Back to Support

On most Microsoft Windows operating systems you should be able to use the automatic dial-up installation tool on the home page, however this guide shows you how to configure your settings manually on Windows ME.

Please note, this guide only covers configuring the dialup connection itself. It does not provide information on installation and setup of your modem hardware. For assistance with this please contact either your modem or PC manufacturer.

  1. Click the Windows Start menu, select 'Settings', then select 'Dial-up Networking'.
  2. Double click the 'Make New Connection' icon.
  3. A dialogue box (as shown below) will open which will welcome you to the Network Connection Wizard, click 'next'.

  3. In 'Dial-up Networking' double click on the connection just created (it will be given the name assigned in step 4 above). The 'Connect To' dialup box will be displayed (as shown below).
