Modifying Windows 98 Dialer To Accomodate New Dialing Rules

Due to an increase in demand for telephone numbers, the Illinois Commerce Commision approved the addition of a new area code, 779, for the same geographic area as the 815 area code. Beginning February 17, 2007, all calls dialed with 7 digits within the 815 area code will require 1 + 10 digit dialing using 1 + area code + 7 digit telephone number. To ensure your dialup internet service with Rock River Internet will work after this change please get a head start by following the steps below to modify your windows dialier.


Go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Communications -> Dial-Up Networking. This will bring up a window that looks like the following:

Double click on the icon for your Rock River Internet dialup connection. Once the "Connect To" window is up type 1815 in front of the existing 9680888 as shown. Click connect to test and save these settings.
