Connection Problems

A friend of mine has dial up internet access.

When she connects it says page cannot be found and at the bottom it says cannot find server.

Has anybody got any suggestions?

As the Modem connected OK if it as then it will be more than likely a IE problem what OS

Not sure what oe, probably 98!

What kind of IE problem could it be?

Simple way to see if its dialing out ok is to dial a mobile phone using phone dialer.

Check that the web brouser is working online.
Click file and then down the bottem Work Offline should be unticked.
