18.3. Broadband Connections

If you have a cable modem, DSL, or office network, you're one of the lucky ones. You have a high-speed, broadband connection to the Internet that's always available, always on. You never have to wait to dial, to disconnect, or to download. You're connected to the Net via your Mac's Ethernet jack, leaving its built-in modem benched.

You set up your account like this: Open System Preferences; click the Network icon; from the Show pop-up menu, choose either AirPort or Built-in Ethernet (or the name of the Ethernet card that's connected to your Internet equipment), depending on how your Mac is connected to the broadband modem. Now, you see something like Figure 18-3.
