Preferred Solution: How do you share a dial up connection?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: How do you share a dial up connection?

I would think you need to set one up in Network and Sharing Centre, then in Sharing tab in Properties, select the appropriate option. Give it a go.

Just remember that you're bandwidth is going to be way dogged down trying to do this. We're talking zipolay bandwidth (OK, you'll have some, but probably just enough to frustrate you!)

Second, your Internet provider will definitely frown on this unless you use something (like a router) to mask the fact that you're using two systems at one time to access the Net. (Can't remember if Win9x or XP's Internet Connection Sharing does this masking automatically, but it seems to me that Win9x doesn't. I could be wrong).)

If you're using Win9x, you have to enable Internet Connection Sharing, I believe it is, in the Control Panel's Add/Remove Software: Click on the Windows tab and go to ... (have to look real quick ...) Internet Tools and enable Internet Connection Sharing. Too, firewalls may not work in this configuration either, so keep that in mind.

Hope this helps,

I've recently networked two computers, a newer HP Pavilion (XP-h) and an older Compaq Presario (ME) using a d-link router. Both computers have a dial-up connection when needed (which is rare) but on occasions it would be nice to have both computers online at the same time.

Is there a way to do this? I know I could do it easily with a broadband connection, especially because I'm using a router anyway, but that's just not needed here.

thanks,
JTN
 

Answer:share a dial-up connection

you can do Internet Connection Sharing. You will have to choose which one will be the 'gateway', but I wouldn't recommend it on a dial-up service.

Actually I wouldn't recommend it period. It's a pain in the rear when something goes wrong.

I already know the answer to this but I'm hoping there's something out there. Is there ANYWAY POSSIBLE to share a dial up connection through a windows 2000 domain?

Analog router is too much.
 

Answer:dial up share connection??!!

Well, I suppose you could. But why?

If you just made the connection on the main computer, you could then share it like you could a broadband connection. It would be no diffrent to setup.

Of course, it's going to be really slow if you share it. Any dialup connections have a tendency of cutting out a lot,so odds are pretty good it will keep going down.

OK, here is the problem. My wife and I both have laptops and often want to get online at the same time. I can't get cable or DSL and sattelite Internet is $$ not feasible. Can I set up to share one a connection either wired or wireless?? I do not want to add another line right now, I am looking at my options. Would a wired router get me anywhere? I am looking at the Wiflyer from cyberguys.com and it looks to be my best bet right now, any suggestions??
 

Answer:Possible for two laptops to share one dial-up connection??

you will need to setup a rudimentary network

get yourself a small router, plug both the systems in to the router, enable internet connection sharing on the system that is plugged into the socket and then have your other laptop use the connected laptop as its default gateway etc.

this should work I think.

I am trying to set up an ad hoc wireless network to share a dial up internet
connection but am having trouble getting the internet sharing happening. I thought this would be a fairly painless thing to do - obviously not!

I am using two computers:

1 - a desktop with a dial up modem and a wireless network card running on
Windows XP Home that connects to the internet via a dialup modem.

2 - a notebook with a wireless network card running Windows Vista Business.

I want the laptop to be able to connect wirelessly to the desktop and share
the dial up internet connection (once that is working will then want to share
printers).

Both computers have wireless network cards.

I have managed to set up the wireless network and it seems to be working OK but the internet connection sharing isn't working.

The desktop still connects to the internet and works properly.

The laptop sees the desk top system but it shows that the internet is not connected to the desktop (even though it is).

I have tried a number of different IP config and DNS settings on both network cards but seem to be chasing my tail.

Can anyone offer me some assistance to get this up and running?

