Technical Dial-Up Questions
Frequently Asked Technical Questions
My computer does not have Internet access, how do I get started?
You can sign up from any computer connected to the Internet, (the Library, at work, or a friend's house).
What are your DNS (Domain Name Server) addresses?
You do not need to enter any DNS servers, they will be obtained automatically when you log on to our network.
How do I transfer my existing service to a new or second computer?
You simply would follow our detailed instructions on our Support page to setup your second computer to connect to our service.
I have a 56K Modem, how come I cannot connect at 56K?
All of our access numbers are V90/56K. However, you will never connect at 56K, this is a theoretical speed. In reality, analog throughput is limited to a maximum of 53kbps per FCC regulations and in real live conditions speed may be lower and fluctuate.
The connection speed is very dependent on the phone line quality, the hardware/software and the environmental conditions.
You should try different access numbers in your local calling area, in addition to trying to connect again and see if you get a better speed at a different time. The time of day may affect the speed you connect at as well.
I have a Macintosh / Linux / Playstation 2 / WebTV etc. Can I still use your service?
Yes, there are no restrictions on what operating system or device you use with our service.
I have a PDA or a Pocket PC. Can I still use your service?
Yes, you can use our dial-up Internet service with your PDA or Pocket PC.
How will I know if someone calls me while I am online?
