xp pro and PPPoE

Posted: 12-23-2003, 10:08 PM
Hi,

I updated my XP Home edition to XP Professional. I am
unable to create a new Internet connection. The "Connect
using a broadband connection that requires a user name and
password" option in the New Connection Wizard is
unavailable. I tried two methods from KB 320558, but it
did not help.

Are there any other resolutions to this problem?

Thanks for the help.
Igor

================================================== =========
You did an upgrade from an XP Pro cdrom that did not include
Service Pack 1 and the previous installation of XP Home did include SP1.
When you did that upgrade, you removed SP1 and all XP Critical Updates
including the one that deals with the RPC vulnerability exploited by the
MSBLASTER worm and its variants. Before you connect to
the Internet, make sure you are behind a router with a firewall
or have a functioning third-party firewall or have the XP ICF
enabled. Then you will need to immediately go to the Windows
Update site and get all Service Packs (SP1A) and critical updates
installed. SP1A will need to be installed separately and be sure
to reboot before going back for the rest of the critical updates.
