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 XP.

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.

  2. Double-click on 'Network Connections'.
  3. Choose 'Create a new connection'.
  4. A dialogue box will open welcoming you to the New Connection Wizard, click 'Next'.
