View Full Version : Running XP on an iMac but can't stay on the internet

20-10-2009, 07:49 PM
I have an iMac with SnowLeopard on it. The drive is split into 2 with XP running through Boot Camp. I want to connect to TelstraClear through the XP side so that I can access some of the internet sites, the problem is that I can't connect to the internet, and if by some random chance I do, I get kicked off within a minute.
Have I not set up the internet connection properly for a Boot Camp XP? I have used my username, password and the phone number Telstra has provided but still I get kicked off.

Any help out there?

Are you sure you have the internet details correct?

Maybe the Telstra Clear Helpdesk could walk you through it.

Do this on the XP side:

Windows Key+R>cmd>ipconfig>hit enter

Then right click anywhere in cmd>select all>ctrl+C

Then paste it here.

Phone number? Is this a dial up connection?

Sounds like you are using dialup so you will be using an apple modem.
Is it a USB dialup modem
