You don't really need to install any software that your ISP gives you. All you need is the correct settings to enter - which your ISP can provide and walk you through over the phone.

What you do need to do is to install the driver software for the network adapter. That's the port that connects the broadband modem to the computer with a RJ-45 cable.

Read here and see if it helps.
