Troubleshooting

AS you’ve learned in this chapter, connecting while you’re on the road is often quite complex, and prone to numerous problems. Many of these problems have to do with how your dial-up settings are configured. You may have to adjust the dialing string by adding numbers (9 to access an outside line, for example) or reconfiguring various settings (pulse dialing to tone dialing, for example—or turning off dial tone recognition).

You may also run into problems obtaining and using local access numbers for your new location. Some areas require dialing a 1 in front of the number, even if it’s within the same area code. In addition, it’s not always easy to tell which of the numbers your ISP suggests is best for your particular location. Some access numbers might provide faster connections than others, and you’ll only find out by trial and error.
