Win95 internet connection

I have the chance to buy an old laptop running Win95. I only want it for Word and the internet.
It needs a modem. Can Win95 access the internet. If so is there a preferred isp? most isp discs need Win98 or more?

Yes it can and it will work just like Win98. Just get an external modem

PS setup is just the same, go to My Computer double click on it then double click on Dial-Up Networking and create a new connection. This is after you have set the modem up

In my opinion you would be able to get something better than click here for 100 squids.

PPS the Modem will have to have a Serial Connector as you cannot use USB on win95
