  1. Double click the My Computer icon located on your Desktop.

  2. From the new window double click on Dial-Up Networking.

  3. Select your modem type and give the connection a name you will easily remember (such as Freeola or My Internet). Click the Next button.

  4. At the prompt type in the dial up internet phone number, 0845 123 2035 and click Next.

  5. Check that the name of the dial up connection is okay then click Finish. This will create an icon in your Dial-Up Networking folder with that name.

  6. The following optional stage may speed up modem connecting times but there is no obligation to complete this stage. Right click on the connection icon you just created and choose Properties, this will open the connection properties box. Click on the Servers tab and untick Log on to Network, NETBUI and IPX.
