Instructions on how to setup a dial-up connection in Windows XP
Begin by clicking on the Start button in the bottom left side of your desktop. Then move the mouse over to Control Panel and click (as seen below).
This will open the Control Panel window. This is where you make most changes on your system. The next step is to click on the Network icon (pictured below).
Double click on the Icon labelled Network Connections. This will bring up the window you see below. Double click on the icon labelled New Connection Wizard.
The New Connection Wizard will walk you through setting up a dial-up connection to GreenNet. Begin by clicking Next, located on the bottom right (seen below).
Next you will see the Network Connection Type window. Select Connect to the Internet by clicking in the circle next to it (as seen below). Click the Next button on the bottom right to continue.
This will take you to the Getting Ready window. You will see three choices there (as seen below). Please select the middle one labelled Set up my connection manually and then click Next.
The next window (seen below) is labelled Internet Connection. You will want to select the first option, Connect using a dial-up modem. Then click Next to continue.
This window is called Connection Name. Just type in GreenNet as seen below and click Next.
Now we should be in the Phone Number to Dial screen you see below. Just type in 0844 055 7071 as seen below. Once this is completed, click Next.
Next is the Internet Account Information screen. In this screen you will be adding in the Username and Password provided to you in your welcome letter. The username should be your whole GreenNet email address, including @gn.apc.org. Then type in your password and make sure that the top two boxes below that are checked. Then click Next.
This should be the last window, labelled Completing the New Connection Wizard. In this window all you need to do is review what it says and then check the box labelled Add a shortcut to this connection to my desktop. Click finish and you are done.
Congratulations! You are ready to use your Dialup. There should now be an Icon on your desktop. Just double click on the Icon to connect. After you are connected, just double click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and you will be on the web.
