Ethernet
Ethernet 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX con interfaz RJ-45

Your computer has an Ethernet port for Broadband Internet. It also has a built in 56k Dial up modem and USB support this should cover all internet connections unless your provider requires a special modem like a VOIP (think Vonage)

Technologies such as VDSL provide very high speed, short-range links as a method of delivering "triple play" services (typically implemented in fiber to the curb network architectures). Technologies likes GDSL can further increase the data rate of DSL. Fiber Optic technologies exist today that allow the conversion of copper based IDSN, ADSL and DSL over fiber optics.

Example DSL technologies (sometimes called xDSL) include:
