I am only guessing, based on two things:
(a) I can connect using my wife's HP6515, which has an utility to set the authentication method and actually defaults to PAP. I haven't worked out which file is the program and what registry entries it changes though.
(b) I have read in Whirlpool forums that VirginBroadband requires PAP and PAP only, and that using CHAP would give similar error messages (packet error) as I am getting.
(c) There were 614c users in the HP forum last year who had similar problems logging into their company networks, again same error, and they nailed the problem down to PAP. As that discussion occurred a long time ago, none of the participants appear to read the thread again and I cannot find out from them how they ended up fixing it.
(d) HP instant support admitted that the 612c would use CHAP but HP were not going to help to provide a tool to set it to PAP.
Not sure what else I could do!
