If you are having problems trying to get DUN to remember your password and you find the option grayed out then there are a few things you can try.
1. Make sure you have Client for Microsoft Networks installed on your system. Control Panel / Networking / Add / Client / Microsoft / Microsoft Networking.
2. Your Windows startup is configured to ask for a password and you are hitting the esc key when the logon box is displayed.
3. You have a corrupted password file. Do a search for *.pwl in the Windows folder and rename all the files you find. Note - this will force you to rebuild your password files from scratch.
4. Check the Registry:
Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE). Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net. If you see autologon (on the right side) with a value of "00 00 00 00", double-click on it, and change the value to "01 00 00 00 00". Exit RegEdit and restart the PC.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net]
Data Type: REG_DWORD
