NOTE: This could cause a dialing error if checked. If you hear an operator's voice when dialing your modem, this may be the problem. Also, this setting is often the cause of "not answering" errors or busy signals.
"Log on to network" causes the connection to attempt to sign on to a Microsoft network. This setting can cause problems during authentication.
"Enable software compression" causes the connection to attempt to use the PPP Compression Control Protocol (CCP), which many internet providers (CNM included) does not support. This can cause many errors during authentication, and is also the cause of many user's problems with being disconnected while online. CCP works independently of modem compression.
NOTE: Sometimes, it is helpful to specify the name server addresses if you are having trouble reaching to sites once online. For information on how to do this, click here.
