Switching our FIOS to a new computer?

Good day all!

 

Our family has finally saved enough to buy a new computer and it is arriving today.   My question is how do I get my wife's e-mail

thru Verizon and our Internet service (Fios) onto the new computer?  I am not a computer geek so any intuitive directions or links

will be most helpful.

 

I believe the new computer will come as a "plug and play" so all I need to undertand is how to switch the Internet service over to

the new computer along with e-mail.

 

Thanks in advance!  :smileyhappy:

Re: Switching our FIOS to a new computer?

How is the e-mail being retrieved? Are you using Verizon's Webmail and accessing it through your Web Browser, or are you using a program such as Thunderbird, Outlook Express, or Microsoft Office Outlook?

The e-mail is being retrieved via the Veriozn homepage that is set up on our computer.

There is nothing you need to do to install FIOS on the new computer.

Simply connect the new computer wired or wirelessly to the FIOS router.

Open you browser and navigate to the VZ web mail page.

Once there, you can save a shortcut to that page.

Anti-Phish;

 

"Simply connect the new computer wired or wirelessly to the FIOS router."

 

To do this, should I just simply follow the present wiring connection from the router to my old pc, and replicate that

connection on my new pc?

 

Is the router that 12" high blcak antenna type thing?

I did mention in my OP that I was not real computer literate.

 

Thanks!

Use the VZ Inhome Agent.

Works Great to set it up.

Yes.  The router has 4 LAN ports on the back.  Take an ethernet cable and connect the new PC to one of the available LAN ports.

There is one port that is a different color from the four LAN ports,  Do not use that port.
