3. Go into your Dial-up Networking folder (My computer --> dial-up networking), and right click on the Internet connection you use.

4. Select Properties.

5. Click on the Server Types button.

6. Check "Log onto Network" (so this should have a check-mark)

7. Click to clear the Require Encrypted Password check box. (this should NOT have a check-mark)

Then click OK to get all of the way out of the configuration screens and Reboot your computer

If that doesnt work........
