Just as you would have done with your previous PC. As you rightly say set up the orange modem, and then add your existing email account details to whichever email client you wish to use (Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail etc)

The enjoy your new computer.

It does not matter if it One, Two or 12 computers you have to set up the LAN card on all the computer the same way

Once you have set up the lan card access the router via your web browser and configure using the following setting

Power On The Router And Wait 1-2 Min’s until it synch with your broadband ISP

Start your browser and enter the router access code, check the manual for the correct code

Connection Type = PPPoA

Encapsulation Method: VCMUX

VPI: 0

VCI: 38

Authentication: Auto

Keep Alive: On

User Idle Timeout: 3420


QoS: On

User Name & Password that you presently use to access your ISP service

if you only have a modem connected to the phone line just set up the lan card and connect to the modem and you should have internet access
