Installing the Hardware

No matter what kind of Internet connection you’ll be using, you’ll need a modem, a network adapter, or some other sort of connection hardware. If you’re lucky, your computer came with this preinstalled and you can just skip ahead to “Configuring your Internet Connection.”

Otherwise, you’ll be adding some hardware. For most types of high-speed service your ISP will either come install everything for you, or they’ll give you detailed instructions. For the basic service types, I’ll give you some generic installation instructions in the next few sections. Your connection hardware may come with detailed instructions. If it does, by all means follow those.
