This is probably a lame question, but I'd like to hear from you guys on this.
Here's my question. I have another computer that I just fixed for my father-in-law to use for his first time and I'd like to be able to take the computer to his house, hook it up to his phone line, and get on the internet via dial-up modem.
How can I do that without having a disk like "peoplepc" or "earthlink" or whatever? I do not want AOL......that's a definite.
I've probably already answered my own question, but thought I'd see what you guys have to say about a very inexpensive dial-up internet connection. He's not going to be using it that much.....so he needs to keep the cost down.
Is there a way to connect to the internet without using a disk provided by an ISP? For instance, can I download an ISP's disk and use it to set up my father-in-laws computer?
Are their any "free for the first 3 months" ISP's left out there? If you know of any, or can direct me to a site where I can download a disk on my computer for use on his, I'd appreciate hearing from you. I live in the northeast....if that helps.
Thanks for the input.
