Editing Dialing Rules
If You Installed the Hubris Communications CD-ROM Software
Double-click the icon on your desktop labeled "Hubris."
The "Connect to Hubris Communications" window will appear.
Within this window, click the button labeled "Properties."
The "Location Properties" window will appear:
In this box, you can enter various settings to alter the way the phone number is
In the box labeled "Area Code," enter your area code.
To Access an Outside Line:
If you need to dial a number to access an outside line, enter that number in the
appropriate box, followed by a comma (","). The comma tells the modem to pause
before dialing the rest of the phone number.
To Dial a 10-Digit Number
If you need to dial a 10-digit number, type the 3-digit area code in the
box for accessing an outside line.
Example: If you live in the Kansas City metropolitan area (but
not in Missouri) you need to dial the "816" area code to access the number in
Kansas City, MO... even though it may not be a long-distance call for you.
Therefore, you should type "816" in the box for accessing an outside line.
To Dial a Long-Distance Number
If you need to dial a long-distance number, key in "1" and the 3-digit area
code in the box for access an outside line.
Example: If you live in Louisburg, KS, the closest dialup
access number is in Paola. Since Paola is a long-distance call from Louisburg,
you need to dial it as such. Therefore, you should type "1913" in the box for
accessing an outside line.
REMINDER: It is YOUR responsibility to determine whether
a number is a local or long-distance call. Hubris Communications WILL NOT pay
long-distance charges under any circumstances.
To Disable Call Waiting
If you have call waiting, you can temporarily disable it during an
Internet phone call. Choose the correct code from the list. For most customers, the first choice is the correct code.
NOTE: If you have call
waiting, we highly recommend you disable it during an Internet call, because the
"beep" which signals an incoming call can cause your Internet connection to

All modern computers include software with the capability of dialing into
Internet service providers. You can edit the dialing rules using the computer's
built-in features. However, instructions for editing the dialing rules vary
according the operating system version you have
installed. Therefore, specific instructions for editing dialing rules are beyond
the scope of this troubleshooting wizard.
If you don't know how to edit the dialing rules on your computer, search the
"help" feature within your operating system for instructions. If you are still
