a temporary connection to a computer or server via a telephone line rather than through a fixed connection
the old-fashioned way of connecting to the Internet with a modem. Your computer connects at a set speed via a modem connected to a telephone line. Of course, if your computer is on the phone, you can’t be - prompting many people to get second telephone lines. Dialup connections are notoriously slow. Most dialup connections are 56.6 kbps, 33.6 kbps, or 28.8 kbps, though some are considerably slower. Dialup connections are increasingly being replaced by " fast Internet" connections.
The use of a computer and modem to connect to a computer or the Internet using standard telephone lines. It normally describes slow speed 'narrowband' connections rather than 'Broadband'.
A type of connection where you use a modem to connect to another computer or an Internet provider over the phone lines.
A temporary (as opposed to dedicated) connection between machines established over some type of phone line. As an Thorn user you will dialup a POP (point-of-presence) for your connection to the Internet.
Using a computer, modem, and a standard telephone line to connect to another computer, network, or Internet Service Provider. Dialup provides ?narrowband? data transfer rates. The fastest dialup modem offers a speed of 56Kbps, although line speeds may be slower than what a modem is capable of handling.
A communication line, usually a regular telephone line. Your computer and modem dials a phone number to access another computer system.
Dialup describes the kind of connection you have if you dial a number through your computer to connect to your ISP. Dialup differentiates standard phone line connections from other, higher speed lines that maintain a constant connection between two points, such as T1 lines.
refers to a connection to an ISP where a computer or network becomes part of the Internet for the duration of the connection.
This is when you use a telephone line or ISDN network to connect your computer to a service - ie. make a phone call to get online.
A temporary, as opposed to dedicated, connection between machines established over a telephone line using modems. A patron might use a dialup connection from home (using a personal computer, modem, and telephone line) to dial into and use the library catalog.
The use of a modem and telephone network to connect a computer to a remote network.
Dialup is a long-standing means of connecting to the Internet, accomplished by means of analog signals passed between two electronic modulator-demodulator devices, often referred to as 'modems', over a standard phone line. There are a number of distinct steps in establishing a dialup connection, which can be briefly summarized as dialing, handshake/negotiation, authentication, and PPP (Point-to-point protocol) session start.

'Dialup Access' or a 'Dialup Account' is when a modem is used to gain access to the Internet.
A temporary network connection made over a regular phone system, rather than one through an internal network or permanently leased line. This is typically the way a user would connect to the Internet or an online service at home.
Dialup access to the Internet refers to a regular modem connection to the Internet (28.8 - 56 Kbps; V.90, x2 or K56flex). Regular modems connect to the Internet by 'dialing up' to a Point of Presence (PoP), or dialup location, with a phone number, hence the term 'dialup. Windows 95/98 users use Microsoft Dial-Up Networking to connect to the Internet with a regular modem, while Macintosh users use FreePPP. High Speed Internet access usually entails a constant connection to the Internet whenever both your computer and high speed modem are turned on.
An internet connection through a standard analog telephone line. These are typically slow connections compared to broadband. While broadband is readily available for some areas, dialup is still the main mode of connection for the majority.
