====== SDF Dial-up via //Network Connections Wizard// on Windows XP ======
===== Introduction: =====
Although many modems, especially internal WinModems, come with configuration software, using the native //Network Connections Setup Wizard// to configure a dial-up network connection is fairly straightforward and consistent irregardless of the modem hardware. This tutorial illustrates the steps needed for an SDF Dial-up account.
===== Prerequisites: =====
Verify that the modem is installed correctly and that any required modem driver(s) are also installed. If needed, click on //Settings>Control Panel>System// , then select //Hardware>Device Manager// and locate //Modems>your_modem//. Click //Action>Properties//; your modem's multi-tab Properties window will appear. If all is well the Device Status (under the General tab) box will read "This device is working properly". If it is not, consult your modem documentation to understand why. You may need to tweak your modem's settings using other tabs on the Modem Properties window.
===== Basic Setup: =====
Click //Start>Settings>Control Panel>Network Connections>New Connection Wizard//. The "Welcome to the New Connection Wizard" window will appear. Click //Next//. The following illustrates the SDF Dial-up connection creation process for fictional SDF user //mr_retro// using a built-in Lucent WinModem on a computer running Windows XP:

If all is correct click "Dial" to initiate the connection.
Once connected, you can view the connection status and details by clicking on the Network Connection icon in the system tray (just to the left of the clock, lower right-hand corner):
