Hour 4. Connecting to the Internet > Using a Signup Program

Using a Signup Program

As I pointed out in Hour 3, "Choosing an Internet Provider," a special signup program is required for each online service provider, and many ISPs can also supply you with a signup program for your computer. I highly recommend using signup programs whenever they're available, even when they're optional.

You can get free signup disks by mail from the providers, just by calling them on the telephone (see Hour 3). Also, signup programs often come preinstalled on new computers, and in computer magazines and junk mail. If you choose to go with a local ISP, you can usually pick up a signup CD or diskettes just by stopping by the provider's office.
