\012Many Thanks\015

Answers :

I think you might need to be on an account with administrative rights to complete that kind of change on a Vista system...Make sure you are logged on that way to begin with if possible...
\015\012When you don't have administrative rights, you can't set up programs that affect other users.
\015\012Here is a troubleshooter that might help you resolve this Vista network connections
