Chapter 5. Exploring the Internet > Creating an Internet Connection

Creating an Internet Connection

Sometimes connecting your computer to the Internet can be the most difficult part of getting started. The New Connection Wizard simplifies the process, whether you want to set up a new connection using an existing account or select an Internet service provider (ISP) to set up a new account. In either case, you will need to obtain connection information from your ISP or your system administrator.

Create a Connection to the Internet

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click New Connection Wizard.

Click Next.

Click the Connect To The Internet option, and then click Next.

Click the Set Up My Connection Manually option or click one of the ISP options, and then click Next.

  • If you selected one of the ISP options, follow the on-screen instructions.

Select the dial-up or broadband option in which you want to sign up, and then click Next.

Type a connection name, and then click Next.

Type a phone number for a dial-up connection, and then click Next.

Click the Anyone's Use option to share the connection, or click the My Use Only option to create a private connection, and then click Next.

Type your user name and password, select the connection options you want, and then click Next.

Click Finish.
