NetZero Dial-up solution for all Linux Versions


This information is about three-four years old. I had my netzero account since 99. Therefore, It might work with new accounts. I have tried this method and it worked for me on a Mepis and Knoppix yesterday on 11/4/05. For the High Speed account, DL a web accelerater for linux. Please let me know if this work on other linux versions as I stated naively.



Netzero

(originally for Dreamcast dial-up)
Start by going to their website, netzero.com, and sign-up. Make sure that when you're asked to make a password, all letters are in lower case (it can contain numbers though) and is as short as possible. This is a seven step process with the last being the software download. You do not need to download the software if you only plan on using this over your Dreamcast. Make sure to look up your local access numbers while at their site. The following is what you need to get it to work on Dreamcast. This one can be kind of tricky.

Login: 0:3.1.2:username@netzero.net (recommended)
Password: See Below...

If the above login does not work try one of the following:

Login: 9:3.0:username@netzero.net
Login: 0:3.1.2:username@netzero.net
Login: 0:3.0.4:username@netzero.net
Login: DubB5:3.0.4:username@netzero.net

Do the following to make your Netzero login password (thanks to Dreamcast NetCenter for this information)...


Use the table below to convert you password. If your password is nbrid, then converted it would become {a].b as your password. This was done by finding 'n' in the table, and looking in the first column to the right of it, since it's the first letter in the password, to find '{'. The same goes for 'b' which became the 'a' found in the second column to the right of b in the table, since 'b' is the second letter in our password. And so on. Please note that case is important here.
Then take this converted password and add a zero (0) to the beginning of it, and a one (1) to the end. So our example becomes 0{a].b1 which we use for our login password.
