Why does my E-mail get stuck
Most email programs
cannot handle emails and/or attachments much larger
than 500kb. If you regularly transfer large files, we
do not recommend sending them via email. Doing so may
also cause problems with your friend's email server
if they do not accept large email, and the message
might get bounced back to you. You could use your
personal web space to place your files there for
others to download. See Creating
a Homepage for
Why does my connection seem
If you are browsing a
web page, the speed is limited by the slowest point
in the connection between your modem and the site you
are accessing. That's usually not Comcation, since we
have multiple T1 connections to the Internet. Old
phone lines between your modem and our equipment may
result in a slower connection, also if the file is
routed through a slow point on the Internet (for
example, a very busy router), it may take several
extra seconds to reach you. During peak usage hours
on the Internet, all communications may take longer
to reach their destination.
How do I save my pasword in
my Dial-Up connection in Windows 95?
Please Note: It is
suggested that you back-up all important data before
changing any configurations in Windows 95.
To enable the option to have your password saved in
your Dial-up connection, go into My Computer, then go
into Control Panel. Double click on the Network icon
to open the network properties. At the configuration
screen, you want to have Client for Microsoft
Networks added to the list. To add this, click on the
Add button, then select Client and click the Add
button. Under the Manufacturers list choose
Microsoft, and under the Clients list make sure that
Client for Microsoft Networks is selected. Click OK
then click OK again and Windows will prompt to
reboot. (it may ask for your Windows CD or disks
before rebooting) After booting back up, when you
connect you should now be able to check the Save
Password box on your Dial-up connection screen.
How do I connect to America
Online(AOL) through my existing Comcat connection?
You can access America
Online without having to dial directly to them. You
will need to be connected to Comcat to connect to AOL
through a regular internet connection. To do this, at
the initial sign-on screen in AOL click on the Setup
button. Then click on the Edit Location button, and
on the new screen, under the Network section, click
the down arrow and choose TCP/IP. Then if you have a
active connection to Comcat, you can sign-on to AOL
without the need to dial directly to them.
Please note: signing onto AOL this way all of the
time may be a consideration for you. If so, you may
want to update your billing information through
America Online, informing them that you will be
accessing their network via TCP/IP. This will result
in a less expensive monthly rate for your America
