View Full Version : Dial-up Setting

05-09-2002, 02:08 PM
Can anyone please tell me how I can make the alternate dial-up numbers (that you can specify when making/editing a connection properties) visible so that you can select which number to call the ISP with...some of my connections do this by default but I cannot seem to set it up manually for my new account.

I am using Win2K SP3/IE6

Thanks in advance.

Not sure about W2000, but normally Control Panel - Dialup Networking - add new connection. After the details are entered, if you don't have automatic connection, in the dial box you will get a choice of ISP.

You don't have to set up another DUN conection

Go to Control panels/Network connections
Right click on the connection icon and select properties
Under the General tab click on Alternates beside current phone number.
Add you alternate phone numbers here.

Thanks for your reply...I think that you misunderstood my query though. I can add the alternate number but in the dial-up dialogue I cannot select the number that I wish to dial (if for instance one is busy etc...).

I have somehow set up a connection to do this but I want to be able to select the number for my new ISP's connection too but can't figure out how I did it the last time.
