Connecting your Windows 95/98 computer to

Windows 95/98 has a feature called Dial-Up Networking which allows you to establish a PPP connection with an Internet Service Provider. Once the connection is established, you can use just about any standard Internet software, whether it's a browser, email program, game, chat client, or something else.

Here are step-by-step instructions for setting up Dial-Up Networking to work with (This procedure may require your Windows 95/98 disks, so it is a good idea to have them at hand):

  1. Check to see if you have Dial-Up Networking installed. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel. Double-click on Add/Remove Programs. Click on the "Windows Setup" tab. Double-click on "Communications". You should see Dial-Up Networking listed. If it is not checked, check it. (Do not change any other settings; it's OK if they don't match what we show here.) Click OK until you are back to the Control Panel. If Dial-Up Networking was not already installed, Windows will copy some files from your Windows 95/98 CD or disks. Close control panel.

  2. Add a Dial-Up Networking entry for Double-click the icon on your Windows 95/98 Desktop labelled "My Computer". It will open up a window listing the contents. One of the items listed should be "Dial-Up Networking". Double-click on it. This will open another window, which will have an icon in it called "Make New Connection". Double-click on this icon, and enter "" as the name of the service you wish to set up. Click Next. Put in our telephone number (836-6196), and click Next. (if you are dialing from your default location you will not need the 901 area code. If you are dialing from a location other than your default location, enter the area code (901)). Also verify at this point that the selected modem is the one you wish to use. If no modem is present you will need to install one before you will be able to establish a connection. Click Finish.

  3. Configure the settings for Right-click on the icon. Click on Properties. This opens up a properties window for Click on Server Type. Type of Dial-Up Server is "PPP: Windows 95/98, Windows NT 3.5, Internet". "TCP/IP" should be checked. All other options on this screen should NOT be checked. Click on TCP/IP Settings. Verify that the Server assigned IP addresses, and Server assigned name server addresses selections are checked. (These are the default settings). Click OK three times.

  4. Restart your computer and try it out. At this point you should be ready to go. If you haven't already done so, install your browser software. When you start your browser, Dial-Up Networking should automatically kick in and ask for your username and password. Fill in your username and password. Click on save password if desired. Verify that the phone number and modem are correct for your location and hardware configuration. Click OK.
