If you know which dialer you need goto Start, control pannel, network connection, and delete any other connection to the phone line that are present. Except of course your correct connection.

Yes, link to the shot on your computer, don't tick resize or if you do size to 17" monitor and click host it. After loading you will be presented with a page with various URLs, choose the 'show to friends' one and copy it.
