Entering Your Information In SetInfo

SetInfo makes the process of configuring all your programs easy. It takes the information that you give to it and writes it into all the programs that you use with your Texas.Net account. Read below for some tips on entering your information.


SetInfo Guide

  1. After your computer has rebooted, go to the TexasNet Internet program group and double-click on the SetInfo icon. The SetInfo dialog box will appear.
  2. Enter the information. Real Name is what you would like people to see as your e-mail name. The Login and Password entries can be found on your confirmation packet. The two Nickname areas are for use in the chat rooms of IRC. Make sure you have your version of Windows selected and then click on Next Page.
  3. You will now be on the Modem/Dialing Info tab. Select the COM port that your modem is on. If you are using Windows 3.1 (and not Windows 3.11) and you have a 28.8 kbps or higher modem, make sure that you have Cybercomm Drivers checked under Comm Drivers. Otherwise, keep it on Windows Drivers.
  4. Select the city that you are calling from as well as your modem type. If you have a 33.6 kbps modem, select 28800 as your modem type.
  5. If you have call-waiting or you need to dial a number to access an outside line, check the appropriate box.
  6. If you have a 14.4, 28.8 or 33.6 kbps modem, choose Default for 14400/28800 under Modem Baud Rate. Otherwise, choose Other and type in your modem's baud rate. Click on the Next Page button when you are finished.
  7. Make sure that PAP is selected under Trumpet Login Technique. When finished, click on the Save & Exit button. If you switched to the Cybercomm drivers, you will be prompted to restart the computer. When finished, you my need to update your phone number.

Updating The Dial-Up Number

  1. After the reboot, double-click on the Trumpet Winsock icon. This will open the Trumpet Winsock screen.
  2. From the menu, select Dialler and then Setup.cmd.
  3. A window will enter with a phone number in it. Check the chart below to determine the correct phone number for your dial-in location and your modem type. Phone numbers can be found on your Startup Kit or on our Contact Info page.
  4. If the phone number needs to be changed, remove the number currently in the window. If you disabled call waiting or if you need to dial 8 or 9 to get an outside line, leave that part of the number. Enter the correct number.
  5. Click OK. Look at the login name that appears next. It should be the same as you entered in the SetInfo program, but with a capital P in front of it. Click OK again. You will get a password screen with a string of asterisks in it. Just click OK one last time.

Now you can download Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator or you may review our instructions on using our software to download and install a copy of Netscape Navigator.
