Dial-up Won't Open Port

I have Windows Vista (I know...).

Earlier today I was using my dial-up connection, and where I live out in the midde of nowhere, our electricity can be a little bit glitchy. Anyway, it went out for just a second before turning back on.

So, I started my computer back up, and tried to connect back to my Dial-up. Basically as soon as I hit "connect" it will stay on the "Opening port" for a second, and then will say it failed to connect.

I tried trouble-shooting it, and it said that everything is fine. :( Help?

How would i use dial up connection to connect my playstation 3 to internet?


Why would you want to? Dial up is so terribly slow for just Internet browsing; I imagine for playing games online it'd be even worse (if it even lets you connect with such a slow connection).

That being said, you obviously can't direct connect dial up to the PS3. There isn't a port for that. Instead you'll have to do a work around involving a PC/laptop with a dial-up modem/port and an Ethernet port on it. You'll also need and Ethernet cable.

Basically the plan is to connect to dial up using your laptop/PC, then share the connection on it from the dial-up port to the Ethernet port. The PS3 would then connect to the Internet through your computer. Not ideal, but then again having only dial up isn't an ideal situation to begin with.

Here's some specific guides on the matter:

I do not have a dial tone, and when someone tries to call me, it goes directly into my voice mail. This just happened today sometime, I used my phone earlier. I don't know if I pushed a button or what.


Sounds like your phone system is disconnected somewhere. Check the wiring from the connect box that enters the house and trace it forward.

Modem in use


Try the following:

-Open the Control Panel
-Open System
-Click on Device Manager
-Click on Modems
-Highlight and right click on the listed modem
-Select Uninstall

Close out anything open and Restart.

IF (!) Windows is cooperating, it should 'find a new device' and reinstall the Winmodem (it's only software and a little telephone line matching).

If Windows fails to recognize the 'new device,' you will have to manually reinstall it via the 'add new hardware' path in the Control Panel.

As with any Windows stuff - rotsa ruck!

Regarding driver


You are not alone. Most people that are using Vista can't get wireless drivers or dial up drivers to work even when they are marked as Vista compatible. If your notebook has a serial port I would recommend buying an external modem. Usually weather or not you have Vista XP or Linux an external modem will work that is hooked up via a serial connection but if the vendors of your laptop were too cheap to put in a serial port your out of luck unless you can find a PCMCIA or PCI Express card that has dial up and a vista driver. You need to know if you have PCI or PCMCIA. Now if this is a new laptop I would suggest you take it back to wherever you got it and contact www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue and have them give you a laptop that has the ability to connect to dial up.

Secondly Dial Up won't work with Vista correctly because Vista is full of DRM (Digital Restrictions Management) and Trusted Computing technology that use to be codenamed "Project Longhorn" back in 2002. This requires Vista to send and recieve information from Micro$oft at all times to make sure your not pirating music, using non registered Micro$oft software, or using a dial up modem that does not support DRM drivers lol :) . It says this in the Vista EULA. Now the above company Computer Rescue does not sell any Vista Computers. They only sell XP and Linux computers. I'm sure you would appreciate that a lot more.

Ah, you can no longer use the modem or the Blitzz screen to connect to your Internet connection. You'll need to patch another Ethernet cord from the router to your Ethernet port on your computer and it should automatically connect. If you still get prompted to dial, open up Internet Explorer and ignore any prompts to dial and then click Tools, then Internet Options, then click the Connections tab at the top, then click the selection to Never Dial a Connection. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and then try browsing the Internet like usual.
