PPP error 718 is a problem caused by your PC being unable to connect to a dial-up connection that you may have on your system. The actual “PPP” error stands for “Point-to-Point Protocol” and basically means that your computer has a problem with the way it connects to the other system. Fixing this error is easy if you are able to repair the various damaged parts that often cause it.
Error 718 usually looks like this:
Error 718: The computer you are connecting to cannot establish a dial-up connection. Please check your password and try again.
If you see this error, it usually means that your computer won’t be able to connect to the server/internet/other pc you want. If you’re having this problem, it usually means that your system has driver errors, mistyped data, or sign-in issues.
To fix PPP error 718, you first need to check your internet connection and see if it works. To do this, open a web browser and try to connect to Google, looking for something random if you do. This will let you see if your connection is able to load a new page, and if it can… it means you should proceed to the next step. If your internet can’t read the internet, you should contact your internet company for help.
After testing your internet connection, you should think about updating the modem driver for your PC. The Modem is what allows your computer to “talk” to the Internet, and is vital for your PC to function properly. It often happens that the driver for this hardware component is outdated or damaged, therefore it is essential to update it to the latest version.
Finally, you should then look into using a program called “registry cleaner” to fix the various errors and files Windows may have within the registry database. The registry is a central storage facility that keeps everything from your latest emails, desktop wallpaper and stored login details safe. It is a vital part of your computer that is continuously used by all the software, files and processes that your computer requires to function every day. Unfortunately, the registry database is used so much that it is continually saved incorrectly, causing it to run extremely slowly and with many errors. To make sure this isn’t a problem, it’s important that you know how to use a “registry cleaner” tool to fix errors in it.
