Telephone landlines are quickly becoming a thing of the past for most home users.

    Power on your computer and turn on the wireless feature. If there is a wireless signal near your computer that does not require a password, you will be able to access the Internet. You can also order wireless Internet service from your local cable company or other Internet service provider.

  2. 2

    Order satellite Internet connections from your local satellite provider. This Internet connection will work just like your satellite television connection; however, you may experience a loss of signal during storms or other bad weather.

  3. 3

    Power on your cell phone and select the Web browser feature. Most cell phones produced today and for the past several years are Internet-ready and capable of connecting to the Web quickly. If you do not have the Internet service on your cell phone plan, contact your phone company to upgrade and activate this feature.

  4. 4

    Use cable Internet, a service that can be ordered through most cable providers. The Internet signal will run through a cable hook up to your home, and will require a modem (usually supplied by the cable company) to connect the cable to your computer in order to access the Internet.
