2. Software Annoyances > CONFIGURING NETWORK ADAPTERS

CONFIGURING NETWORK ADAPTERS

GETTING THE FACTS FROM YOUR ISP

The Annoyance:

The configuration of my network adapter seems to go on forever. There are all these tabs in the Properties dialog box, and each tab has many options. How am I supposed to know the correct selections?

The Fix:

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has all the facts you need to get online. When you signed up for the service, you should have received instructions describing how to configure your network settings. Sometimes the information comes in the mail, sometimes you’re directed to a web site. Most ISPs mail you a CD that contains a setup program that runs automatically, or text files that explain the tasks you must perform. (Many people find the setup program annoying—see the next annoyance.)
