Interested in operning IE 6 using DSL broadband connection to router with pc configured for dial-up network
Posted on 2008-10-04
I am interested in checking out a friend's Internet Explorer 6 browser which is configured with a dial-up network using DSL broadband. I know this pc has router and internet connection as confirmed using ping test. However, whenever I double click on IE, I automatically get a dial-up network box indicating the server name it is trying to dial but never connects. Of course, the reason it never connects using the dial-up connection through the browswer likely is due to the access number being used from her particular location considering she lives in a different county from me.
Any help getting the browswer to open using the DSL connection will be appreciated. I thought about trying out a few things, but, I did not want to corrupt or make her dial-up network settings invalid.
I look forward to hearing from everyone.
