If you have a dial-up account and are using Windows XP, you can connect to the Internet by following these steps:

Click Start.

  1. Click Connect to.
  2. Select DomainName.DomainType, such as yourisp.com or 24hoursupport.com.
  3. Type your user name, which is the first part of your email address. For the email address tsimpson@24hoursupport.com, for example, the user name is tsimpson.
  4. Type your password.
  5. If you do not want to type your user name and password each time you connect, click the Save this user name … box.
  6. If you checked the Save this user name … box, select Me only or Anyone who uses this computer. If your computer does not require a user name and password to sign on, then your only choice is Anyone who uses this computer.
  7. Click Dial. If you have trouble connecting or get disconnect frequently, you may need to disable call waiting. Otherwise, contact technical support.
