I am using Windows XP Professional on my Acer TravelMate laptop with a
built in modem.  The modem driver is installed and when I test the
modem, it is responding properly.  I tried to create a new network
connection using the network connection wizard -> Connect to the
Internet -> Set up my connection manually.  When I click Next here,
the "Connect using a dial-up modem" and "Connect using a broadband
connection that requires a user name and password" options are
disabled (greyed out).  Do anyone know why these options are
disabled?  I need to select "Connect using a dial-up modem".  Thanks
for any help in advance.
