Have your user name, password, and if required, the domain name server (DNS) address from your ISP available as you configure your network (see page 71).

3 Type the information into the corresponding fields. If you want all users of your computer to use the same connection method, select "Save password."

Note: To connect automatically when you start a TCP/IP application, such as a web browser or email, click PPPoE Options, then select "Connect automatically when needed."

4 Click TCP/IP and choose either Using PPP or Manually from the Configure IPv4 pop-up menu, as instructed by your ISP. If you have a static IP address from your ISP, choose Manually and type the address in the IP Address field.

5 Type the domain name server (DNS) addresses in the DNS Servers field.

Once you configure your network, your Internet connection is ready. You can open your web browser or other TCP/IP application to test your connection.

Important: If you did not select the option to connect automatically, you will need to open the Internet Connect application, choose the correct configuration, and then click Connect. For more information, choose Help > Internet Connect Help from the menu bar at the top of the display.
