Configuring Windows XP Home Edition to Connect to the Internet

The process will only connect you to the Internet. It does not connect you to the Faulkner network and it does not give you access to Faulkner file space.

In order to use your Internet connection, you must have the necessary software to either browse the Internet or to perform other Internet functions.

In order to access Grades or Account information make certain you are using Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher.
