Windows 2000 Dial-up Networking Setup
To set up a new dialup networking connection, begin by
either right clicking on the My Network Places icon and choosing Properties
or by clicking on the Start button, going to Settings and then clicking
on Network and Dialup Connections.
This brings up the Network Connection Type box. Select the second option, "Dial-up to the Internet". Click Next.
Now displayed is the Welcome to the Internet Connection Wizard.
Here you will want to choose the last option, "I want to setup my Internet connection manually, or I want to connect through a local area network (LAN)." Click Next.
In this next box choose, "I connect through a phone line and modem." Click Next
In this box you are asked for the information about your connection.
You do not need to put anything into the Area code box
because you should be making a local phone call, not a long distance
one. Enter the local access phone number (see your documentation for
this number) in the Telephone number box.
This next box asks for your username and password.
This box asks you to give a name to the connection, name it ntcnet. Click Next.
This next box asks if you would like to set up an internet mail account now. At this time just mark no. Click Next.
This is the last box of the Internet Connection Wizard,
Completing the Internet Connection Wizard. Click Finish.
Back at the Network and Dialup Connections window, right
click on the NTCNet icon again and this time choose Create Shortcut
from the menu. That will give you a message stating that "windows
can not create a shortcut here, would you like the shortcut placed on
the desktop instead."
