Internet dial-up connection configuration in Windows 95
This text is intended for helping
with configuration of dial-up connection to Internet through Inicia.
What you need:
- a telephone line
- a modem (we recommend at least 28800
- software for web browsing (usually
Internet Explorer or Netscape) and for reading and writing e-mail
(Outlook Express, Netscape, Pegasus Mail)
- Windows installation CD-ROM (not
necessary if everything needed is already installed or you have a
copy of it on your hard disk)
After connecting the modem to computer port (or installing the internal
one) go to "My computer", "Control
Panel", "Modems", "Add".
Windows should be able to detect the modem type automatically. If it
doesn't detect correct modem type and you have floppy disk with drivers
for your modem than select "Change"
and "Have Disk" and install the
modem drivers from floppy disk.
the modem go to "Properties" of
that modem and in "Connection"
disable the "Wait for dial tone before
dialing" check box, because modems may have problems with
detecting dial tone on czech tel. lines.

Computer", "Control Panel"
and "Network". If the "Dial-up
adapter" is not listed in installed components then choose "Add",
"Adapter" and again "Add".
Find "Microsoft" in the list of
manufacturers and "Dial-Up Adapter"
in the list of adapters. Windows will install some protocols and clients
for Microsoft Network that you don't need. We recommend to leave only
the "Dial-Up Adapter" in
installed componnents list and delete others using "Remove"
and install the TCP/IP protocol using "Add",
manufacturer "Microsoft" and
protocol "TCP/IP". Windows may
want the installation CD-ROM (if you don't have o copy of it on your

Internet. Press the right mouse button on the created icon Inicia

Choose "Properties" and in "General"
check the "Server Type" - it
should be PPP. Than there should be enabled only the "Enable
