It's easy to connect
to the Net, you usually need to get an internet account from an ISP and
software porvided along with the account, an Internet dialer will be automatically
installed. All you need to do is click on the dialer to connect.
You can either launch your Web browser (Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer) or your email program or both. Many people actually use the email program built into their browser, so that launching your browser is all you need to do initially. Then you can use your Personal Start Page to see if you have email messages, read the latest news, get the sports scores,find out what your stocks are trading at, browse the Start Page channels, or search for something specific with your page's built-in search engine. Your options are almost limitless:
instance, there are more than 500 GuideSites (each with its own resources,
chat rooms, and newsletters) accessible from the 15 About.com channels

back on again. That way, busy signals may become a thing of the past.

Web, sending and receiving
email, engaging in chat, transferring files via FTP,gaming), you can stay
online for up to
24 hours at a time. And when you signup for the basic dial-up account,
you will not be charged
extra, no matter how much you use the Net. Of-course in India, the Telephone
has to paid for seperately.
phone lines are a major cause for dropped connections, you could rectify
this by checking your connection at the junction boxes and any loose
or improper connections at your end of the phone line. You could also
get the telephone company personnel to check your phone line and reduce
the noise in the line.
