How do i connect to the internet i changed me service?

hi Inga.
see if this helps you out.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections. If your DSL or cable modem is always connected and your ISP does not require a user name and password, you do not need to run the New Connection Wizard.
How do you get access to the Internet? Internet Service Providers (ISPs) If you want to access the internet at home, you'll need an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and a router to connect to the ISP. ISPs often provide a router with their service. This means more than one computer or device in your house can use the broadband connection at the same time.

I've problem with my ADSL i can't access by wireless??? i don't know why???

Some DSL Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Authentication to establish Internet connection with their end-users. This article will guide you in setting up the router's PPPoE feature.
NOTE: This article assumes that you already have the username and the password for your DSL Internet connection.

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here

NOTE: If you're using a Mac, click here for instructions.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the drop-down arrow for Internet Connection Type then, select PPPoE.


Step 3:
Enter the Username and the Password for your DSL Internet connection.


Step 4:
Select Keep Alive.


Step 5:
Click Save Settings.

Step 6:
Click the Status tab.


Step 7:
Verify that the Connection Type is PPPoE then, click Connect.
