Before attempting to build the Internet connectivity with either a wired or wireless local area network, you need to purchase high-speed Internet service from an Internet service provider

• Broadband modem (DSL or cable) purchased from your Internet service provider (ISP).

• An Ethernet cable (sold separately)

- to connect your computer and the broadband modem, or

- to connect the broadband modem and a wireless router or access point which serves as an access point station to make transmission possible. (for a wireless network)

• For a wireless network connection, a wireless LAN (Local Area Network) card for your computer to connect with the router or access point. (sold separately; a built-in wireless

LAN card is supplied with select models only.)

For details about installing the wireless LAN card, router, or access point, please refer to the manuals that shipped with the product you purchased or contact that manufacturer.
