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.

Double-click on the Make New Connection icon.
This will bring up the Welcome to the Network Connection Wizard. Click Next.

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.
Once you have the number typed in uncheck the box, "Use area code and dialing properties"
Click Next.

This next box asks for your username and password.
Usernames and Passwords are case sensitive, make sure that you put your password in correctly.
Click Next.

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."
Answer yes and then close the window. You will now see a shortcut on your desktop for your dialup to NTCNet.
