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

  • hillcontract Aug 14, 2008

    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.

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

an ethernet connection to connect to the internet or

Tip

Set up and Use Internet Connection Sharing


Hi,

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

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.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.


To configure Internet options on your client computers for Internet Connection Sharing

Open Internet Explorer. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.)

On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

On the Connections tab, click Never dial a connection, and then click LAN Settings.

In Automatic configuration, clear the Automatically detect settings and Use automatic configuration script check boxes.

In Proxy Server, clear the Use a proxy server check box.


Good luck!

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

I dont have access to internet am missing the hardwere


Most Internet Service providers do provide the modems necessary to connect to the internet. If you are not using a modem and are using dialup, then you will need to make sure your computer has a dial modem and that you have an active phone line to plug into your computer.

If you would like to use DSL or Cable to connect to the internet, then a call to your ISP will be sufficient and a tech will come to hook up your connection.

You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Since you are using the Internet I must assume you are using the Dial up settings. I may expect that this AT&T service is DSL. In Internet Settings there is a tab marked "Connections" and the Dial Up settings are set to "Always Dial My Default Connection". Click on "Never Dial a Connection" and this problem should be solved. Next thing is to ensure that the DSL connection is connected properly since if this is not setup correctly you won't even get online until you reset the "Connections" tab to the original setting.

HAVE TATA INDICOM LG250 MODEM CONNECTED TO MY DESKTOP PC I WOULD LIKE TO CONNECT IT TO MY HP PRESARIO C700 LAPTOP. I HAVE LAN & TELEPHONE CABLE TOO. CAN I CONNECT IT AND ACCESS THE INTERNET?


as long as you have the ports for it yes, are you trying wireless, or a wired connection? depending on how old or new your laptop is you may be able to connect the telephone line right into your laptop, although that would be dial up and very slow so i would recommend using a cat5 cable aka normal internet cable

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.
