Default Bypass modem ?

I'm trying to run DSL on my win98 machine.

Apparently I have some problem with the Dial up Network files or somethng.

When discussing this with someone they mentioned that I might be able to
just go directly thru the DSL and not go via the Dial up and the Modem ...

They said something like go to i.e. tools or under connectivity and choose
"never use dial up"

When I went there I did't seem to have that option, I could select "use LAN or connect directly" I tried this but it didn't seem to work.

So back to the origianl question can and how do I bypass the dial up and or modem ?

You may have to get a setup CD from your ISP. I believe that in 98, you can just cilck start > run and type "inetwiz" then click ok.
This will bring up the internet connection wizard. Try setting it up to run off of a LAN. Has your DSL ever worked?

If you are using DSL, that means you are using your network card. So you dont need your modem. So to disable it from trying to dial up, you need to open up IE and click on tools - internet options - connections. Make sure it is net to 'Never Dial A Connection' then hit your LAN Settings and make sure that you have no proxy server in there (unless your ISP requires one)

I've tried to set up via the lan, don't remember about the proxy though.

I'll try again.

I did go thru the lan set up though seemed to work but no connection.
