This tutorial describes in detail how to connect your Windows ME computer to InterStar for the FIRST TIME using the Windows ME Dial-Up Connection Wizard. It is intended for new customers, or current customers who are trying to connect a new machine to InterStar for the FIRST TIME.

For the "IP address", make sure that "Internet service provider automatically provides one" has a black dot next to it. The dot means that it is the selected option. Under "DNS server address" make sure that a black dot is next to "My ISP automatically provides a Domain Name Server (DNS) address"
Enter your InterStar Username and Password. Look closely at the username that you entered. It should look like an email address. If your username is johnsmith, then your username on this screen should look like firstname.lastname@example.org if it doesn't add @intrstar.net to the username.
