Chapter 26. Establishing a Dial-Up Inter... > Installing and Configuring a Modem

Installing and Configuring a Modem

There are two obvious prerequisites to any dial-up connection: You need a modem (or another type of connecting device, such as an ISDN adapter), and you need a phone line. If you haven't set up a modem previously, the Internet Connection Wizard includes a series of steps that automatically install the correct drivers and configure your modem. You can also use the Modems option in Control Panel to add a new modem or to configure an existing one.

Although most dial-up connections use only one modem at a time, you can install multiple communication devices. The system depicted in Figure 26.3, for example, includes an analog modem and an ISDN adapter. Note, however, that you can assign only one device to each Dial-Up Networking connection.
