Most important of all you need an account with an ISP. Try to get an unlimited account where there is no extra charge for downloads or hours online because these can sometimes be set so that what looks like a very good deal is actually a poor deal in practice.
You also need a browser - you will have Internet Explorer if you have Windows, but you are not limited to that, I'd recommend using Firefox.
You aslo need security - see the site tutorials here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Ste...rnet-tut86.htmlhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Sim...rnet-tut82.html
