  Internet Connection Wizard v.5 for Microsoft Windows

 

Quick Overview:

The Internet Connection Wizard (inetwiz) quickly and efficiently sets up your Internet connection and e-mail client.  It creates a new DUN connection and makes it the default connection.  This means that Internet Explorer or Outlook Express dials up automatically when launched.  

The inetwiz also sets up an email account in Outlook Express.  This becomes OE's default mail account, and is set to dial up through the connection created by inetwiz.  It works on any version of Windows (95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP).

Note 1:  These screen shots are for the Internet Connection Wizard ("inetwiz") that comes with Internet Explorer v5 and up.

 

  Opening the Internet Connection Wizard:

There are two common ways to access the Internet Connection Wizard.
