Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a compaq laptop that I use to connect to the internet. I am on a dial-up connection. Yesterday morning it just quit accessing the internet. I have spoken with AT&T who is my ISP and they spent 1 1/2 hours on the phone with me. I am using Internet Explorer as my web browser. Any ideas.

    I have already checked that out. It is unchecked. Any other thoughts?

    Is there a phone number I can call someone on? I live in the country and have a dial up connection. Right now I am at a public library about 20 miles from my home. If so, it would be awesome.

    Thanks.

make a menu on top toolbar right click in top toolbar
select menu bar this will add file edit view fav tools and help

click on tools then from the drop down list internet options connections tick in never dial a connection

then you will have to add your isp internet service provider
first you must have an ISP Internet Service provider contract which will provide you with a modem and leads you can choose either a dial up usb or

an ethernet connection to connect to the internet or
if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb modem
which can work on a desktop aswell once you recieve the modem just insert the disk provided and follow the prompts to set up your new internet connection

during the setup process you will be asked for a password I suggest you make a log of all pass words used outside of your computer incase of memory lapses

hope it helps

Open up Internet Options (from the Tools menu in IE or right-clicking the desktop icon and selecting Properties, or through the Control Panel). On the Connections tab, select 'Never dial a connection.' When you want to connect to your ISP you will be required to manually start the dial-up connection.

Wont keep passwords


Go into your firewall and allow TCPI connections.
And most anything related to your internet connection allow.
If you are running Vista the fire wall has most everything shut down as default settings so you need to change it to allow your IP address access.
Also in Vista you have to allow or not allow sharing in the control panel under networking.
