Description: The article is about frontier mail login. The author shows the process of installing the DSL service in his home. He shows how to do it by yourself and what the problems you may meet when you are doing the installation.
You can take a look at what we get today. We got a DSL setup kit. Let’s get started,let’s get inside where it’s warm. You should open your DSL package very carefully. There are DSL filters. This is a welcome letter from frontier telling me how glad they are to have me as a customer which will last all five minutes. This is a QuickStart guide.
When you’re setting this up,you should disconnect your internet router,I am definitely going to use a sacrificial computer for this next part because I’d rather not install their software package on my equipment. In general I don’t like to do those things.
I hope it isn’t the first sign of things not doing very well,this is a wireless router with a four port switch built into it. I explicitly asked that they only send me a basic DSL modem. I have to phone them up and see if I can get that rectified because their routers are way behind the times,I’d rather not use it.
It looks like the basic hardware installation from the phone jack over there. This router is setup and completed. Now I’ve got a Dell Dimension 2100. I can loan it out to my customers when their computers are being worked on. If something happens to them,it’s no big deal,I don’t remember what’s on this machine,I think it has a copy of Windows XP,I don’t know that for absolutely sure.
I’m probably going to have to go into safe mode to set up the display resolution. It says no operating system. I’m going to load windows on. This old thing is a VGA only monitor,I was going to use this NEC flat panel that was given to me,I was told that it works,but either it doesn’t or something happens because it’s dead to the world.
Hopefully a VGA only monitor is sufficient to get through Windows XP setup and I can set up my internet connection and I can put everything in place I want to have and disconnect the cable stuff. We can follow their instruction,that tells you how to do everything,there are some very interesting things on here,I love the illustration of a power Macintosh 8500.
I love the run internet explorer reference which is only relevant to those who are on Windows or are using Internet Explorer to begin with. I don’t know what you’re supposed to do if you’re on a Macintosh or a Linux machine,they don’t want to hear from you then.
We’ll see what happens in about 45 minutes. This is time for the real test. Windows is going to enter its graphical phase of setup. It looks like it might work. It is amazing. I think you can do the initial Windows XP installation on a VGA or barely SVGA monitor.
There’s windows XP up and running. It looks a little more like Windows should look. He always has a habit of showing up no matter what I’m doing. That’s a lot better than Windows is supposed to look. I haven’t gone through the frontier setup process so I may not have an internet connection. I guess we’ll find out.
I’ll have to run through that first. It’s about what you’d expect. This is the instructions in the URL that they tell you to hit in their directions,it doesn’t seem to work but I was able to get to the point by going straight to frontier.com. They’re making me install registration software on the computer. It’s a real good thing that I had a sacrificial computer on hand. My transfer rates are looking real good.
I had to get off the phone with frontier because I needed to put this thing,apparently they don’t provide a simple modem anymore,they provide these wireless router,I don’t understand why these things are stuck at a 2001 error level of technical advancement. They don’t seem to support anymore wireless security than WEP,it is easily broken.
I needed to get this thing put into bridge mode,I knew how to do myself but for some reason I couldn’t,I couldn’t get an IP address. The MAC address of my wireless router is different from the computer that I used to do the setup. I had to deal with that problem as well. But I called them up and they got things taken care of. The only thing to do is to go ahead and try uploading something and say goodnight to cable if everything works. I think it will.
