For example most computers don't come with flash or other such software installed.

It seems like we get to become IT GURUS when we get a new machine.

When I got my netbook ....

Internet did work. Why doesn't yours? Your forgot to tell. We must know before we can suggest a solution.

Usual basic steps are:
1. Boot the netbook and login.
2. Connect with an Ethernet-cable to the router.
3. Start browsing
Steps 1 and 2 can be done in the reverse sequence also.

Telling the exact circumstances (what OS, wired or wireless, dial-up or cable or ADSL, router) and symptoms ("no connection icon for the wireless connection" is quite something else as "Windows Live Mail gives an error about a wrong password", to name 2 examples) might be useful.

to the router before Internet works. That can be done wired (always) or wireless (only if you have a wireless router, of course).
