Installing BT Broadband

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've have recently updated to Windows XP Pro (from Win 98 se/Win 2000 pro dual boot) and am trying to install
BT Broadband (Business anytime - as it's paid for by my company)
on Windows XP.
I had loads of jip trying to install this previous on Windows 2000 (no probs on 98) and the same on XP.
It only seems to install the usb modem but doesn't give me the option to setup the 'dialler' during setup. You can't setup the dialler manually cos it's ASL and not like a 56k dial-up modem with a phone number.
I've tried the drivers from the net as well as the CDROM, it's a right pain and I can't remember how I managed it in the end of win 2000 pro.
(I supposed to be an IT Support Engineer by the way!)
Anyone ran into this problem?
Cheers!

    No. But you should not need a dialler. ADSL is always on.
