Chapter 3. Connecting to the Internet > Setting Up a New Internet Account

Setting Up a New Internet Account

If you don’t have an Internet account yet and would like to sign up with an ISP, the New Connection Wizard will walk you through the process of setting up a new Internet account. If you would like help finding and selecting an ISP, the New Connection Wizard can connect you to the Microsoft Internet Referral Service. The Microsoft Internet Referral Service provides links to several of the most popular national ISPs. The manufacturer of your computer may provide Internet service as well.

Important

The setup process for using a local ISP is similar to that for transferring an existing account. If you want to use a local ISP, or if you already have an existing Internet account on another computer on your home network, set up your Internet connection by following the instructions provided in the next section, “Transferring an Existing Internet Account.” If you want to set up a broadband connection instead, follow the instructions provided in the “Setting Up a Broadband Connection” section.
