After reboot, start the Windows for Workgroups 3.11 setup program.
At the "Network Setup", click on "Networks...", then select "Install Microsoft Windows Network" and "OK".

Windows for Workgroups 3.11 is now installed with the proper network configuration! Copy the installation files of Internet Explorer 5.0 to your hard disk - through the network - or on a CD.
Start its installation by running setup.exe (use the file manager). Follow the instructions except for modem configuration (cancel that) and reboot when the program asks you.
Caution: Systems with more than 40 MB of RAM
The setup program wrongly reports you don't have enough memory. In that case, run SETUP.EXE /f:16
Back to Windows, DO NOT START INTERNET EXPLORER!!! Instead, go to the Control Panel => Internet Properties. On connection tab, a message notifies there is no modem installed. Close it and select the local network. Set the other parameters as you want, close the Internet Properties and finally reboot. Now, you can run Explorer and surf on the Internet
- If an error message displays at the Internet Explorer startup, don't pay attention. It actually works.
- Obviously, don't expect to get a good experience on today popular websites with Windows 3.11 and IE5...
