Hour 23. Office XP and the Internet > Using Internet Explorer

Using Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer is a Web browser (also called a browser) that brings Web data to your desktop. Microsoft's free Web browsing program, Internet Explorer, works closely with the Office products and integrates with them nicely as you'll see in this hour's lesson.

If your company offers networked Internet access, you need a network interface card in your PC so you can connect to the company's Internet connection. If you use the Internet from home, or from an office that does not provide networked Internet access, you need to get Internet access through an ISP, an Internet service provider. One of the easiest ways to get access is through the Microsoft Network or America Online services, which have access programs that are available with all Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows 2000 installations. If you want Internet access through another ISP, such as a local Internet provider, your provider will tell you how to use Internet Explorer or another Web browser to access the ISP's Internet system. You will also need modem access (56K is the minimum recommended speed these days) or another Internet connection that might be available in your area such as a cable modem or DSL (Digital Subscriber Line). Check your phone book for options that you can get locally.
