    Most of the time this is used for traditional internal modem (56k V90 PCI Dial-up Modem) and PSTN internet connection configuration...

    Go to this path "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center" and click on setup a new connection...



    Then click on connect to the internet..



    If your hardware is not ready for the dial up connection it will not be visible here..If you need to create a connection without the hardware setup, you can put a check on "show connection options that this computer is not set up to use" and go ahead...
    Click on dialup ..



    Then define a username password and dial up phone number and you can change default dial up connection name..



    Now you are done...

    And I thought dial up connection was dead. I always thought of it as the slowest internet connection. But that was more than ten years ago when my family had dial up internet.

    Dialup will never die..... Being enhanced with time to time it will come.. Old diaup (PCI 56k V.92 V92 V90 ) will have to die.. if you are having a wimax modem you can just directly plug via cat5e cable to your windows 8 and simply create a dialup..... So you can imagine the speed of wimax dialup ........................

    Yeah, I was thinking of the old dialup back when you heard that really annoying sound of the internet trying to connect over the phone line. I never thought it would still be in use today. I'm surprised of all the improvements.
