1. Connections

A. Dial-Up

Q: What is the local dialup number?
A: All dialup numbers can be found here.

Q: I keep getting an incorrect user name or password error what can I do?
A: Be sure to have @isdn.net following your username. (username@isdn.net) Also try retyping in your password. Sometimes a stray keystroke can be entered in the password box causing the error. Currently usernames are not case sensitive, but passwords are.

Q: I keep getting a no dial tone error, what causes this?
A: Usually no dial tone errors are caused by the phone line being plugged into the incorrect port on the computer. Connect a regular phone to the line to confirm dial tone. Make sure the phone line is plugged into the Line port on the modem. If this still continues, try a different cable. It is possible if this does not work that the modem or jack could be bad.
