You have to buy a DSL modem that is meant for Broadband only. a dial up modem will not work for broadband. your service provider will be giving you a DSL modem for some charges.

How do i use my nokia c3 as a modem to connect to the internet


Before you want to use handphone as modem, you need to know your service provider(ex maxis).
For maxis (example), it have many chosen for browse internet through pc using handphone as modem. First through hot ticket and second through normal prepaid. Actually i'm always using the normal prepaid. For this method, you need to change your sim card to broadband. dial *100# for menu. after it approve that your sim was change to broadband, then you need to chose amount for internet.(ex rm8 for one day). after all that was approve, then you can connect your handphone to pc or laptop. You can use Bluetooth or cable to connect. For me, i'm prepared using cable as long it have great speed.

Before that, you need to install pc suite for nokia to laptop/ pc that you use. If you don't know how to use pc suite, then use manual. after connect cable/btooth, you need confirmation from pc suite to get connected also.
then from that you can use user iterface that already in pc suite.

If you don't use pc suite, then you can use broadband dial up. Username and password will gived by your provider.
Create new connection using broadband and dial up. enter username and password, then you will connect to internet, For first using, it will need time around 1-2 minutes. thanks

Welcome to Fixya

Hi. As what i understand the MC760 alone can connect to the internet without connecting to the router. This device will act as a modem right away. This is the one of the device where you will put in a simcard to connect to the internet if i am not mistaken. You need to download and install the software of for this device and creat a dial up for your to be able to connect to the internet. Here's the link where you can download the driver and the procedure on how to create Dial up.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Modem


Assuming that Windows has recognized the modem, and has loaded the correct device-drivers, Windows can use the modem.

You'll need to find an Internet Service Provider that provides "dial-up" service.

You'll need to have a land-line telephone (not a cell-phone) with your local telephone-company.

Connect a 4-wire cable (not an 8-wire Ethernet cable) from the "line" port on the modem to the telephone wall-jack.

Then, follow the instructions given you by your Internet Service Provider to configure your modem to connect to their dial-up server. Or, telphone them, and their Technical Support staff will guide you through the necessary configuration steps.

I had been using dial-up internet and then switched over to broadband internat. Now since I have disconnected the broadband net, I want to use the dial-up modem. However, I am gtg a note that the device...


It's kind of difficult to tell what your exact problem may be, but note that the cable and connections for dial-up and broadband are different.

The dial-up cable is telephone wire connected to its port in an internal modem. Broadband is connected with thicker Ethernet cable connected to a network card.

The ports look similar, but the Ethernet port is a bit larger.

So, you need to connect to the right port/card with the right cable.

When you connect to dial-up, you should hear a beep-beep-beep sound from the modem.

Hope this info helps.

I have acer aspire one without a modem


Hello there,

You say you dont have a modem....but you want to connect via dial up?

Well ok, you need to do the following:

1. Contact an ISP (people like Virgin, Tiscali, TalkTalk, etc etc etc)
2. Sign up for the package you want.
3. They will send you a modem. It wont be for dial up but broadband.
4. Connect it and off you go.

However, if you REALLY want to use the internet using dial up you will have to go find an old cheap dial up modem.
BT, Tiscali and a few others do let you use a pay per min rate for dial up, but their is no one I know of that lets you get on line for nothing at all.

The only other service I have heared of was here:
http://www.connect4free.co.uk/
And even they charge 1p per min.

So if I were you.... go broadband as its faster and in the long run, cheaper.

If this has helped you please rate it so that I know.

Thank you.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

best regards,
