Default New Machine / XP Pro (SP2)...Connect WITHOUT Verizon (???)

Hello again...

Finally got my long-awaited new PC...mfg.'d by a specialty company & tweaked expressly for high efficiency digital audio.

So...I attempt to load my Verizon DSL software; & it's rejected by the new machine (for some stupid 'Flash Validation' reason or some such nonsense.) So I have heard that w/ XP Pro...internet connectivity can be made thru the OS's own portal.

Can someone explain to me how this is accomplished?

2Wire or wireless? For the hard wired dsl you will have a router and sometimes nik card or onboard lan enabled. With that setup you load the Home Portal software and configure the account information in OE as far as assigned user name /password there. Also make sure no present firewall is active when trying to initially set things up.
