Connecting To The Net
DSL may have you connected to the internet automatically. Try it first. If it doesn't work out, use a DSL tool tailored to your connection type:

If you have broadband and a router that assigns your IP adress via dhcp you shouldn't have to configure anything. If not, tweak your network card settings:

For physical connections (a cable attached to your computer), try netconfig: open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->netcardconf.
For wireless connections (802.11b, 802.11g, etc), try iwconfig: open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->iwconfig.
If you have a dialup modem, or your ISP requires a login, then:

Configure your dial-up settings: open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->dial-up PPP->config. Follow the on-screen prompts, and remember the name you give to your configuration (!).
To dial in, enter your dial-up configuration name (from the previous step), and click dial.
When finished, just click hangup.
If you have PPPoE:

Configure your PPPoE settings: open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->DSL/PPPoE->PPPoEconf. Follow the on-screen prompts.
To connect, open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->DSL/PPPoE->pon
To disconnect, open the DSL menu and select Setup->Net Setup->DSL/PPPoE->poff
