How to establish a Dial-Up connection
Once you have set up your Dial-Up Connection you are left there, with a connection that's set up but how do you actually connect to the Internet? this tutorial will walk you through the last steps to establishing a connection using your dial-up connection.
Double Click on the dialup connecting shortcut on your desktop
I don't have a desktop shortcut icon
Username is correct
Password is correct
Phone number is correct
Check "Save this username and password for the following users"
Check "Me Only"
This is an optional step if you are sharing the computer or you don't want to save your username and password for connection then UN-check this box, this is purely a means of convenience.
If you have changed the phone number you will be presented with the below dialog box, if you are now sure the number is correct click Yes.
If you did not receive this its because you did not change the phone number which is fine if it was correct all ready.
Once you have Clicked Dial you will see a small dialog box appear showing you the steps of the connection process, which should end in you being connected to the Internet.
If this fails Please Note down the error number/message that you receive as you can enter this into google to hopefully find a solution to your problem
