An trying to set - up talk talk broadband for someone. They do not have cd (long story) so am trying to install from scratch.

I have installed speedtouch 330 modem no problems, but am a bit confused about the settings. Talk Talk website is useless just refers to cd all the time.

Is there a really simple guide of how to set up, what to tick what not to tick that kind of thing.

Please help!!!!!

Do you know how to get into the setup page? if not I would use the Wizard in Control Panel\Networking New Connection. You will need user name ISP and Password

Have user name and password. How would i find out isp. I have DNS server as 62.24.199.20.

Been going to internet connections and then set up new connection. Then says connect to find isp providers in your area but come up with error each time.

It will come up with error as it does not have the User or Password name to check with. That why I said use the Setup New Connection Wizard in Networking For ISP just put in TalK Talk

They should have given all the info you need including your E-Mail address

so i should be using network connection wizard not internet connection wizard. This is where i was going wrong.
