What synonyms are there for telling someone to "go online and search for it"?

Is there something like go live or similar?

If the objective of going online is to search, I'd probably just tell somebody to google it.

'Look for it on the internet', perhaps.

On the Internet, or in the Internet? – Adam Mosheh Jul 6 '12 at 15:40

"Connect to the internet" would work. Or if they're already connected but don't have a browser open, "Open your [web] browser and..." or "In your [web] browser, ...".

Or you could say "search for it online."
