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

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

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.

On the Type the information from your Internet service provider (ISP) screen, enter the details as follows:
a) Dial-up phone number: 0198308333
b) User name: Your full Westnet username. This will generally be in the format of yourusername@westnet.com.au, or sometimes yourusername@wn.com.au.
c) Password: Enter your Westnet password. This is case-sensitive, so ensure your caps lock key is switched off and you are entering your password in the correct case.
d) Connection name: It is recommended you change this to Westnet Dial-up Connection.
e) Allow other people to use this connection: If you have other Windows user accounts on this computer, and you intend for them to be able to use this dial up connection, check the box. Otherwise, leave it unchecked.
f) Ensure you have connected your modem to the phone socket, and click Connect. This will automatically attempt to test the new connection by dialing up to the internet.

I want to connect to my DSL but my emachine


First, go to control panel, click the icon "network connections" you most likely will see setups that exist for dial up.

Make sure your DSL drivers and box are fucntioning properly, then delete the existing connections, Your install disc for your DSL should set things up nicely, after that, create a new network connection, and DON"T, repeat DON'T choose the dialling options, follow the prompts, you will see all the right questions to answer, like "never dial a connection", which is what your PC has been told to do previously.

It will happen so fast, you will wonder what you did.

Hi. My problem is that I can not use the internet with my laptop. We have a router/broadband and all of my flatmates can use the internet, even those who have Vista. I first thought it was because of Vista...


I've found on a forum that the error 815 means that your Internet Service Provider server is not responding. You have to check your connection's settings (username and password for your ISP, DHCP config). And, see if the connection by default is the right one (not the dial-up), in Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and select Never dial.
