I do not know if this would relate to my other Topic or not. While in the Manage Network Connections section in the Network and Sharing Center, I saw WAN Miniport (ATW) under device name for the Dial Up Connection. When I Right clicked it, then left clicked on properties,Windows asked for permission to continue, I left clicked on continue. That brought up a pop-up showing the Internet 1 properties. It showed Removed WAN Miniport (ATW) (IRDA8-0) as what I was using to connect to the internet.
Now I left clicked on the options window. Which brought up the dialing options. Under the Dialing options, there are 4 boxes with these options: "Display progress while connecting", "Prompt for name and password,certificate,etc." , "Include Windows logon domain" , "Prompt for phone number".
My first Question is: what should I do with these options? Mark them or leave them blank?
Next, At the bottom of the pop-up we have a box that has "PPP Settings". When I left click on that, another pop-up comes up, with three boxes with these options: "Enable LCP extensions" , "Enable software compression" , "Negotiate multi-link for single-link connections"
Now my next question is: What should I do with these options here? Mark them or leave them blank?
Next I left clicked on the Networking window. That window says at the top: "this connection uses the following items:". There are 5 boxes with the following options:
"Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" , "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" , "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Network" , "QoS Packet Scheduler" , "Client for Microsoft Networks". The "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and "QoS Packet Scheduler" is checked.
Now my other question is: What should I do about these options here? Mark the rest of them? or Leave them blank?
Also If anybody has any information on what this stuff does or how it may affect my computer. Please post a response. Also, if you know what screens I am talking about, could you please help me with setting up the other stuff too.
