Dynamic The Telephony Modem gets its IP address from a DHCP server at the cable company. Most cable companies use this option.
A Static IP address connection type is less common than others. If your connection uses a permanent IP address to connect to the Internet, then select this option. PPPoE Some ISP's use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. Check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE. If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
--> L2TP Some ISP's use L2TP to establish Internet connections. If your ISP has specifically told you that you use L2TP and has supplied you with the proper L2TP information, then use this option.
