If you still happen to have the "Easy Internet Sign-up" icon (99% chance it can be found here-> Start>ControlPannel>Add/Remove>"Easy Internet Signup") click on support info and when it is opened it automatically creates what you are looking for.

An easier way it is probally found (or created from) is in Schedualed tasks Change the time it is schedualed to run and it should just pop up on your screen. Hope that helps if your on an XP system.

1. The article [Q305549] explains step-by-step of how to configure a connection to the Internet using the Network Connections tool in Control Panel to establish connectivity between your computer and the Internet, a network, or another computer.

2. The article [Q813444] contains information and procedures used to troubleshoot situations where you cannot connect to SSL Secured (128-Bit) Web sites (https://).

3. The article [Q329441] explains that if you install Service Pack 1 (SP1) and then use the System Restore feature to restore Windows to a state before the installation of the service pack, you may experience the following symptoms:

a. You cannot create a remote access or Dial-Up Networking connection. All items on the "Network Connection" page of the New Connection Wizard are unavailable (dimmed).

b. The Network Connections folder is empty.

c. The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) services do not start because of a dependency failure.

4. Please note that just above the text editor (where you enter a question on the forum) is a paragraph stating that if you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution. Specifically what hardware is used and means of accessing the Internet.

I am assuming that as you have posted in Windows XP that that is what you are using. The Lan Icon shows as you either have onboard LAN or installed LAN card. To make a new Dial Up connection go to, Connect To/Show all connections, in the left pannel select Create a new connection and follow the prompts in the Wizard, once you have created the connection you will have the icon. You will not be able to create a connection if you do not have a Dial Up Modem.
Hope this helps
Mathew

You can also set up your dial up connection from the internet explorer icon, right click on it, and select properties, then the connections tab, then click the upper box (setup), which you will get the common icw to configure your dial up.
