Question about Computers & Internet
There are a few details you should include that would facilitate your on-line connection. Such as the type of connection, (wireless, cable, dial-up), and the OS you are using, (vista, xp, mac os 10).
However I can provide you with the basic requirements that are common with all hook-up's. For the purpose of this explanation I will use the most common type of hook-up, broad band/cable connection.
The first item is the modem. The cable feed coming in to the house will connect to the cable modem. From here it is connected to the computer's Ethernet plug by cable. Normally this is located at the rear of the computer and looks like a large phone jack outlet.
After the Ethernet cable has been connected to the computer. The computer and modem can be powered up. When the system starts it will see that new hardware has been installed and search for drivers. If it cannot find the drivers stored with in it's data base then you should load an software that you received with the modem at that time.
This is all the hardware required for hook-up. To create a network (when multiple computers need to share a single hook-up) the addition of a router may necessary.
FOR SOFTWARE PORTION:
If this is the first time this computer has been used to access the internet it will be necessary to create a new network connection. In Windows XP and Vista this is done by hitting the start button, clicking on the Control Panel, then clicking the Network Setup Wizard. This will lead you through the process of creating a connection step by step.
From here you should be able to open up the internet browser and access the web.
This does not always go this smoothly. In which case you will need to provide more detailed information for trouble shooting the problem.
I hope this helps.
