My internet access at home has been nonexistent of late. My computer up and decided not to dial up anymore. I bought an XP-based HP desktop from a girl who'd just graduated from GaTech and was leaving the country. She used a cable modem, so she never had to use the regular modem.

I've attempted to install Earthlink but I get connection errors when the software attempts to dial up to Earthlink's servers.

It's been incredibly frustrating. You don't have to be a mechanic to drive a car. Why must you become an engineer just to use your computer?

I'm fed up. I've wasted enough fruitless evenings trying to fix this myself. It's time to seek professional help instead of steaming in aggravation.

Addendum: I do plan to go hi-speed - eventually. Right now I just want to be able to @#$%&! dial up.

I think it's time for ATLbloggers.net to come to the rescue. People, we've got a lot of geeks!

seriously. call the earthlink tech support. They really are good. When my laptop decided to misbehave they were amazingly helpful. Like the old mindspring folk.
