If you want to connect to the Internet, here are the options.

Wireless

Choose this if you have a wireless router or network, or if you're connecting to a hotspot, even if you also have a broadband connection.

Broadband (PPPoE)

Choose this if your computer is connected directly to a broadband modem (also called a Digital Subscriber Line [DSL] or cable modem), and you have a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Internet account. With this type of account, you need to provide a user name and password to connect.

Note

  • If you want to connect a wireless network to the Internet with a broadband modem, choose the Wireless option.

Dial-up

Choose this if you have a modem but it is not a DSL or cable modem, or if you want to use Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) to connect your computer to the Internet.
