Managing Dial-Up Networking Connections

With the Dial-Up Networking capabilities of Windows Me, you can access other computers, a LAN, or the Web through an Internet service provider (ISP). This section covers the notebook-specific techniques of setting up locations, connecting to a remote system, accessing ISPs, and autodialing.

Despite the fact that Dial-Up Networking via modem is far slower than using a network card in the office for accessing the Internet or office network, it's still useful. Most hotels around the country still don't offer a broadband connection, and you also might find yourself connecting from home (which might be a local call) or from a hotel (almost always a long-distance call) with your office or your ISP. If your office allows you to access your computer via modem, you're never without your documents. And, with the growth of online backup, you can save your files to a virtual drive on the Internet if you forgot to buy an overpriced box of floppies at the airport gift shop before you caught your flight.
