26.) To make sure your dialer is configured correctly, double click on the CVC Internet icon. This will bring up a screen asking you for your user name and password. If your dialer is set correctly, the screen will indicate that it is connected and the speed of your modem. If it not set correctly it will show a error message. Remember you will not see CVC Internet site until you have your browser configured. (If the server sends you a message indicating that your username and/or password is invalid, check to see if both user name and password are in lower case, and make sure @cvc.net is Not part of your username or password.)

27.) If your modem does not connect with the server, go back through the Dial-up settings and make sure everything is correct. If your settings, user name and password are all correct, but you still are unable to connect to the Internet, close down your computer system and restart. Once your desktop comes back up click on the CVC Internet icon, and try to log on again. If everything fails, check to see if your modem is configured correctly. If the modem is not configured, contact your computer distributor and/or computer repair shop to get your modem fixed. CVC Internet is only responsible for providing Internet access. If you equipment or programs are not working correctly, you will need to contact the appropriate people to fix the problems. Once your dialer is working correctly, Do Not Change Your Settings! This will only cause you unnecessary problems.
