Connecting to a Network Using a Modem

If you have a modem installed on your computer, you can use the New Connection Wizard to set up a dial-up connection to another computer or a network. Connecting to another computer or a network is useful when you need access to information stored on another computer or a network. You only need to set up a dial-up connection to a computer or a network once. After you set up the connection using the New Connection Wizard, you can use the connection icon in the Connection window or the Connect To submenu on the Start menu to establish a dial-up connection. When you are connected, Windows displays a connection icon in the notification area on the taskbar. You can point to the icon to display information about the connection or right-click the icon to perform tasks.

Create a Dial-Up Connection

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click New Connection Wizard.

Click Next to continue.

Click the Connect To The Network At My Workplace option, and then click Next.

Click the Dial-Up Connection option, and then click Next.

Type a name for the connection, and then click Next.

Type the phone number for calling the network, and then click Next.

Click Finish.
