Ok, I'm not sure what kind of internet I have.
I use a splitter to divide phone and internet.
the computer is always on the internet when it's turned on
I have bellsouth.
I have Windows XP
I have a box that may be a router.
It says things like Internet, Ethernet, Dsl, and USB. Ethernet light is on internet and dsl lights are on, but "USB" light is off
I hope thats enough info.
