Configuring Your Browser
This page will help to explain some simple browser configurations. With
the help of this document, you should be able to make changes to your
browser's settings to make your Internet experience more enjoyable.
Start and Search Pages
Your browser has the capability to start up with a page of your
choosing, rather than the default Netscape or Microsoft web sites.
Texas.Net recommends doing this, since we sometimes have important
announcements on our web site that you should be aware of.
- To make this change in Netscape, go up to "Options | General
Preferences". Under the "Appearance" tab, there should be a frame
titled "Startup". Where it says, "Browser Starts With", select "Home
Page Location" and in the box below, type
- For Microsoft Internet Explorer, go up to "View | Options".
On the Navigation tab, find the frame labeled "Customize". For "Page",
select "Start Page" and in the "Address" field, type
"http://lonestar.texas.net". Go back up to the "Page" field
and select "Search Page". Type
"http://lonestar.texas.net/links" in the "Address" field
- For other browsers, look through your browser's configuration
section for a "Home Page" or "Start Page" setting. If you need help,
consult your browser's documentation.
Mail and News Setup (for Netscape)
To set up Netscape's Mail and News, go up to "Options | Mail and
News Preferences". Under the "Identity" tab, fill out the
appropriate information as it appears on your Texas.Net Confirmation
Packet. Under the "Servers" tab, use the information from our
Common Information section in our Helpdesk to
fill out the account and server fields. The areas referring to mail
box sizes, timeout values and other settings need not be touched.
If you need any additional help for Netscape or MSIE browsers, please
e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with
your help request. For other browsers, we are limited to providing
the same information as is listed in our Common
Information Helpdesk section.
