For your Windows 95 Clients, if they are using Internet Explorer before 4.0
then goto Start > Programs > Accessories > Internet Tools > and Click either
"Get on the Internet" or "Internet Connection Wizard".
With IE 4.0 and above, goto Start > Programs > Internet Explorer (Folder not
Program) > and Click "Connection Wizard"

While going through your installation, if you have your IP Address and DNS
automatically assigned, make sure you leave it as is, otherwise change to
your appropriate IP numbers. The Wizard PROPERLY sets up a Windows client
to connect to an ISP. If you use the Dial-Up Networking's "Make A New
Connection" You WILL have problems. In that case, you must edit the
properties of your connection and goto server types. Make sure you ONLY
have "Use Software Compression" and "TCP/IP" Enabled.

NEVER Make Direct changes to the Control Panel > Network > TCP/IP (Dial-Up
Adapter). This will mess up for clients with multi connections. Always edit
your properties via the Dial-Up Networking.

If you need any help, you can e-mail me directly or call me

We have been an ISP working with Win95 for the past 2 years now... and we
have users usually up and runnning in under 2 minutes with the Connection
