    * If you do not see Connect To instead open the Control Panel and select Network Connections.

  2. Select Create a new connection from the left panel of the Network Connections window.

  3. This will launch the New Connection Wizard. Click on Next.

  4. Select Connect to the Internet. Click on Next to proceed.

  5. Choose Set up my connection manually. Click on Next.

  6. Select Connect using a dial-up modem. Click on Next.

  7. Type eNet for your ISP Name. Click on Next.

  9. Enter your username and password. Please note that the system is case-sensitive so watch out for that CAPS LOCK key! We recommend selecting the first two options:

    • Use this account name and password when anyone connects to the internet from this computer (This allows all user accounts to share the same internet connection).
    • Make this the default Internet connection (Windows will automatically dial this connection when you attempt to connect to the internet).
    • Turn on Internet Connection Firewall (Using XP's in-built firewall is optional - if you experience any connection difficulties we advise unselecting this option.)
    Click on Next.

  10. You may optionally select to Add a shortcut to this connection to your desktop. This will give you a convenient and easy way of connecting to eNet by adding a connection icon to your desktop. Click on Finish.

  11. You may now use your new internet connection! To access your new connection either click on the shortcut to eNET icon on your desktop or go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > eNET. Click on Dial. Once connected you can use a browser such as Internet Explorer to surf the web and check your email with an e-mail client such as Outlook Express.
