At the end of Internet sign-up, the Internet service provider (ISP) sign-up server creates an .ins file that contains the specified Internet settings and returns the file to the computer. Windows Welcome then processes the .ins file and applies the settings to the computer.

The Internet sign-up option is not available for the Windows Vista® operating system.
