Having a similar problem using Vista Ultimate. On my system, I have a PCI
network adapter and a onboard one.
After booting up, my PPPoE connection is set to dial automatically. At
first, it went just fine but after a while(nothing in particular happened),
it just wouldn't log me in, just kept hanging at the "vefying username and
password"(or other intermediat dialog box).
I tried connecting the LAN cable to my onboard network adapter, redialed
manually the connection, and everything went smooth.
After a reboot, the same thing happened, it wouldn't dial the connection.
Re-started the "process", re-plugged the cable into my PCI network adapter,
redialed, and it worked...and so on and on and on...
This never happened under XP.
Any suggestions ?
