ADSL via Network Card : Windows2000 Installation of Network card

If you are connecting to your ADSL modem via a Network card, then there a few items
to check / watch when installing this network card BEFORE installing the ADSL-software itself,
for Windows 2000 (there is a
different setup for Windows95/98/ME ) :

If you have currently a modem
connection to the Internet, it
should be configure with an
un-check "File-and-Printer
" (to prevent access from
the Internet to your system).

If you have a local network (LAN), then you will need to check it:
since we will install for the connection to the ADSL-modem a second network adapter,
you MUST use on the local network TCP/IP with fixed IP-addresses
( you can not use anymore the Windows 2000 AutoIP-Address generation )

Install the network card, to be used to connect to the ADSL-modem.

The new network card will
be listed as additional
connection in the Properties
of "Network places".

To better identify it, you
can rename it to a name
explaining the usage:

You have also to check
the "Properties"

To prevent connection from the Internet to your system, un-check "File and Printer Sharing".
There is no need to define any value for the TCP/IP protocol.

You are now ready to
install the ADSL connection software.
