Modifying Windows XP 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 then "Connect To". Choose "Show All Connections"

In the "Dial" text field change 968-0888 to 18159680888. Once complete, hit the "Dial" button to test (this will also save the new number)
