Aside from unchecking "Log on to network," "IPX/SPX," and "NetBEUI" from
the Dial-Up Networking Connection profile, see the following page:

Also, make sure that you have the following settings in:
Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Network --> TCP/IP Properties -->
DNS Config: DISable DNS (all entries should be blank)
IP Address: Server assigned
Gateway: empty

A lot of ISPs have their customers set DNS info in the above area, but for
dial-up PPP connections, it's not supposed to go in there. Having settings
in these areas will cause problems--especially if the customer has multiple
ISPs or changes to a different ISP...
