Windows Network Setup Wizard

Windows XP has a built-in Network Setup Wizard that makes it easy to configure networking on computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows XP. The Wizard does not work on computers running Windows 95, Windows NT, or Windows 2000. The Wizard can perform these tasks on a Windows XP computer:

  • Set up the computer as an Internet Connection Sharing server, which shares its Internet connection with other networked computers.
  • Set up the computer as an Internet Connection Sharing client, which accesses the Internet through another computer.
  • Create a bridge between two or more network connections, combining them into a single logical connection.
  • Create a floppy disk containing the Wizard files so that the Wizard can run on another computer.
