DSL & Dial-Up Connection

Hello,

I recently upgraded to WinXp from Win98.

I have 2 Internet connections a DSL (PPPOE) and a dial-up connection.

Before upgrading, I was able to use my DSL connection and my dial-up connection at the same time and on the same PC

After upgrading to WinXP I set up my DSL connection and it works fine.  But when I try to connect my dial-up connection it doesn't work.  The Error message says my modem not detected.

I'm using an Exterior Courier Everything for my dial-up and a D-LINK  DSL 3001 for the other.

I even tried deleting my DSL connection to see if the dial-up would work.  And it works fine as long as the DSL isn't installed.

The only thing that seems to be different from Win98 is that I don't use a CD to install the DSL.  My ISP said WinXP doesn't need it.

Once WinXP installs the DSL connection, it's described as a WAN miniport (PPPOE).

So I'm assuming this WAN could be the problem.

Can anyone please suggest how I can set both these connections up using WinXP.

Thank You

Frank Crane

Frank,

Make sure that the modem is detected.

1.  Click Start>Settings>Control Panel
2.  Double click on Phone and Modem Options
3.  Click on Modems
4.  If your modem is not there click on Add, this will bring up a detection wizard.
5.  Once the modem is detected go on to the next step.

Adding a internet connection

1.  Click Start>Settings>Control Panel
2.  Double click on Internet Options
3.  Click on Connections
4.  Click on Setup
5.  Follow the wizard on the method that you will need to connect
6.  You will need the ISP information that you use to connect

Once you set up the dial-up connection you can access it by clicking on Start>Settings>Network Connections

Hope this helps

Ed
