Windows 95 Installation Instructions

The following instructions will guide you through the basic installation and setup of each software package you will use to access the different features of the Internet. It is assumed you know how to perform basic procedures on your computer such as creating directories, installing software, or copying files. If you do not know how to perform these task, you will need to obtain a Windows guide to learn about your computer before you proceed. Bear in mind you are connecting to the largest and most complex network in the world. Although using the Internet has become very simple, you will need to walk before you can run.

Be sure that you have approximately 25 Mbytes available on your hard drive for the full installation of the software provided. Important Note: All prior Winsock or Internet programs should be deleted or removed for maximum compatibility. This includes any version of America Online (AOL), Compuserv, etc. We do not support any other installation, connection method, or application except what is presented here. Please understand that we can not support the thousands of software available for Internet access or use. More often than not, if you experience trouble with connection and installation, it is because you have one, or several different "On-line" programs competing with Windows 95 to connect to the Internet.


General Modem installation instructions

Connecting to NCKCN

You can connect (dial) to NCKCN several different ways. Essentially, whenever you start a program that wants to connect to the Internet, Windows 95 starts the Dial-up connection you created in the previous section. Perhaps the easiest way then to start an Internet connection is to simply double-click the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop. You can also go to My Computer, then Dial-up networking, and double-click on the NCKCN connection. For more information on this and how to view/edit your Dial-up Networking (DUN) connections view the Windows 95 Dial-up Networking link on the NCKCN Support web page at http://www.nckcn.com/Support/.
