I do not have a network card, but would like to install TCP/IP.

A. A. Microsoft provide a Loopback adapter that can be used for the testing of TCP/IP. To install the Loopback adapter perform the following actions:

  1. Start the Control Panel (Start - Settings - Control Panel)
  2. Double click on the Network icon
  3. Click on the Adapters tab, and click Add
  4. Select MS Loopback Adapter and click OK
  5. You will then need to configure TCP/IP as normal
