Inernet Connections?

by Jo1011 / June 4, 2008 3:54 AM PDT

For the last 3 weeks, I have been bouncing back and forth between my dial-up, here at home, and wireless at my uncles. For the last week now I have not been able to connect to my dial -up here at home, but I can still connect to the wireless. I am assuming it is something in my settings that need to be adjusted? Can anyone help me? Here is the discription of what I have for a laptop.

Windows Edition= Windows Vista Home Premium
Manufacturer= Toshiba
Processor=Intel(R) Core(TM) 2CPU T5500@1.66GHz 1.67GHz
Memory(RAM)= 2038MB
System type= 32-bit Operating System

Network adapers= 6TO4 Adapter
Intel(R)PRO/Wireless 3954AGB Network Connection
Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC(NDIS6.0)

I keep getting error message 680, stating no dial tone, as soon as i plug in my phone line. Then error message 764 comes up, that states, no smart card. Or do I need a new Modem?

A new problem also just starting is my mouse touch pad is not responding? Any soultions, suggestions, would greatly be appreciated.

Open IE, Tools, Internet Options. Click Connections. Notice the boxes for connection? For dial up, check the box, "Always dial my default connection". For wireless check "Never dial a connection". Switch back and forth depending on your location.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
