Earthlink tech support fails

Thursday my wife and I celebrated our tenth year of marriage. Friday we stayed for the weekend at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel.
I was trying to dial-up to Earthlink from the hotel, but couldn’t, so I called Earthlink’s tech support for help. As I suspected – they were of no help
So I fiddle around a bit and found my own solution. The solution basically was to “un-check” LCP extensions in the dial-up networking section.
