They are:

Using a modem

Using a router

Using a wireless router

In addition, there are a number of access technologies, the most common of which is using a broadband modem (via, for example, PPPoE), or connecting directly.

Connecting via broadband modem: This is mostly done using the PPPoE protocol. The ISP will provide the user with a username and a password to facilitate the access of the user's computer to the Internet through a dial-up connection. Direct connection: With this mode of connection, the user's computer, which is connected to a modem, can get online without user authentication. There is another kind of direct connection where the computer can be directly connected, without a modem, to a telephone or network socket supplied by the ISP. Here it will be explained briefly about the connection using a wireless router Connecting to the Internet with a Wireless Router There are many types of wireless Internet protocols, and many wireless routers nowadays come with simple setting up instructions (such as manuals) that are easy to follow. Here we introduce some terms you might need to know: • SSID (Service Set IDentifier) This is the name of your private wireless network. Wireless routers come with a default factory setting on the SSID names (such as "default"). You are advised to refer to the manual and rename the SSID name, so as to stop yourself from connecting to someone else's network by mistake. The SSID name can be a combination of letters from the English alphabet and numbers, and should not be your own name or personal information, as this will make it easier for hackers to obtain your personal information. You are also advised to disable the "SSID Broadcast" setting.
