Chapter 6. Sending and Receiving Interne... > Installing the TCP/IP Protocol

Installing the TCP/IP Protocol

One of the common mistakes people make when they first try to connect to an ISP is not making sure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed on their computers. All Internet communication depends on the TCP/IP protocol, so you must have it installed in order to access Web sites, interact with newsgroups, or to send and receive Internet e-mail. You don't need to understand TCP/IP, just make sure it's installed.

For information about installing TCP/IP under Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT, see the Windows Help topic "Connecting to the Internet." If you follow the instructions carefully, you shouldn't have any problems. However, if you do have difficulty, your ISP's technical support people will probably be glad to help.
