Don't be confused. Dial-up Networking (DUN) isn't just for ancient modems. It works equally as well with today's internet connected smart phones, wireless modems and access points.
These instructions are for Windows 7, but will be similar in Vista and XP:
- UNINSTALL VZAccess Manager
- Click the Start button, type dial-up
- Click on Set up a dial-up connection
- In the Create a Dial-up Connection window enter #777 in the Dial-up phone number field
- Enter Verizon Wireless, or other in the Connection name field
- Leave the remainder of the fields as default (no username or password needed).
- You're almost done. Now you just have to connect using the network connection you just created. In Windows 7 you can click on the network icon in the system tray (next to the clock) and select Verizon Wireless under Dial-up and VPN.
Or, you may wish to create a shortcut to this connection on your desktop. Open the control panel and manage your network connections. Right click the Verizon Wireless connection to add a shortcut on the desktop.
