Hey, Techie2000! (WinXP Pro)

    Steve Is that it, then?

    I need to instruct a person in Arizona on how to set up a dial-up connection in WinXP. Rather than me typing all the steps, do you know a good link that has all the skinny on doing this?

    I'd rather e-mail a link and the phone number and account info than spend a half-hour duplicating something someone else already has done.

    TIA!

    This site should work for you Stevent.

    Just ignore the stuff that specifies SBC's dial up ISP and substitue the correct ISP.

    Nevermind. Link doesn't work. But if they search for "Make internet connection" in Help and Support center it will give them a link to click which will tell them what to do...

    HOW TO: Configure a Connection to the Internet in Windows XP Professional

    Create a New Dial-Up Connection

    1. To start the Network Connections tool, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, and then click Create a new connection in the left pane.
    2. Click Set up my connection manually, click Next, click Connect using a Dial Up modem, and then click Next.
    3. Type a descriptive name for the Internet service provider (ISP) that you are using in this connection, and then click Next.
    4. Type the phone number that was provided to you by your ISP. Note that you may need to check with your ISP about long distance or access charges. Click Next.
    5. Choose whether you want this connection to be shared by all users (Anyone's use) of this computer, or only for yourself (My use only).
    6. In the next screen, type the logon information that was provided by your ISP to access their service.
    7. Click Next, and then click Finish to end the setup process.
