  5. After choosing the method for managing network connections, set up your network card using automatic configuration via DHCP or a static IP address or configure your modem (for dial-up connections, use Network Devices > Modem). To configure an internal or USB ISDN modem, select Network Devices > ISDN. To configure an internal or USB DSL modem, select Network Devices > DSL.
