ADSL via Network Card : Win2k- Installation / Configuration of the ADSL software (win2000)

Once you have install the network card and connected to the ADSL-modem, you are
ready to install the ADSL connection software (very similar to
Windows95/98/ME) :
You may have a different software, but the basics should be similar:

My Internet provider is
using "
no questions asked,
just a restart is required

After the restart, the Properties of "My Network Places" will show an additional Connection,
which is indicated as "inactive" with the red cross , there could also be a similar icon in your
taskbar :

For a better identification of the
network connections, I suggest
to rename this connection to a
name similar to the installed
adapter, in my example:
Enternet P.P.P.o.E Adapter::

You need also to display the
"Properties" of this connection

To prevent access from the Internet to your system, un-check "File and Printer Sharing".
There is no need to make any change to the TCP/IP protocol, since you will receive all required
TCP/IP parameters on establishing the ADSL-connection from the
DHCP-server of your Internet

You are ready to
configure your ADSL connection.
