I am mostly posting this so it gets archived on Google, hopefully it\nmight help someone, some day.\n\nSBC Yahoo DSL, if you are a tech and have this service in your area\nyou might get called on someday to install this. The install CD\nSUCKS. It forces you, with no choice, to install tons of SBC Yahoo\ncrap. All pof which loads on startup. Fear not. Quickly choose\nExplore on the cd, look through the directory structure for a folder\ncalled " Enternet 300" or "Efficiant Networks" You can then install\njust the PPPoE dialer, quickly and painlessly connect to the SBC Yahoo\nService.\n\nNow I always miss the obvious. Throw me a impossible problem and I'll\nsolve it in 5 minutes. Give me an easy one and I'll stare at it for\nhours.\n\nI tried installing this SBC yahoo today, or to get the Enternet to\nconnect and it kept failing. Enternet gave a "tap" error, the SBC\ninstaller just locked up and didnt do anything. I screwed around for\nabout 45 minutes and then made the obvious realization that the\nMcaffee firewall, which I had installed first, was preventing the\ndialer from working properly, and causing the Installer to lock up. \nNotice it just stops doing anything, no error, no "not responding" it\njust sits there. I tried disabeling the firewall, no luck. I stopped\nit in the MMC services snap in, no luck. After I finally uninstalled\nit the PPPoE connection worked fine.\n\nI left the Mcaffee uninstalled and just went with ZoneAlarm.\n\nI've always had horrible luck with Norton Internet security too. That\nprogram does weird voodoo things to peoples computers. If it is\nmisconfigured it can be a nightmare to solve the issue. Note to techs\n: : Always Uninstall Norton Internet Security if you are having weird\nTCP/IP issues.\n\nO, whats that you say? You tried uninstalling Norton and it failed? \nYou tried again and it says that the uninstaller is already running?\nDownload this patch from Microsoft:\n[URL]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301[/URL]\nAnd now Norton will magically uninstall.\n\n\n\nI hope this helps someone, some day. Please post other small tips and\ntricks in this thread. Help someone today with Google.
