I'm a computer dummy here. I have this computer connected via a cable to the modem. I don't use or want wifi. To put a new computer on the internet, is it just a matter of plug and play with some kind of set up wizard or what? I also need to know what information I will need to have if I have to input information. I'd like to put my new laptop on the net so I can start activating the programs that come with it as well as move on with my work.
Once I have the computer on the net, how do I put McAfee on it to protect it? I do NOT want to use the Norton sampler that came with the computer.
