We know you like your computer just the way it is, so we try hard to make sure you don't have to change it to use Telocity service. Just plug it into one of three different ports on the Telocity VelocityPort gateway, whichever one matches a port on your computer. Here's what to consider:

  • Computer Requirements
  • Product Specifications
  • Service Agreement
  • Step-By-Step
  •  


    Use Ethernet if your computer has this port
    Ethernet port
     

    Any computer can use Ethernet
    Ethernet is the most popular type of connection, and all you need is an Ethernet card, which most computers already have. If yours doesn't, you can easily get one; they’re inexpensive and not hard to install (get any 10Base-T or 10/100Base-T card). To use a Macintosh or UNIX/Linux computer with Telocity service, you'll have to use its Ethernet connection.

    This port is a good alternative
    USB port
     

    Windows 98/2000 can use USB
    If you use Windows 98 or 2000, and your PC has a port that looks like this (most newer ones do), you can instead connect via the Telocity gateway's USB port.

    You can use this if you don't have Ethernet or USB
    parallel port
     

    Windows 95/98 can use parallel
    If your Windows 95 or 98 PC has only a parallel port, go ahead and use that. Note that if you have a printer also connected to the parallel port, your Internet connection is temporarily interrupted when you print.

    Here's what else your computer needs:

    Windows 95/98

  • Pentium processor or newer
  • Minimum 32 MB RAM, 10 MB hard disk space
