Just a little help if you want it.
"Before we begin, you need to do two things: first, Bookmark or add to your
Favorites this page, and any others you proceed to from here, so you can get
back here easily."
Before we begin, you need to do a few things: first, to get back here easily
Bookmark this page or add to your Favorites.
"Also, you need to find out some basic information from your Internet
Service Provider who provides your connection to the Internet."
Next you need to find out the IP addresses of key components of your
Internet connectivity. These are available from your Internet Service
Provider or if you are not patient then you can go _here_.
(Note: If most ISP Help(less) Customer Support lines are as clueless as
mine then I would point the user to get the info themselves.)
For the findinfo.html file.
If your system is connected through a router then connect it directly to the
modem after Releasing the current Internet connection.
For Win98/ME systems go to Start >> Run >> enter "winipcfg /all" (without
quotes) and depress Release all. You will notice that several key pieces
of information will be displayed in this panel.
For WinNT/2K/XP get the Wntipcfg tool.
Create a handy shortcut for this tool adding /all like so:
"C:\Program Files\Resource Kit\WNTIPCFG.EXE" /all
When connection is restored directly to the modem then do a Renew. The
key information that is required in this window is the DHCP Server IP
address and the DNS Server IP addresses.
SMTP,POP and NNTP servers for email, and news IP addresses can be found
using the ping command. But first you will have to find out the names of
these and they are usually in the Online help for setting up your Internet
