Signing Up

The first step to getting online is to select an ISP. Hundreds of them are out there. Some, such as AOL and MSN, are online services with special member benefits, shopping malls, and research tools. Others, such as Earthlink and Leapfrog, focus on Internet access, Web hosting, and support. Your phone company and cable TV company probably offer Internet access as well.

HP has made it easy for those who don't care to go hunting for an ISP by building in an Easy Internet Sign-Up wizard (see Figure 12.1) and by providing what you'll need to connect to several of the major Internet service providers.
