Chapter 26. Establishing a Dial-Up Inter... > Connecting to the Internet

Connecting to the Internet

After you've created a Dial-Up Networking icon that contains your connection settings, you can establish a connection by using any of these three methods:

  • Open the Dial-Up Networking folder and use that icon to manually connect to the Internet. This option gives you maximum control over when and how you connect to the Internet.

  • Set up Internet Explorer to automatically open a Dial-Up Networking connection whenever you attempt to access a Web page. By default, this option requires you to respond to a confirmation dialog box before actually dialing. This option is appropriate if you use a single line for voice and data calls.

  • Use advanced settings in the Dial-Up Networking folder to make a hands-free connection that doesn't require confirmation from you whenever you attempt to access any Internet resource. This option is best if you have a dedicated data line and don't want any interruptions from Windows.
