How install DSL on Windows 2k computer that is also used at a work site?
Posted on 2004-09-01
My friend has a laptop that he has from work. He connects via Ethernet at work to the laptop.
I am not sure it is locked down and/or what rights he has to install programs, change IE/proxy settings, etc.. I am sure there is a proxy setting though as I used to work there.
I am not sure he has Admin rights yet.
Recently he got a DSL kit (in the mail) from Bellsouth here in Charlotte with a DSL modem. I assume they put a jack in the wall. Would they not?????????
1. What are the steps to set DSL up on this WIN2k computer in terms of adding a new network place (which selections to choose), etc...?????
-Will PPPOE be there or do I need to download RASPPPOE that I have seen on the Internet?
2. How can he seamlessly (with little effort anyway) have his computer recognize the DSL connection when he gets home from work? Is it a matter of just plugging in the Cable and unchecking the IE USe Proxy Box or are there other things I am missing?
The more detail the better.
Thanks so much
