The first thing you need is a Internet Service Provider (ISP), you will need to select a service either dialup or broadband (Cable or DSL) depending on how much you / friend are prepared to pay..

The ISP will have all the necessary info's on how to set up the modem/router for your internet service. This will include any settings needed for Win XP...
