    I just installed the Home Edition of Windows XP (from 2002) via Boot Camp. I'm having trouble getting online in Windows. Most of the Internet options seem to revolve around modems, which I don't have. I use a router connected to my computer via Ethernet. There's also a wireless function, which I can use in a pinch.

    How would I get the Windows side to connect to the Internet via Ethernet? I don't intend to spend much time online on the Windows side (due to viruses), but I'd like to be able to go online if necessary.

    Thank you.

    If you are already connected via ethernet then you shouldn't need to configure anything.

    Have you installed the Bootcamp drivers for Windows?

    No, actually I think I forgot to do that. I'll look into it, thanks.
