    To Randy V

    We used to use Hello pacific for a few years but they have since sold out. My son had Telstra Broadband. I don't want to pay for it again which is why I am trying to get connected to dial up again.

    Particularly for to coplete the family's tax on line.

    what is the company for your internet?

    Some broadband providers (AT&T) offer free backup Dial up service with all their packages. All you have to do is call your service provider and ask for local access numbers.

    After you have the numbers on hand,


    1. Go to "Start", then "Control Panel"

    2. On the left, look for "classic view" and click on it.

    3. Now, look for "Network Connections" and open it.

    4. On the left, click "create new connection"

    5. Select "create a dial up connection"

    6. The wizard will guide you through the rest. Just enter your information.
    there should be a new icon on the "Network Connection" Window with the name that you gave previously. Open it.
    You should now be able to connect to the Internet via Dial up.

Ok. You want to setup a new Dial up connection.

First, you need to call a service provider and sign up for service with them. Here are a few companies.

  • AT&T Dial - 1-800-524-8500
  • Netzero - 1-888-349-0029 or online
  • People PC - 1-877-947-3327 offer code WEB6
Netzero provides 10 hours free per month with ads.

Personaly, I've had People PC and their customer service is great. On the contrary, I've had Netzero and their wait is at least 2 minutes for a representative. AT&T has also a good customer service.
The service provider you choose is up to you. All of these companies offer speeds of 56Kbps, which is the fastest you can get with dial up. People PC and Netzero offer "internet accelerators".

After choosing, they will send you a CD or you can download their software online.
Click here for PeoplePC.
Click here for Netzero.
At&T does not have their software online.
You already have an internal modem so just install the program and thats it.
Hope this helps.
