TCP/IP error 738
TCP/IP error 738
mmhh i kept getting that error everytime i try to connect to my isp under windows 2000, but i fix it when i unclick "Negotiate Multi-Link for Single Link Connections" or manually put an ip address.
whats with that? i clicked back the Negotiate MUlti-Link option and was able to connect back again without putting in an ip address!
i dunno much about networking and stuff so haha, i'm ignorant at this.
Here's what I found at MSKB

When you use a dial-up connection to connect to your Internet service provider (ISP), you may receive the following error message:
Check networking protocol connections...
TCP/IP CP reported CP Error 738: The server did not assign an address.
This behavior can occur if the Negotiate multi-link for single link connection option is enabled for the dial-up connection.
To resolve this issue:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.
Right-click the connection, and then click Properties.
Click the Networking tab.
In the Type of dial-up server I am calling box, click PPP: Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Internet.
Click to clear the Negotiate multi-link for single link connections check box.
Click OK, and then click OK.
This issue occurs because the client and server configurations are not compatible.
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys and Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe.
