After installing Vent, run it. I don't remember if it automatically brings you to the user setup or what when you first run it, but here's what I do now:
Click here to go to user setup.

This is the window that pops up. Click "New" and enter a username, which typically is your character's name and click OK. That's all you have to do, you can enter the other stuff if you want but you don't have to. Click Ok to go back to the main window.

If it's your first time seting up vent, you'll want to click "New" and type in the name of the vent server. It doesn't matter what you call it, it's for your reference only. You could call the Integrity vent "Moladun's Vent" and it will still work.
Enter the hostname/IP address, the Port number and the password. The most up to date vent info is always in the Guild Information window in WoW. The password is case sensitive.
After that, click Ok to go back to the main screen, then "Connect" to connect to the server.

I have one additional thing to add once you are in vent , and that is how to normalize it so every one volume sounds the sameand you don't have to turn up on down individual people.
The quiet ones get a boost up in volume and the loud ones get toned down..
Listed below is the an edited version from the wow forums.
- Go to Setup
- Enable Direct Sound
- Select the SFX Button
- Select Compressor and click Add.
- Under Compressor Properties use the following settings
- Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be. (I use 15)
How much volume you feed into the compressor. Not really relevant unless everyone is too quiet, then you can turn this up a little; turning it up too much will sound EXTREMELY *%*%ty.
- Attack = 0.01
How fast volume change will happen. example: setting this to 500 means that any thing coming in will only be dropped in volume after a half a second. for vent this should be set as low as possible.
- Release = Around 500
how fast the compressor stops changing things. not really that relevant with vent, setting it around 500 is good for voice material.
- Threshold = Around -30
This sets the point where we actually start changing whats coming in. Whereas 0 is the absolute loudest you can have for an input, -60 is super quiet. Average users will probably come in somewhere around -25 to -15, with the occasional few being really quiet, which is why I have this set so low.
- Ratio = 100
How much any sound below the set threshold gets compressed and/or modified in the volume department. If you still want to hear SOME volume variation then set this lower (2-4)... the higher you set it the closer in volume everyone will be.
- Pre delay = 4.0
Mostly just deals with processing; with computer and digital processors they can look ahead a few milliseconds to see what needs to be dropped in volume or changed before it actually comes through the speakers. Highest is ideal.
