New modem connection problems

hello everyone
Following previous advise I have a new modem so that it will work with SP2. It is a Dynamode M_ADSL_USB_CW and set up was trouble free.
The problem is that when connecting to it gets so far and then gives a 720 error. I would appreciate your help in solving this.
It must be the connection details somewhere, as the old modem on XP (without any service packs) works just fine.

New modem connection problems

Error 720: No PPP control protocols configured.

Check your "Network Connections" properties.

Control panel>Network Connections>Dial up: Right click your modem and select "properties" >Click "Networking" tab and make sure TCP/IP is present and ticked. Also make sure "Type of dial-up server I am calling" is set to "PPP"

If this doesn't work, maybe running the "network setup wizard" could help?

*EDIT* BTW I just did a search or 2 for updated drivers for your modem, and came up with pretty much nought! :? Dynamode own site has your model "greyed out". Is it disscontinued? dunno. :?
