As in previous versions of Windows, Windows XP provides a wizard for network connection setup. Wizards break down a task into individual steps and guide the user through the steps one at a time.

The Windows XP New Connection Wizard supports two basic types of Internet connections - broadband and dialup. It also supports several types of private connection setup including virtual private networking (VPN).

To access the network connection setup wizard in Windows XP, navigate through the Start menu to the Connect To and Show all connections options as shown. The same feature is also accessible via the Network Connections icon in Control Panel (not shown). Click either of these options to continue.
