One of the first things most people will want to do when they set up a new computer is get it connected to the Internet so they update their Facebook or Twitter status to something like, “Playing with my new computer.” In most situations, getting connected to the Internet in Lion is pretty easy, but the steps to do so may differ depending on your situation. In this chapter we will cover
  • A brief introduction to networking

  • Connecting to the Internet over a broadband connection using Wi-Fi or Ethernet

  • Other ways of connecting to the internet

  • Setting up Location profiles

By the time you reach the end of this chapter you should be ready to start using Safari, Mail, and other Internet-enabled applications and technologies.
