1. From the Windows98 desktop, go to 'My Computer' and find the 'Dial-Up Networking' folder. If it is not there then it must be installed from the Windows 98 CD-ROM before proceeding further. Double-click on the 'Make New Connection' icon. 2. You'll see the screen below appear. In the box marked below, 'Type a name for the computer you are dialling' - call it 'Plusnet'. Windows should already have your modem configured correctly. Click on 'Next'. You'll be taken to the next screen. 3. In the box marked in the screenshot below, 'Type the phone number for the computer you want to call'. Enter the Internet connection number for your Plusnet account. You can find the number for your account on the 'Connection Guide' support page. If the area code field is grey, you may enter the entire access number, including the area code and any prefix you may need in the 'Telephone number' box (for example 1471,0845,142300). Please make sure that you use the correct dial-in number after you have signed up. This will ensure that you receive maximum speed and appropriate call charges. 4. Click on 'Next'.. ..you'll see that you have now created a new connection. Yours will be called Plusnet. Click now on 'Finish'. 5. You will notice that a new icon has appeared in the Dial-Up Networking Folder called 'Plusnet'. The properties of this connection should now be checked in order to ensure a successful and reliable connection. Right click on the 'Plusnet' icon and select 'Properties'. The 'General' screen confirms the details that have already been entered. If you ever wanted to change the telephone access number then this is where the new number would be entered. 6. As well as the General Tab, you'll see Server Types, Scripting and Multilink. Select the 'Server Types' tab - the others are not important here. . The 'Type of Dial-Up Server' should read 'PPP..' and then list your Operating System. 'Advanced Options' should only have 'Enable software compression' selected and 'Allowed network protocols' should only have 'TCP/IP' selected. Click OK and then OK again to return to the Dial-Up Networking screen. 7. Double click on the 'Plusnet' icon with your left mouse button. Enter your Plusnet username and password, then press the connect button. The modem will dial the number we specified earlier (this will be shown in the phone number field below) and you should be connected to Plusnet within a few seconds.
