Dial up-new home number

  [DELETED] 21:33 08 Aug 2003

A simple problem but for the life of me I can't remember how to do it!

A pal in Scotland rung me. He's running ME with a Virgin dial up account. He's moved his PC from his house to his business. Same area code but different number. How does he change his settings to reconnect to the net please?

he shouldnt have to if the area code is the same just plug it in and connect the only problem he may encounter might be he has to dial 9 or some thing to get an outside line

Oh right I was under the impression you had to put in the number that you were dialling from!
Must be something else then as he can't connect at the moment and he doesn't have to put a 9 in to get an outside line.

With some accounts and ISPs you can only connect from one number. If this is the case, your friend will have to get the number changed, and ensure CLI is not witheld.
