My parents are getting DSL after years of dialup ( I have Comcast ) and i know DSL likes to install a bunch of crap like internet monitors, yahoo browser, etc..,etc... Im 99% sure you can just use Microsofts IExplorer with DSL just fine.
I guess what im asking is Do i have to use the install disc that is gonna come in the mail with the modem and stuff ??? Im hoping i dont need to install any software?? Can I just hook up all the wires and plug in the ethernet cable from the modem and click on IExplorer???
There computer only has 56mb of ram and is prolly 8 years old. I know im going to have to install a PCI ethernet card.
If anyone has any expierence with DSL and all its "supposed helpers" please let me know.
