Setup Dial-Up for Vista

Dial up internet connection is a type of internet connection that requires a standard phone line. To set up a dial up internet connection, often times, one requires a software driver and a telephone, which in this case, is your modem. In some instances, the Windows operating system's network utility is the software that controls the modem.

If there is a software driver in the kit that comes along with your phone, then the first thing is to get it installed. Don't connect your modem until you've finished installing your software driver. Disable your antivirus and firewalls until installation is complete before you enable them again. DO NOT SURF THE NET WITHOUT YOUR ANTIVIRUS AND FIREFOX ENABLED.

Follow these steps to setup a dial up internet connection in Vista:

1. Click on the start menu
