RE: I have problem with connection to the internet

How are you connected to the internet, dialup, cable or ADSL? How should your PC connect to the modem/router - wireless or Ethernet?

Are any other PC's connected on the same internet link? and are they working, or is there a problem with your Internet connection?

RE: I have problem with connection to the internet

Chris, you are right that there is no option in Control Panel to connect your computer to the internet. Start with a cable connection between the computer and your router. If your network adaptor is working properly you will have an internet connection!!! That's all you need to do, just attach the cable. Post back if you then want details of how to make a wireless connection.
