Configuring Your Mac for Internet Access

The three fundamental ways to connect a Mac to the Internet are dial-up accounts over a phone line and dial-up modem, broadband connections that use Ethernet, and wireless connections using AirPort. Although configuring dial-up accounts is relatively standard, many options are available for an Ethernet-based account. And, when you use AirPort to connect, you actually connect the AirPort hub (whether it is a Mac or an AirPort Base Station) through one of the two other methods.

→ A great way to network Macs and connect them to the Internet through a single account is by using AirPort; see Chapter 11, “Using an AirPort Network to Connect to the Internet,” p. 297.
