Using XP home sp1, p4 2.6, FX5600ultra, 512 pc3200. Here's where the problem probably is. The install instructions say to use 'Local Area Connection 1'. This is disabled by advice of my ISP as I am on ADSL (3Mbps). The install software for the USB modem asks that LAC1 be disabled.
I had to create a new connection which is called 'ADSL' (Snazzy and inventive, huh?) that uses PPPoE. I tried the installing PW through the ADSL connection and it wont let me connect. I uninstalled and retried through LAC1 with no luck.
Here is the ProtoWall Tutorial I used. This is a little over my head and I am now lost.
