As far as I know, you must use the netzero software to connect. Use firefox once you are connected.

You must use the the username in the net-zero software as stated in the reply before. Other thing is that it depends where you live. For example over here in Israel they have free internet service just by connecting the number 010 800800 with no user name or password and poof youre connected free. In an other words you cant use your netzero username to access the 10 hour free internet. That 10 hour free internet probably has a special username and password and dialing number so that you can connect. HOPE THIS HELPS

Did you get to fill-in your info upon starting the install process? If not and tend to go immediately when the Netzero is started, it may not have you listed to connect and sometimes that conection actually can take awhile. Part of the install process if in US, you must add "telephony" info. In other words contect using the 10-digit number to access. Do that under the telephony icon under control panel AND when installing Netzero's setup to use 10-digit calling. If this is your first time calling, then more likely you didn't setup properly, you have tell Netzero, you areacode, etc. proceed. If you already have been a Nerzero user and such, you may have already exceeded your free 10-hr. limit and it won't proceed, you're done depending on the free service in your area. Netzero, does have a simple FAQ to review at thier website provided you can access it, plus review your status, you still need email/username to enter that area of it.
