  Dial-up Networking Setup
 
Step 1

Step 2
In the box enter the name 99main and then click Next>

 
Step 3
You will now see a screen with three check boxes inside. Make sure that you check I am calling the Internet and also Send my plain text password if that's the only way to connect. Verify that the last check box is NOT checked then click Next> on the bottom of the window.

 
Step 4
Next step is to choose an access number closest to you without having to dial long distance. To test this pick up your normal phone and try a few numbers that may work for you. If after you dial an number without having to dial long distance you can hear a modem squealing at the other end you have the correct number for your location.

Your password is the same that you chose when you first signed up with 99main. Leave the box labeled Domain: empty. It is important that both your user name and password are in lower case letters and that there are no spaces contained in them.
