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

I read where Longmire is going to be on NetFlex. How to I go about getting it. Does it come on the TV Caroline Skinner La.


Netflix is a subscription service that is delivered by a broadband internet connection. Dial up connections will not work for Netflix. If you have a broadband connection, you will need a device capable of accessing Neflix. Some choices are: a computer, a Roku stream player or many of the network capable BluRay Disk players and Smart TV sets. Currently, a streaming only subscription is ~$8 / month, more for DVD / BluRay disks mailed to your home.

All of your questions and more are answered here:

You can get a free 30 account when you sign up.

Tip

8 People can use the same MSN dial up account.


It's easy really. Want to have an entire family on dial up with just one bill?

All you have to do is purchase 20 dollar a month subscription to MSN unlimited access dial up. This will include an MSN 9 CD which you will need. With these software installed, filled up you secondary account slot with new users. Make sure @msn if it gives you the choice, hotmail email address will not work.

Connect to your local msn phone number and the other people you gave a secondary accounts to will be able to do the same, while you are connected. It's a sweet deal considering everyone is paying about 2 bucks a month for internet access, especially if you cannot get broadband. If you wanted to sell off the access to people you could actually make money by doing this... but i do not suggest it.

Is there a way to get my Toshiba Satellite pro 440CDX to conncect to a ethernet cord and not dial up


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION (non dial-up connection)

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Yes, you will lose it since it was part of the dialup account. Also all the data and addresses stored on that account will be lost . Set yourself a free internet email (one for which you need only a browser to access) and notify everyone that you changed the mail address

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.