I've had my network on dial up for quite some time now, and I just thought I'd tell some people how to share their dial up connection to multiple computers or gaming consoles, wirelessly or wired.
To start off, you need at least 2 computers, or 1 computer and a gaming console, ex. xbox 360, ps3, wii. The first computer, computer A if you will, will have the dial up modem and an ethernet card (or wireless card). To set the main computer (computer A) up as a host for your connection, you will need to configure ICS. Right click on your internet connection (on your Network Connection window, on Windows XP)(or Manage Network Connections, on Vista). Go to the Advanced tab and check the 3 boxes. (Note: If you don't want your connection to dial all the time, as you have a phone also connected to your line, uncheck the 2nd box) (Note 2: If you have more than one LAN card or wireless card, a drop-down box will appear. Select the card you want to use for ICS). Now, your internet is shared.
Now for the 2nd part on computer A: setting up the IPs. **(If you use a wireless router, you can skip this step, as the router assigns the settings automatically). Go back to Network Connections (or Manage Network Connections) and right click your LAN adapter that you want to use: ex. Local Area Connection. Click Properties and go to TCP/IP settings. Being the host computer, Computer A will have to have these settings: IP: 192.168.0.1, Subnet Mask is usually 255.255.255.0, Do Not Put A ... Read more

Guys,

This is something very strange, and if this is a big problem to fix, I am just going to have to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch.

I have a Gateway PC with I.E 6 with Windows 98 as my OS. I also have a DSL Internet Connection and this problem just started today.

I can play media content just fine (or, I should say....so far with Windows Media Player 7) However, when I go to this one particular website:

www.tpirtv.com which is a website devoted to the TV Gameshow, the Price is Right, I can not play any of the videos, even though I could play them fine last week. What happens is, shortly after Windows Media Player opens, my Internet-Dial Up connection appears even though I have no dial-up connection. (I run DSL) The user name is blank, the screen name is blank and it says that I am off-line (like I am using dial-up, which I am not.)

Second issue, if I open OE 6 to read my mail, the dial-up connection wizard also opens! What's going on??!!!

okey here is my situation, currently i am using windows 7 RC 64bit. the modem i used to use to connect to the net do not have a 64bit driver for win 7. so i installed xp in vmware and installed my modem in that xp. now i can connect online but i have to do it inside that xp. i am failing to share that dial up connection with my windows 7 os. i have already select the internet connection sharing for that dial up connection.

here is a screen shot of my screen with all the network settings tab and their current value. Network Adapter type is selected as NAT in vmware.



can some one from here please help me out with these different network settings , which i have got no clue.
 

Answer:How to share a dial up internet connecion from guest to host os in vmware

Its kinda hard to tell from the screen shot but it looks like you have this:

XP Machine - VM
IP - 192.168.0.1
Connects to internet

Win7 Machine - Physical
IP of VM adapter - 192.168.0.10

I am assuming that the network config screen you're showing for win7 is for the Virtual NIC that VMware uses. If this is true it needs the gateway set to 192.168.0.1

I've found when sharing a dial-up connection you sometimes need to run the Network Config wizard to make sure everything is set right. The default set-up by the wizard should also turn on a DHCP server on the device sharing the connection. Your Win7 machine then should be able to set up everything with DHCP - no manual configs necessary.

Also check firewall settings so all of this plays nice.

Answer:Telewest BB Connection Help (share connection)

Personal opinion would be to go down the router road. However:Why not consider wireless?It's relatively cheap these days.2 wireless pci adapters will allow you to connect both machines for file sharing and pc1 can be used as PC 2's web access. You can buy 2 wireless adapters (802.11b) from ebuyer for 40 delivered and no doubt cheaper from the local PC shop. The only downside to this method is pc1 has to be switched on if PC requires web access.If you go to the blueyonder networking section click here they'll quite happily supply you with netgear products to the tune of 111 for a router, wireless pcmcia card for laptop and usb wireless adapter for PC (802.11b).Definitely consider wireless, especially with the summer coming up and that nice Chardonnay you been saving can be sipped whilst you while away endless hours surfing on the lounger in the garden.Happy hunting

password and it says it is invalid; I hit cancel and it connects to internet?
I have typed in my previous password that I had this winter in Arizona and
it immediately connects. i live in Nebr. now.

Once in a while, the dial-up window will have my password in it, and a
check in the Save password box and everything goes fine. Not very
often this happens.

