    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.

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

I guess they were asking for the Office serial... Microsoft provides serials but for time-limited trial versions.Go to:

and get one of those serials.
To get a non-limited version, you would have to buy Office online.
