Display Monitor:
As this site is very rich in content, it is important to have a color display capable of 1024 x 768 resolution. The number of colors that the monitor will support is also important. The minimum number of colors is 256. However, to view the site as intended, the monitor should be capable of displaying 65,000 colors.
Modem:
Your modem will have a significant impact on the speed at which your pages can be retrieved from any internet site, including EntireNet. You may use a 28.8kb modem, but the response time will be slow. We recommend the minimum speed to be 33.6kb, and feel you will be happier with a 56kb modem. However, not all internet service providers support 56kb. You should check with your service provider before upgrading your modem.
Internet Browser:
EntireNet uses some of the latest internet technology. Not all browsers have the functions needed.* You MUST USE Microsoft Internet Explorer. You must also use the MOST CURRENT VERSION of the browser to take advantage of all the functions in EntireNet.