XP ProFor some reason my dial up connection box now apprears on the screen when i start up.The only thing that i have installed in recent weeks is newer versions of norton firewall and system works. Any sugestions on stopping this automatic pop up?Thanks in advance.

Answer:Dial up connection

Sounds as if something wants to connect.Possibly SystemWorks is set to update on startup. Create the connection and see what the firewall says is connecting.What programs start with the PC? Maybe one of them wants to connect - eg an AV program for example.If you are concerned, get a spyware checker - eg AdAware or SpyBot Search and Destroy.

I have a friends pc running windows xp and she can't get onto the internet via dial up.There was a tesco dial up connection running at one time but this ceased working and so she has asked me to try and sort it out.I have tried to set up a copy of my dial up connection using the connect to the internet wizard but get a network configuration error message saying "unable to create the specified connection. this can be caused by not enough memory or insufficient disk space"She has 512mb ram and 14bg free on her 40gb hard drive.Any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks

Answer:Help with dial up connection please

You might try a software approach by going to *CONNECTIONS* and selecting *ALL*. This will show you all the connections installed on the PC. Highlight the *Dial Up* option and right click then select Delete. If their are more than one Dial Up connections delete those the same way. Now select *Create a New Connection* and follow the instructions.Have you tested the Modem/cable? If that's faulty then it's a hardware problem and the equipment will need replacing.Good luck!

Question: Dial Up Connection

When I click on Outlook Express, the Dial Up Connection will not appear. If I then click on the Send/Receive box, it will do the connection to the internet.

Or, I can click on Internet Explorer and the Dial Up Connection will appear and connect. Then I can switch to Outlook Express.

This condition just started this morning. Any Ideas?

IE and OE share Connection Settings, so in IE you can go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections Tab. Make sure you have selected the radio button "Always Dial my Default Connection".

Hello guys
I have just replaced my motherboard and processor from a AMD XP1600 to a XP2400.
Started up the machine and it wouldn't run the OS. So I did a windows xp repair from the XP disk and it repaired ok or so it seemed. When I tried to connect to the internet I noticed that my desktop dial-up connection icon had gone.
Ok I thought, I will make a new connection. Clicked on the "make a new connection" icon, then proceeded through the various screens of the wizard until I got to the "select your modem type" where you get the options of what type of connection you have. I put in "connect to broadband adsl" and then the wizard just disappeared. What is happening?
The ADSL line is up and running no problem. (PIPEX 512k).
Just can't seem to log on down it.
Will I have to reload windows completely from scratch?
Seems a pity as the repair was looking good.
Is it something to do with Administrator privaleges that have been reset by the repair?

Answer:New dial-up connection?

You installed new board while OS stayed the same?
Dude, you gotta reainstall your OS over new board. It's not configured for it. LOL

A friend of mine installed Freeserve on his Dell Laptop running XP Pro and now, when I go to manually set-up an internet connection the first two options are greyed out and can't be selected:

Connect using a dial-up modem
Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password

I don't know if the Freeserve install caused the issue -I tried uninstalling it and there's no un-install feature (great!). I'm thinking it's probably the registry but don't where to look.

Regards,
maslett

I keep getting pop up windows for dial up connection (to connect to the internet) -- they pop up 6-10 times right after I turn my computer on.

I've never connected to the internet that way and these pop ups drive me crazy.

Anyone have any ideas how to kill the dial up connection window and keep it gone?

I have Windows XP - if that's any help.

I'm on a Windows XP Home, SP2 using a Toshiba laptop, using a Wireless Modem, and constantly I have a window pop up asking me if I want to connect to the internet using a dial up connection, this thing drives me nuts as it comes up all the time, sometimes 5-10 times an hour, is there a way I can shut this thing off without turning off my wireless internet connection as well?This isnt a major computer problem, but it might as well be its so annoying, any thoughts on this problem?[old attachment deleted by admin]

Answer:Dial Up Connection

Does this happen when you are not on the computer and nothing is running?  Are you surfing the net with wireless when it happens?  If so are you using IE as you web browser?  Do you use Outlook or Outlook Express for your email?  Is it open during this time?  All of these things if configured to do so can prompt for connecting to a dial up connection.

