Windows Me allows users to share a single internet connection between several PCs like Windows 98. It's useful and operational in a few mouse clicks.

Windows Me always supports 'standard' networks and perfectly works in a complex corporate network. As expected there are new versions of the TCP/IP Stack (Ported from Windows 2000), Home Networking Wizard, Dial Up Networking, ICS and other networking devices are supported now. You will also notice that your PC will boot quicker due to the improved faster binding etc.

As you can see above the new Dial Up Networking adds a few new features such as drop down menus that allow you to change the Dial Up Connection you want to use and the new ability to connect as soon as you click on the icon.
