New Connection Wizard

Picture: New Connection Wizard

The New Connection Wizard replaces the Internet Connection Wizard found in earlier versions of Windows. With the New Connection Wizard, you can:
- Set up your computer to connect to the Internet using a dial-up modem, a cable/ DSL modem, or LAN connection. Your ISP, if it is not listed in the default ISP list, will give you an installation CD or inform you about the settings you have to do on your computer.
- Connect your computer to a private network, such as your company network, using dial-up or VPN connection so you can work from home or another location. Your company network must have been prepared to accept dial-up or VPN connection, and you must have an access right.
- Connect your computer to an existing home or small office network or set up a new one. You must assign a unique name for your computer and type in the workgroup name correctly.
- Set up a DCC (direct cable connection) between two computers using serial, parallel, or infrared port.
- Set up your computer for incoming connection that allows other computers on your local network or on the Internet to connect to it.
