Error 678:

 The computer you are dialing is not answering please try again later.
 The most common cause for this is you are not dialing the right number, or your 
 area had 10 digit dialing and you need to include that in the number. If that is 
 not the problem, update your modem driver, put 3 comas behind the phone number,
 and call your modem manufac and get an ini string. If you are still having
 problems reinstall your modem, and call your ISP.

Error 659:

 The media.INI file refers to an unknown device name. These errors can
 occur if one or more of the DUN configuration files is missing or damaged.
 WARNING: If you have modified the original configuration files for the DUN in any
 way, cu should back up the files before proceeding. For example, if you modified
 the Modem.inf file to add information for an unsupported modem, or if you
 modified the Switch.inf file to create a script to connect to your Internet
 service provider (ISP), make sure to back up these files. To resolve this issue,
 replace the damaged files by removing and reinstalling DUN.

 The computer you have dialed does not respond to a network request this

 fixes  the problem 50% of the time, sometimes does not reinstall wsock32.dll (40kb).
 In that case you will get Error 645. If you still get 645 or 650 manually extract the
 files or call Microsoft.

Error 172:

 (no server assigned) the request is not seen on the network. This error
 message can occur if you are using both the Banyan VINES 32-bit network client
 and the Novell NetWare real-mode NetX client. The NetX client is being loaded
 before the Banyan 32-bit client. This causes Banyan VINES to try to operate over
 an IPXODI protocol stack, which it is not designed to do. To prevent this issue
 from occurring, do not use Banyan's 32-bit VINES client with Novell's real-mode
 NetX client.
