    In order to install a program, you need the Internet.

    In order to install a (computer) program, you need the Internet.

    Does this sound natural?

    Yes, although most people don't capitalise "internet" these days. I might end with "you need to be on the/connected to the internet".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
