    "Doesn't work with software modems??"

    November 19, 2002

    Version: Windows 95 Dial-Up Networking Upgrade 1.4

    Summary

    Unfortunately, I'm stuck with a Win95 computer at work. Because it's an old system, it also has a software-based modem (no, we're not even on a network or LAN... we use dial-up connections!)... DUN 1.4 doesn't seem to work with these. I'm writing this from my Windows 2000 computer because my Windows 95 computer will dial up, but it doesn't connect to any web pages now. Thanks, Microsoft, for giving us yet another stable update to your now unsupported operating system!! I don't believe in MS-bashing, but with every passing moment, I am getting more and more irritated with them.

    "Took Some Know-How..."

    May 06, 2002

    Version: Windows 95 Dial-Up Networking Upgrade 1.4

    Summary

    I, too, had a bumpy start with DUN 1.4 at first.
    But once I dug into what it does/how it works, I noticed it was having an "issue" with what AOL/JUNO/NetZero had dun to my DUN.
    First I ran ScanDisk Thorough with the switches set to "Delete Cross-Linked Files" & "Free Lost File Fragments" with ALL boxes "checked". Afterwards, I ran the latest version of RegClean ( http://download.com.com/3000-2094-881470.html?tag=lst-0-1 ). Works Great! No problems! You may have to re-install your proprietary ISP (like the ones mentioned earlier), but the new 1.4 "works" with these. Tested it with Juno 4.0 which now runs better.
    Footnote: MS DUN 1.4 is designed for use with REAL modems and NOT SOFT modems that require OS/software to operate. People with soft modems may have problems with this program and should be running Windows 98 SE anyway. Hope this helps...

    "1.4 crashed & ruin my DUN connections"

    April 03, 2002

    Version: Windows 95 Dial-Up Networking Upgrade 1.4

    Summary

    I used CNET's Catchup Monday. It said that I should upgrade to 1.4. I sent a email to my ISPs technical support about it. They said it wasn't any problem. Yes, yes, I know I should have backed up my hard drive, but my tape drive is broken. In the past, I had no problems with the DUN upgrades. So, I installed this. I immediately faced problems. I couldn't login properly. I couldn't load my home page. I couldn't access Messenger. I couldn't use Communicator 4.72 at all. So, I went to the readme.file. It said that if I uninstalled 1.4 all of DUN would be uninstalled. I really didn't want that, but I couldn't connect to the Net. I found my 1.2 download. So, I uninstalled 1.4 and installed 1.2. Well, that didn't work. I went into Add/Remove to try to install DUN. I pulled out my Packard-Bell CD master disk and tried to install DUN. Well, according to Windows 95, I was missing a whole bunch of files, like MSDUN.CAB. I'm at the library, because I don't know what to do. I called up a repair place and they claim it would be $65- to look at the machine and then 1-1/2 hours to fix it. I find it hard to believe it would take that time to reinstall DUN. I would appreciate any advice from anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area. My number is 510-528-0654.

    This dial up 1.4 was my lifesaver, because I had real problems triying to connect my computer on the web, but with this , i just that. It is worthy at all. I recommend to anyone who has win95.

    "And then man created fire.."

    October 31, 2001

    Version: Windows 95 Dial-Up Networking Upgrade 1.4

    Summary

    I'm just curious, for all of you whom are undoubtedly reading this from your netzero account, or perhaps a "borrowed" ISP account from a friend.. why are you so cheap? Why? Why are you running an operating system that's roughly 7-8 years old? For the love of god... I hate you all..

    Summary

    My dial-up was just fine until I downloaded this garbage! Now, my connection constantly goes stale and the only way to get a good connection again is to reboot. Do NOT download this junk!
