Lesson 22. Using Internet Explorer > Accessing the Internet

Accessing the Internet

You may have to try several times to attach to the Internet; in between tries you may need to edit your settings to get everything just right. When you're ready to access the Internet, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Dial-Up Networking dialog box by double- clicking the icon in the My Computer window.

  2. Click the Dial button and you'll see a Connecting to dialog box displayed; you can click the Cancel button at any time to stop the process.

  3. If you chose to display a terminal window for logging on, enter the user name and password for your account and then choose the Done button. After you're verified on the server, the Connection Complete dialog box appears (see Figure 22.1). Choose OK to close the dialog box.

  4. Double-click the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop to display a screen similar to the one in Figure 22.2; this is Microsoft's Start Page.