Question: dial up connection

I live in a rural area so still have dial up. I use AOL 9.1, Vista x64 on an HP Pavilion Notebook. Everything worked fine for a month. Now, when attempting to go online, it won't connect. I uninstalled and reinstalled AOL..still won't work. It finds the modem but when it attempts to dial for the numbers it says there is no dial tone. I can hear the dial tone, but as it dials, I can still hear the dial tone in the background. I did the modem checks and everything supposedly is working. I went to AOL and they say it's a Vista problem. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Since changing ISP from Freeserve Unlimited to Freeserve Anytime I have been unable to access the internet by double-clicking on the Internet Explorer icon. As well as no dial-up connection box appearing an error message appears which reads "Work Offline: No connection to the internet is currently available. To view internet content that has been saved on your computer click [Work Offline]. Click [Try Again] to attempt to connect." Clicking on either of the two options gets me nowhere, bringing up a blank page.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me a few ideas what might be causing this. Thanking you in anticipation.
 

Answer:No Dial-Up Connection Box

Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptions>Connections. Do you see the new ISP account listed under "DialupSettings"? If so, underneath it select "Dial whenever a network connection doesn't exist" aand click on Apply. Now try the IE icon on the desktop.

Question: Dial up Connection

Hello!!! the problem i have is that i have a computer connected using dial up but im not able to get online because it is telling me that there is no dial tone. I use AOL 9.0 optimized. I have tried to get online using both of my phone lines but no luck in getting through on the internet. When i use the aol software it is able to detect the modem but when the software tries to get access numbers for me to choose from i have no luck. Im assuming this has something to do with the phone line or with the modem it self. The computer is detecting the modem just fine and the phone line has a dial tone because other wise i would not be able to go online. I would like the feed back of some tech people here on this forum to trie and resolve this problem. I also tried to do a manual connection instead of using the aol software through the control panel on my windows XP

Answer:Dial up Connection

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is voicemail interference (when I used to have dial-up, if I had a voicemail waiting the dialtone would stutter to let me know; I had to listen to my messages and then it worked) or some sort of dial-out code that needs to be put in the string for the phone number.

And here's my small rant: don't use AOL. Their programs like to eat up your computer ports. When I finally got rid of it I had to completely baseline my system to regain control of my ports.

Hi
When I click on a link which asks me to send an email, a small screen comes up headed New Messages. The From and To fields are already filled in correctly when it appears but when I type my message/request/whatever, along comes another screen headed Dial Up Connection and then Connect btinternet.com (my ISV.) My name again is correctly filled in with a space saying if I want to change this password (what password?) to enter it in space provided. I have tried every known password which I have ever used and when I press to connect, another little screen pops up telling me that it is 'unable to establish a connection.'

Can anyone tell me how to get around this. I end up copying and pasting the original link into my btYahoo mail box and sending it that way. A tad long winded.

Question: Dial Up Connection

is there a program that can keep my dial up connection alive and redial in case of disconnections, I've tried so many and they all fail. BTW the ISP is SBC Dial.
 

Answer:Dial Up Connection

If I understand your problem right, there is nothing you can do about it. A lot of dialup ISPs set a max connection time limit. After the time is exceeded, you get disconnected. There is no way around it, just something you have to live with.

If this is not the case, then do this;

Go to the properties of the connection, click on the options tab. Under "Idle Time Before Hanging Up" select never. Then make sure the "Redial If Line is Dropped" box is checked.

Click OK and you're done.

From what I can tell, SBC uses proprietary software, so the above tip might not work.

I used to have Netzero(wasn't my choice), which allows connection durations of 4 hours max. It wasn't easy getting used to it, but eventually I did. Just have to know when you're about to be thrown off so you can plan ahead.
