How are you connecting- Dial-up, DSL, cable?
Which program is complaining about there being no username?

What's the exact message concerning Socks? You aren't behind a proxy server/firewall of any kind, are you?

user name

it just tells me to check it but the prolem is the user name i'vegone into preferences everywhere just an't figure what area i'm missing is there somewhere other than preferences i should check is there something outside of netscape that might be affecting this is there a mainpoint in the program i should be putting my name that i am missing or should i just go through everything and put in a user name? should my log on user name for botting up be the same as my user name for my isp. i am starting to tink better i have been very sick for the last two weeks thanks
