Enabling all users to access broadband

By mmogano ·
I have installed Tiscali (an ISP)Broadband Internet on my son-in-law's computer under his User Account. His two sons (my grandsons!) have their own User Accounts on the same computer but cannot access the Internet through these. How do we arrange that they can please? Many thanks.

If you are using Windows XP then the additional accounts that were created may not have the proper rights. Log on under your son in law's account and go into the control panel. From there double click the user accounts icon and change those accounts that can't access the internet to give them Administrative rights or at the very least power user rights. That should take care of it.

Sorry but this does not work. I have tried making my two grandsons' User Accounts both Unlimited and Administrator but in either case they cannot access the Internet. We get the same message that the Password is not the right one.
Many thanks for trying.

The solution to this simple, I had the same problem and this is how i solved it.Go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS then select create a new connection follow the wizards instructions to set up a internet connection using the option CONNECT USING A DAIL UP MODEM, Then select your device ISDN CHANNEL usb device name the connection ie. Tiscali,the phone number to use is 0,38 .Now enter your username and password tiscali suplied you with, now you can select you options to share with all users as default connection MAKE SURE ITS THE DEFAULT CONNECTION METHOD ELSE YOU WILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! fINAL TEST THE CONNECTION Hope this helps
