Chapter 26. Establishing a Dial-Up Inter... > Setting Up a New Account with an ISP

Setting Up a New Account with an ISP

The top option on the Internet Connection Wizard lets you choose an ISP and set up a new Internet account. Although you can research available ISPs and sign up for an account on your own, this wizard offers a quick, hassle-free way to change service providers or set up a new account.

Using the wizard is a straightforward process. You specify the country you live in, the area (or city) code, and any necessary dialing instructions. The wizard installs a handful of required software components, including support for TCP/IP and Dial-Up Networking. During the setup and configuration process, the wizard may restart your system one or more times. Although the wizard manages the details of shutting down and restarting, you have to respond to dialog boxes like the one in Figure 26.13 to move the installation process along.
