If you’re an EarthLink Dial-Up customer, you may have manually configured your Windows or Mac computer to connect to the Internet via an internal or external dial-up modem without installing any Internet connection software.
But if you’re a Windows PC user, you do have another option, one that gives you significant additional benefits: EarthLink Access Software.
EarthLink Access Software is our free Internet connection software that helps our dial-up members get online more reliably, surf the Web faster, download email faster, and get the most out of their EarthLink experience.
If you download the dial-up software from our website, here’s what you get:
- Connection manager – helps you connect to the Internet more reliably & manage dial-up access numbers
- EarthLink Accelerator – turbo-charges dial-up Internet surfing up to 7x faster; speeds up email too
- Customizable Start Page – lets you check your email, find access numbers, change Accelerator settings, and provides customizable content such as news, weather, stocks, TV listings & more
- Simple Switch – makes it simple to import your contacts into EarthLink Web Mail
You may not need to import contacts with Simple Switch and may only occasionally use the Start Page, but the Connection Manager and Accelerator included with our EarthLink Access Software are two features that really make connecting to the Internet and surfing with dial-up faster and easier.
Connection Manager will choose the fastest, most reliable dial-up access number for you each time you want to connect to the Internet.
Accelerator automatically speeds up the loading of Web pages as you surf and also helps download email faster.
Our dial-up accelerator is also available as a stand-alone download for both Windows and Mac users.
We encourage all our dial-up customers to download either the full EarthLink Access software or the stand-alone Accelerator.
