Internet Connect

Internet Connect is primarily designed for people who connect to the Internet via dial-up modem, but it’s also handy for managing AirPort and Bluetooth connections. Here’s what you can accomplish with Internet Connect:

  • Click Connect to dial out using your current modem settings.

  • Once you’re hooked up, check the status display to confirm whether or not your modem successfully connected to your ISP—or if you’ve been disconnected.

  • You can also check your connection speed to find out if you’re really connected at 56 K (ha!).

  • A timer shows how long you’ve been connected.

  • Internet Connect keeps a log of your connection activity (choose Window→Connection Log). Reading this log is about as exciting as reading random entries from the White Pages. Nonetheless, if you’re having serious connection problems, it can be a useful troubleshooting tool.
