Links on this page:  Add Dial-Up Adapter | Add TCP/IP | Add Client for Microsoft Networks |

Click My Computer then Control Panel and finally click Network .

 

You will be at the Network screen below.

You need to make sure that a Dial-up Adapter is installed with TCP/IP protocols. Without these, you'll never get connected to the Internet.  Also, Client for Microsoft Networks needs to be installed and set as the Primary Network Login.  Without this, many programs such as Outlook Express, FrontPage, or BrowseBlast may not function properly.  Once the Client for Microsoft Networks is installed, you'll notice the Network Neighborhood icon on your desktop.

In summary, your Internet connection needs the following 3 components installed:
    Client for Microsoft Networks  (Also, set as "Primary Network Logon" below the Add/Remove/Prop buttons)
    Dial-Up Adapter
    TCP/IP -> Dial-Up Adapter

Click Add to install any of these 3 components. 

 

Adding the Dial-up Adapter:

After clicking the Add button above, the following screen appears.  Select Adapter, then click Add.

Select Microsoft on the left.  Then select Dial-Up Adapter on the right.  Click OK.

 

Adding TCP/IP:

After clicking the Add button on the Network Configuration tab, the following screen appears.  

Select Protocol, then click Add.

Select Microsoft on the left.  Then select TCP/IP on the right.  Click OK.

 

Adding the Client for Microsoft Networks:

After clicking the Add button on the Network Configuration tab, the following screen appears. 

Select Adapter, then click Add.

Select Microsoft on the left.  Then select Client for Microsoft Networks on the right.  Click OK.

 

Once you've finished adding any of the 3 components that were missing, click OK.
!! ONLY Click OK IF you have your Windows CD or .cab files !! -- 

 

If using .cab files, the following error will pop up after clicking OK.  It's looking for your CD-ROM, which you aren't using.  Just click OK to continue.

 

The following screen is asking where your .cab files are stored.  In the "Copy files from" box, type the path to the folder where the .cab files are stored.  This is the path you found by going to Start->Find as described above in the section on finding .cab files.
Note:  Many computers have these stored in "C:\Windows\Options\Cabs".

 

From our example, the .cab files were in C:\WIN98.  The example below shows this typed in.

Click OK.  You will see files being copied, after which you will be asked to restart.

 

Click Yes to restart your computer.

 

After restarting, you will need to create a new DUN connection.

It is recommended that you use the inetwiz to make the new connection.

Alternatively, you can use the Make New Connection icon in DUN.  Click here for help with that.
