Set Up Dial-up Connections


If you are still using a dial-up connection to reach the Internet, follow these steps…

  1. From the Internet section of WinTOTAL Configuration Utility, click Trusted Sites to ensure that WinTOTAL can connect to all pertinent a la mode servers.
  2. Then, click Internet Setup.
  3. Select the Modem and phone line option and click Next.
  4. The wizard scans your system and displays any Dial-Up Network connections you have configured on your system. If none are found, a message appears notifying you that you need to setup your Dial-Up Network connection(s). In this case, you must first configure a dial-up connection in your Windows operating system. Consult the Windows user guide for assistance with this process.
  5. Select the desired dial-up connection from the list and click Next.

  6. Now, select the option to “test drive” your connection and click Next. The setup wizard attempts to activate your modem and make a connection with the Internet.
    • If all goes well, the wizard informs you that it has, so click Finish to complete the configuration.
    • If the wizard encounters a problem connecting, it notifies you and gives you the option of making another attempt or exiting the wizard. If you think there was a mistake, try the connection again by selecting the first option, then clicking Next. Otherwise, choose the second option and click Finish.
