Some providers make you use IE to do the initial setup. I am guessing you are running OS9 so it could be IE 5.2 for the mac. Did you get a valid ip? Can you tell me who your isp is and I can look up what you need.

    I was looking at net zero if I remember right that is what you use. Here is a Faq from their website.

    NetZero HiSpeed 3G may not be compatible with proxy
    based software or services such as content filters or firewalls.
    NetZero HiSpeed 3G is only compatible with Platinum service and
    specified browsers. Available only for Windows.

    Their platinum and free service still work with a mac.

Blocked plug-in

You didn't say what web browser you are using, so I can only provide a generic answer. Your security settings or software may be blocking a browser plugin identified as a security risk, or the browser has in some manner determined that the plugin is incompatible with a newer version of a subsidiary application (such as Flash Player). Another possibility is that the browser security asked permission of one of the users to use the plugin and that permission was denied.
Find your plugin manager (perhaps in the browser preferences menu item) and remove the offending plugin. If it isn't a security issue and you really need it, you can download a new copy the next time you hit a page that uses it. It's also possible that all plugins have been blocked. Example: Safari:Preferences... menu item > Security tab > check "Enable Plugins" in the Web Content section.

I have a Mac Pro. I cannot seen to get Safari to open so I can browse the net?

If Safari refuses to launch, you may want to download a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome. Once you successfully connect to the Internet using one of these browsers, you may find that you no longer need to use Safari.

How to get wireless internet

Acquiring wireless internet service can be done several ways. The most common way is by using a wireless router - such as an Airport Express - in combination with the modem your internet service provider has given you.
This creates a Wireless Area Network in the range of about 100-300 feet depending on the strength of your router and sources of interference.
Once using a wireless router with your modem, your Mac should be able to connect to it by clicking on the Airport icon in the upper right hand corner and selecting the name of your network.

Other ways to get wireless internet include but are not limited to using an antenna that plugs into your computer in conjunction with a cellular network. Such devices are commonly available but are not going to be anywhere near as fast as a wireless connection created using the method described above.
Keep in mind that using a cellular antennae usually requires additional software supplied by your wireless provider (for example, AT&T or Verizon) whereas your Mac should be able to connect to a wireless network created by a router without any additional software.

My mac wont load

The site may not work on your browser. Try using a common one like firefox. If several other sites won't load but some will, it could be a problem with your internet provider's dns servers. Go to to solve that.

Internet provider says no browser installed on my pc

It is hard to believe you do not have a browser on your laptop. These are browsers you can use. Firefox, netscape, lycos and explorer are some. If you have a friend with a computer, get them to download firefox for mac on theri computer, then get them to put it on a USB for you, take the USB and install it on your Mac. This will fix your browser issue.

How do I get an ip from netzero?

If you are using DHCP it should get one when you start your computer. I am not sure your computer skills but I have seen people plug a phone cable into the dsl modem so make sure you have an Ethernet cable pluged into the ethernet port. Sorry if you knew that but I have seen it before. One other question does your provider require a certain browser to get setup first? Under OS9 in the system Pref folder there is a TCP/IP preference, you can trash that and reboot then go back to control panels and reset your settings to ethernet/ using dhcp.
