Hello,
I have Windows Vista and have a DSL connection.  On My XP computer I was able to create a shortcut to the DSL as I use a username and password.  In Vista, how do I set up a DSL connection so I can enter the user name and password of my isp?
Thank you

Follow the instructions here for setting up a PPPoE broadband connection. You should be prompted to enter a UserID and password.  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-a-PPPoE-connection-to-the-Internet
