Dialup Update - Windows 2000

This tutorial will show you how to update your dialup access number and your username, according to your operating system.

AS OF SEPTEMBER 21, 2007, EARTHNET WILL BE USING THE FULL EARTHNET EMAIL ADDRESS FOR THE USERNAME.

For example, if your username used to be joe123 on your dialup screen,
you will have to use joe123@earthnet.net from now on.

YOUR PASSWORD WILL NOT CHANGE.

Also, you will need to update your dialup access phone number.

New numbers can be found here.

You are welcome to use ANY of these numbers. Of course, you should use a local phone number, so as not to pay for a long distance call.
