Summary

Setting up a modem with Windows XP is usually a painless process, since the operating system will automatically detect most plug-and-play modems. If it doesn't, you can always use the diskette or CD provided by the modem manufacturer to load a driver for Windows XP to use to communicate with the modem. Setting up a connection to the Internet can be a little more complicated, but it doesn't have to be. By using a wizard, the process is simplified, and you only need to enter a small amount of information for most of the major ISPs. Depending on the type of Internet connection you have, the Windows XP firewall may offer powerful protection for your computer. In this chapter, you learned how to enable and configure the firewall for your connection type.
