Chapter 12. Connecting to the Internet > Understanding Connection Types

Understanding Connection Types

First, you can skip this chapter if:

  • You upgraded from a previous Windows version that had Internet access. Windows Setup preserved the configuration; your XP connection should work fine.

  • You want to transfer Internet connection settings from another PC. Use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard; see “Transferring Existing Files and Settings” in Appendix A.

  • Your PC is on a local area network (LAN) at work or school. You have Internet access through the network. Ask your network administrator about connection details.

  • You want to share an Internet connection provided by another computer. Use Internet Connection Sharing (or a router), see “Sharing an Internet Connection” in Chapter 17.
