Introduction / Basics of ADSL

There are different methods to connect to an ADSL modem, this page documents the connection
via a network card for an ADSL-connection using a Dynamic IP-address:


- install the network card (to be used to connect to the ADSL modem)
- installation / configuration of the ADSL software
- configure the ADSL Connection
- make the Connection to the Internet

There can be some problems with an ADSL-connection (like periodic delays in browsing or
stopping the connection ="hangs up" after a few minutes ) via a network card.

Non Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing for ADSL



Important : Security !

With an ADSL-line, which is usually offered at a flat-rate (24 hours/ 7days per week),
it is even more important to protect your system against unwanted access from the Internet:
test the security (via www.grc.com ):


and install a Personal Firewall.


I like to publish some information on ADSL via USB-modem, so I invite you to send
me some screen-dumps of your network configuration ( contact information )

first used / first download granted bases )
