My XP pc was recently installed in a new apartment and it works. But I have no idea who my ISP is. How can I best determine that? Thanks.

If you don't have an ISP right now, you'll have to call a company and see if they have service in your area. I don't know where you live, but in the US the big two are Comcast and Verizon. If you call them and give them your address, they can tell you if they have service where you live. You can also check online on their website if you want.

Have you asked the apartment manger? Since it will be the same for all I'm sure they would know who services the area.

Go here: http://whois.domaintools.com/
Click on "My IP address" tab to establish your IP.
Once done, copy the number and click on "Whois" tab and paste the number.
Click "Lookup" button.
