Problem connecting to dial-up internet

I have a Dell inspiron 1525; Problem connecting to dial-up internet: Computer dials the number, get the ''handshake'' but it is completely choppy and sounds kinda like it's breaking up or something, then it connects (95% of the time), and disconnects before you can open the home page. Then I reconnect (same sounds heard during connection, and usually it will stay connected, but half the websites I try to visit (i.e. google or yahoo) it gives me either ''address not valid'' couldn't connect to website, and at least a quarter of the time it does a google search rather than going to the website. I know that's a lot but do you have an idea? btw phone line is clear as a bell)

    Tried the alternate phone numbers but they did the same thing. Also noticed it does this while starting up. The start up tones break up and crackle just like the handshake. But I know it's not the speakers cause music and video play flawlessly... any other ideas?

You have dial up? wow.. well, might not be your computer or phone line. Might be the server your dialing into. Is there a different phone number from a different server you can dial to test this theory?

My fiance is the the military! I sent him my old Dell latitude CP ... I forgot that it doesn't have a phone plug to connect to the Dial up on base. Is there a way to connect to the internet I don't...


I bought my sister a Dell laptop that didn't have a dial up modem in it, never saw one that didn't have one.
Dell sells a dial up modem that goes into the usb port for about $35, which I sent to her and it works. Basically it is just an external dial up modem.
Give it a try, just call the dell help phone number.

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...


You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Inspiron 1525 my pc keeps dialing internet at random when not asked to do so..... cant seem to find a reason for it ...... i am very new to pcs .....[first time 1 month only].


The reason this is happening is because you have programs on your PC attempting to access the internet. To change this behaviour, open control panel and go into internet options. On the connections tab, select your dial up connection and click the box next to never dial. Click Okay. Now it will only dial up when you tell it to by selecting start, connect to, your internet connection.
