What You Need to Get Started:

          Your VividNET user name and password
          Your Win95 CD-Rom or disks (in some cases)

          A list of VividNET Modem Dial-up numbers
Step 1: Verify that Dial-up Networking is Installed
From the Win95 desktop, double-click on My Computer and there should be a folder called Dial Up Networking. If there is, then you can proceed to step 2. If not, here are instructions for creating it.


Step 2: Verify that the Dial-up Adapter and TCP/IP Protocol are Installed
Press the  Start  button, select Settings..., then Control Panel. Double-click the Network icon. You should see a dialog box like this. Make sure the Configuration tab is selected. Both Dial-Up Adapter and TCP/IP should be present (like in the screen shot), then you're ready to proceed to step 3. If they are not, click for instructions on installing...


Step 3: Set up a Connection Icon
Open up My Computer from the desktop and double-click the Dial-Up Networking icon. Double-click the Make New Connection icon. This will walk you through the Make New Connection wizard. Click here to view a screen shot of this.

Type in VividNET for the name of the computer you will dial into. Your modem (which should have been configured when you installed Windows 95) should be shown in the Select a modem: area. Choose Configure if you wish to check modem related settings. (If you have a 28.8 speed modem or above, use 115,200 for the Connection speed. If 14.4 modem, use 57,600).

Click the Next  button in the Make New Connection wizard. Enter your local access phone number. If you did not receive one at sign up, visit http://www.VividNET.com/html/ppp.phtml to look one up. Verify with the operator that the number is indeed local to you before using.
Press the Finish button and your icon will be created.


Step 4: Setting the Dial-Up Properties
Select your newly-created connection icon, press the right mouse button and choose Properties... with a normal left click.

Press the Server Type... button. You'll get the Server Types dialog box. Uncheck everything except Enable Software Compression and TCP/IP. You should have a screen that looks like this  Next click on the TCP/IP Settings button and make sure you have the following. At the top, Server Assigned  IP Address should be chosen. The next section, for Name Server, should also be Server Assigned . If you have trouble connecting (protocol errors) then try selecting Specify Name Server and enter the following for the Primary and Secondary numbers. Use your mouse to tab between sections:

Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:

No entries are needed for WINS Configuration so leave those as zeros. Make sure the Use IP Header Compression and Use default Gateway boxes are checked, then click OK until you get back out to the VividNETnet icon you created. If you would like, you can put a shortcut to this on your desktop by right-clicking on the VividNETnet icon, then choose create shortcut.
Step 5: Dialing in and Getting Connected
Double-click your session icon that you recently made. You'll get the Connect To window Put your username and password in the appropriate text areas. These should be entered with username at lower case only, the password may be case sensative depends on the way it is set-up with VividNET and be sure you don't have @VividNET added to your username. Click Connect to start the dialup process. Once a connection is made, you can startup your browser and you should be on the net! If you would like to tie your dialer directly to the browser - so the Connect To window automatically comes up when double-clicking the browser - go into your Control Panel under the My Computer icon, then double click on the Internet icon. Go To the Connections tab, and make sure to choose Connect to the Internet as Needed, and select VividNET as the Dial Up to use. The next time you restart your computer double clicking the browser icon  on the deskto to start the dial up process.
