First click on the Start button, go to Control Panel, and select Network Connections. Click on Create a new connection under Network Tasks. This will begin the Wizard.
Click Next at the Welcome to the New Connection Wizard screen.
Choose Connect to the Internet at the Network Connection Type screen and click Next.
Choose Set up my connection manually at the Getting Ready screen and click Next.
Choose Connect using a dial-up modem at the Internet Connection screen and click Next.
At the Connection Name screen enter North Penn Access for the ISP Name and click Next.
At the Phone Number to Dial screen enter the phone number for North Penn Access XXX9000 and click Next. The “XXX” in the Phone number text box is for your exchange (ex. 549, 537,…).
You will then be prompted for your User name and Password. User name is the user ID that you picked when you established your account with North Penn Access. Both of these fields are case sensitive. You will also want to be careful not to put an extra space before or after either of them because it will be considered part of the field by North Penn Access’s servers and will cause your connection to fail. Check all three of the boxes on this screen after you confirm your password and click Next.
The setup of your Internet connection is almost complete. Just check the Add a shortcut to this connection to my desktop and click Finish.
Now the wizard is complete and there is an option to Dial immediately. Just verify that your username, password, and phone number are correct and then click Dial. For future Internet connections there will be a shortcut on your desktop named North Penn Access. Use this shortcut to open a connection and then open your default browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape…) or email client (Outlook Express, Netscape…).
