- 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:
Click on Next.
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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.
