Making and Ending a Dial-Up Connection

If you use a dial-up connection with an analog modem or ISDN line, after you've set up an icon for your ISP, making the connection is a snap:

  1. Select the connection icon in Network and Dial-Up Connections.

  2. When Windows displays a connection dialog box (see Figure 11.13), enter the login name and password assigned by your ISP. Check Save Password so that you won't need to retype it every time you dial.

    Note

    If you have not chosen to have Windows prompt you for the phone number, the dialog will appear differently than what is shown in Figure 11.13. If you select Prompt for Phone Number in the properties sheet for your connection, the lower half of the dialog showing Dial, Dial From, and Dialing Rules will not appear.


    Figure 11.13. When you want to initiate a dial-up connection, enter your user ID and password, and check Save Password to simplify connecting in the future.

  3. Check that the phone number is correct, including area code and any required prefix numbers. You might need to correct your current location (Dialing From) and/or the Dialing Rules if the prefix or area code isn't correct.

  4. Select Dial to make the connection.
