WebTV appears to be a service seperate from your standard ISP. I've never used WebTV but I understand it uses a box to kinda sorta connect to the internet using a browser designed for WebTV. It's for folks who don't want a computer. So when you get a computer, you have to change your service to a regular ISP. The best solution is to contact her service provider to go over her options. Maybe they'll offer a deal if she keeps both of them. She's better off getting an internet connection via cable or DSL anyway as it will be much faster than a standard phone line. And though she might say she doesn't care about that now, it won't be long before she complains about how slow dialup is.
