Windows ME Making a Dial-Up Networking Connection

Once a Dial-Up Networking connection is configured, you are ready to make the connection:

To establish the connection, double-click
your connection.

Depending on whether you configured to
Connect automatically", you will or will not
get the "Connect To" window.

It allows to verify/modify the Username,
password and the phone-number.

When traveling with a notebook, where you
need to adjust the phone-number due to
different prefixes (for examples to dial
via a switchboard at a hotel), you need
to display this window.

On selecting "Connect" you modems starts dialing.
It will verify with the remote computer your
Username and Password.
You are connected !
To avoid to have to close this window on
future connections, place the checkmark on
"Do not display this message in the future"

You have now in your taskbar the icon for
Dial-Up networking as an indicator of having
a connection (reminding you that to need later
to disconnect ).(
no icon in the taskbar ?)
Place your cursor on it and it displays the
amount of data transferred and the connection

The icon in the taskbar is also a traffic indicator,
showing ingoing and outgoing communication.
To terminate the connection ("to disconnect",
right-Click on the Dial-Up Networking icon
in the taskbar and select : "Disconnect"

If you are NOT getting the icon for
Dial-Up Networking in your taskbar,
select in the window "Dial-Up Networking"
in the menu "Connections" / "Settings"
