Please forgive short answers or bad typing i broke my wrist in an auto accident last night. there are modems with call waiting. if yours has call waiting go into your help file and it should tll you how. if your modem doesn't have call waiting or you don't have it on your phone then you'll need a different modem and/or will have to add call waiting to your phone line. however, if you add this and/or set it up it will corrupt any downloads happening when a call comes in. most people usually end up turning call waiting off eventually.

How do I reach someone by phone to change my credit card number to automatically keep my transponder working when needed?


That depends if you are using a mobile or landline to call.

If a mobile, dial in the required number then press send/call, usually the green button.

If on a landline, dial any required number for an outside line if in an office, then dial the required number.

Problem with not working right with dial up


Your dial-up relies on the internal modem to be working properly.

Check for your modem status using Device Manager.

If the listing for the modem has any yellow or red highlighting, then the modem software or hardware needs to be changed.
If you leave your PC plugged into a phone line, internal modems are easily destroyed by lightning storms or surges in the phone line.
If the Device Manager looks okay, then call your Internet Service Help Desk.

How do you get the ezbook pc windows embedded CE6.0 to connect to internet via dial up. Have a service, pulgged it up and unable to connect.


Dial up requires a modem instead of a LAN card. It uses an RJ-11 phone plug and not the bigger RJ-45 LAN plug. You also need a dial up internet service provider, and possibly software to make the phone call. There is a Connections setup in Internet Options, under Control Panel if you don't have the software.

So, you are right on track. Just make the call and enter the user name and password to finalize connection.

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:

Here's some generic guides on ICS (Internet connection sharing) on Windows:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing

Here's a link for sharing Internet connections on a Mac (if Mac's even have a dial-up port, I honestly don't know how old you'd have to go to get one with it):

Best of luck!

Guys!! I hava Karbonn k10 I am using Aircel prepaid in Karanataka. They have launched a scheme for Rs 98/- month free internet both on Mobile and PC. On mobile the internet settings are working fine. I...


For that you've to configure the dial up settings of your Karbon phone. Like NOkia PC suite, they Karbon should have a dial up. PPP link control protocol terminated means that you're password is wrong, or the pack you've taken is expired. Please ask the port number and access name from Aircel Cusomter care. They should provide it and these are needed for dial up.

Thanks

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

Use a wired router for dial-up (NETZERO) connection..


You want to use a LAN with a router that uses a dial-up as a backbone internet connection for your LAN.
This is absolutely possible.

If you just want to share the connection that one computer has, and dont want to buy a router that has a built-in modem, try this

If you are running windows, There is a feature called Internet Connection Sharing (ICS.) It will share the dialup across the network.

Just 1 hookup the router and all the pcs to it. 2 Dialup the machine with the modem. 3 Enable ICS on that machine. 4 Youre LAN is online.

In XP, goto the network connections, and while you have 2 active connections in there (the dialup and the LAN port connected to the router), right click the dialup, goto properties. goto advanced tab, and click on enable ICS.
The other computers should be served IP's automatically and NAT'd out to the internet by the computer running ICS.

(The other computers should be automatically setup to the internet like they should be and connected to the dialup riunning on the ICS (host) computer)

Ic help


Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions

Blitzz Router


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.
