Similarly, disable your Ethernet connection (by the same method) when you wish to use Dial-Up networking.
1. At startup, your computer should detect that you have a new device, and will attempt to install the right drivers for it. With the network cards offered by the Computer Store, the automatic configuration by Windows should be correct.
If Windows does not autodetect your new hardware, you will have to add and configure it manually.
To add your new hardware manually, go to the Network applet in Control Panel (accessible from My Computer) and click the "Add..." button. A dialogue will appear, asking you to select the type of component to install. Select "Adapter" and click OK to continue. At the Select Network Adapter screen, select the description which best fits your hardware.
If you bought an ISA Ethernet Card, you will choose D-Link Corporation, D-Link ISA DE220 PnP LAN Adapter. If you bought a PCI Ethernet card, you will select Digital Equipment, PCI Ethernet DECchip 21041 Based Adapter.
Click OK to install your adapter.

Go to the DNS Configuration page, and click "Enable DNS". In the Host box, enter your machine name, which is assigned as carlnet-XX-XXX, where the Xs are the numbers in your IP address.
If your IP is 18.104.22.168, your host name would be carlnet-90-045
In the domain box, enter carleton.ca
In the box below DNS Server Search Order, enter the number 22.214.171.124, and click the "Add" button. Repeat this process for 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
Click the Gateway tab, and in the New Gateway box, enter the first three numbers of your IP Address, followed by a 1 (one).

For the name, enter your EngSoc account login name, and enter your EngSoc password in the Password box. (Note that this is secure, as no one except the server can tell what your password is for Microsoft Networking)
Also note that the latest version of TweakUI can be set to logon for you, automatically at each boot. However, this is a breach of security as outlined in the user agreement, as outlined in section 3.5 about not sharing your password with anyone.
When the computer has finished booting, double-click the Network Neighbourhood icon on the desktop. You should see Entire Network and Lager.
