Modifying The Rock River Internet 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.


Open the Rock River Internet dialer by double clicking on the icon on your desktop. Once open you will see a window similar to the one below:

Click on the "Properties" button. You will see a window like the one pictured below.In the text box next to "To access an outside line, dial (Local)" type 1815 into that box. If you have done this correctly the "Dial As" string at the bottom of this window will read 1 815 968-0888. When you are done click OK

The "Number to dial" should read 1 815 968-0888 as pictured below. If it does no repeat the previous steps. Once the dial string is correct click "Connect" to test and save your settings.
