    Is it possible to have more than 1 isp on a cp, Our local libary has a free isp if you are a member. I am currently enrolled with localnet out of buffalo ny.

    I would like to test the free one but wonder if it would cause conflicts,

    Thanks

    Do you mean a dial-up account?

    Yes it is a dial up, which is what I have with local net. I guess I could delete localnet and reinstall it if the new isp wasn't satsifactory.

    Thanks

    I haven't used dial up in years but if I remember, you should get the option to dial either number, hence you can have both installed on the same comp.:)

    You can create as many DUN entries as you like, I used to have three dial-up accounts on one computer before I had broadband. Just create a new connection and follow the prompts. It won't affect the other DUN at all.
