3 Simple Solutions
For Common Dial-Up Connection Problems
Dial-up connection problems are frustrating, but they're usually very simple to resolve. If you ever have trouble connecting with your dial-up modem, remember these quick fixes.

1. Check all cords & cables: Is your phone line securely plugged into both the modem and the wall jack? If your modem is external, are all connections to your computer and the modem's power source snug?

2. Double-check your username & password: Your username and password are both case sensitive, so make sure that your Caps Lock is off and retype both. If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it here. (Allow up to 20 minutes to activate.)

3. Restart your computer: Turn your computer off for 30 seconds, and then power it up again. This can reset software that may be frozen.

If Your Modem Still Won't Connect: Go to to initiate a chat session with a Technical Support Representative, or give us a call at 1-888-EarthLink. You may be experiencing hardware failure or another issue requiring expert troubleshooting.
