Broadband wont access internet

January 9, 2009 at 06:26:30
Specs: WinXP, 2.2Ghz; 512Mb
After I made the switch from DialUp to Broadband (trial), my browsers kept prompting dial-up Connection Dialog boxes. I could stop that by removing the DialUp ISPs from Internet Options; Connections tab. [However, the Broadband ISP was NOT entered as an alternative - can/should it be ?] Then the browsers returned variations on the theme of 'page can not be found'. The ISP techy ran out of ideas to try. When I reset the dial-up option, it was able to access the internet again. My experience with someone else's laptop wireles connection makes me ask "Which Services have to be Automatic/Manual & Started for Broadband to function ?"

If you are using IE, from the connections tab, click setup. Follow the wizard for broadband connections.

Only if you are connecting via a USB modem. With an Ethernet Modem/Router it is not used.

The necessery services with be configured when you run the wizard.

I rang the ISP again (about OTHER matters) and the techy said that he would try to get me 'on-line'. He did something AT HIS END, and I have had internet access since. I can only infer that everything at my end was in order after all.
