I am looking after a friends house and he has kindly let me have the use of a computer, but I had to configure the settings before I could go online.
How can I tell that I am using an ADSL broadband connection and not a 56k dial up modem. The double screen Internet logo is not visible in the notification area so I am unsure of the connection, but the phone is in use when I am online so I presume all is OK, but I would like to be absolutely sure. He has Windows 98 installed.
Not sure on this. But has the PC was set up for you and not the one normally used, then it may need software installing, and a connection made through a broadband modem of one type or another. But as said above, if you can surf and call at same time, and there are not two telephone lines to the house, you must be using his B/B connection. j.
