Guys, I'm trying to connect to the internet on bridge mode in Vista, but i'm unable to do so. The dialer would dial the connection, verify the user id and password, but won't register the computer on the network. It's stuck there and my net doesn't work. Even in the beta version, it was the same, but once it reached the stage "registering your computer on the network" i was able to browse, but the connection won't go to the system tray like in XP. So I am having to use PPPoE mode, and you all know how many limitations are there in that. :(Can anyone help???TIA.

no prob with mtnl servers, PAP authentication is a standard, wich should be implemented by MS/Vista . They are not implementing the standard properly it seems, thats why the problem.
