Default XP User Accounts

Hi all,

I have a Guest user account with Power Users rights. I would want Guests to be able to surf the Internet. How can I do so?

My Guests account can't access to the internet. What configuration should I do in order for them to surf the net?

Have you got the connection on the guest account? Can't you just set the connection up on the Guest Account?
