Dialup + Broadband

  [DELETED] 11:23 03 Dec 2003

Can you add a dialup connection to a computer that is on broadband.

yes because you use your internal modem on the analogue side of the phone line.

Yes, but you will still need to use the dial-up modem via the phoneline for any dial up connections. You will not be able to use your ADSL/cable modem for anything other than the given connection.

Thats fine.The reason i am asking is because Virgin put an automatically instal program on the desktop and it said it would alter my settings when loaded.Is it OK to go ahead as i don't want to loose my settings for broadband and have to start again.

It will probably only make Dialup your default dialer. Just alter it in tools/internet options/connections Better still enter the dialup parameters manually rather than let Virgin install it as they will probably change your homepage if you do.

Read pj123 posting.Forgot to say thanks for replies.Everything ok apart from a stupid Virgin logo twirling away at top right of screen where it's taken over IE and OE as supplier.
