Can't use dial up with my computer seems stuck on broadband

My grandchildren were given a computer by Big Brothers/Big Sisters but we only have dial up and it seems stuck on broadband what can I do? When ''People'' tried to set me up with dial up and it came to the connections page, it refused to allow me to check off the box with dial up. Broadband is highlighted. Please help, we can't afford to go to a computer store to have it fixed. Evelyn

Daughter gave me her computer. she had broadband, I have dial-up, can't get on-line.... no modem????


Hi

A lot of computers these days are supplied with no modem due to the popularity of Broadband.

To check if you have a modem on that computer do the following

Right click on "My Computer". Click "Properties". Select the "Hardware" Tab on the top. Then click "Device Manager". Go down the list until you see "Modems" and click the plus sign to expand it. If you see anything listed here you have a telephone modem installed.

If you want to stay on dial up and there is no modem in the list the only thing you can do is have one installed to the computer. However I cannot recommend this course of action. Dial up is a completely outdated and extremely expensive way of using the internet as you are charged each time the modem connects (like a telephone call). Even if you have a bundle of modem minutes from your provider it is still expensive and slow!!

Contact your provider and see if you can get Broadband in your area. You will not regret it - I guarantee you!

Thanks for using FixYa and please do rate my answer.

The broadband box pops up when i go to livemail . how do i stop it when i go to livemail


If I understand this correctly, when you open the internet to check your E-mail, it prompts you to connect? Try going (in Internet Explorer) to Tools | Internet Options | Connections and be sure that "Always dial" is not selected. Instead, change this to "Dial whenever a broadband conenction is not available" and see if this stops your issue.

Modem says no dial tone detected


Good morning! It's common to a Dial-Up connection to drop the line during session as signal strength is going low eventhough modem is working properly. Please try to use DSL / Broadband connection as signal strength is 1Mbps or greater. best regards.

I am on broadband. I have a dial-up account for when away. Dial-up is set to dial only when network not found - and has been this way for many months without any problem. Broadband working no prob but now...


One thing that could be possible is there is a program running that could be requesting information from the internet and rather than using the broadband it attempts to access with dial-up. One quick fix would be to go to Internet options and under the "Connections" tab uncheck the box that states Dial whenever..... and check the box that states Never dial a connection. I would use this setting when you use your broadband and when you are away traveling you can go back and check the box to Dial whenever.....

Good Luck

Cannot send or recieve faxes


You cannot send a fax on a broadband connection, they should have given you a splitter, if not get one, the splitter is a small box like thing, it has two telephone sockets on one side and one socket on the other, the telephone line from the wall is connected on one side, on the other side you have to connect your adsl modem in one and your telephone in another socket, Usually the sockets have descriptions on them specifing which decive should be connected to the socket.

Now you should have a dial up modem(56Kbps internal or external modem) connect this modem to the socket which specifies, Telephone. Configure the modem. configure yor fax settings to use this modem. Now you can send your faxes.

If your ISP does not support dial-up then you cannot use it to send faxes.

Post back with your results.
