Connect to what, exactly?  Are you using a broadband modem?  These are very outdated now, you would be better off getting a router and Plusnet will give you a free one.

Re: connection failed with error 651

That sort of thing ( sorry "scam") really  gets me angry. It seems to be a U.S.A, practice. If especially I see a dot.com address with free download, I avoid. Worse still some may be misnamed as Freeware downloads.

Re: connection failed with error 651

If you have a router then your internet connection is always on.  You don't have to try to connect to the internet, if the router is connected to the internet and you are connected to the router then you are connected.
The error you have encountered seems to be something to do with a dial-up modem, so perhaps your computer is not trying to connect in the right way.  Open up Internet Options, either from Control Panel or from the bottom of the Tools menu in Internet Explorer.  Click on the 'Connections' tab and make sure 'Never dial a connection' is selected.  Whilst you are about it, click the 'LAN settings' button and make sure the option to use a proxy server is NOT selected.

Re: connection failed with error 651

Okay, my best guess based on what I can glean from this and your other thread, is that you haven't got a proper connection via your router so your computer then tries to use a modem to connect to the internet because you haven't got 'Never dial a connection' set in your Internet Options.  Because the modem isn't connected you then get a time-out error, which is what error 651 seems to be.

Re: connection failed with error 651

You're welcome. Just to let the others know, the router still had the VCI & VPI settings from the old provider, as well as having other modems configured in the connections tab in internet options.
