1. Try re-entering the correct password. Remember that passwords are case sensitive.
2. Check your user name. A common mistake is that members enter their e-mail address here. You should enter only your user name without the "".
3. If you still can’t connect, try dialing in 3 or 4 times and then call the Help Desk, 204-1097. We might see error messages showing the cause of the failure.
