Default Networking for Laptops

I'm looking for a new laptop for school and I'm able to get a decent deal through my parents work. This website lets me put together what I want in the laptop, but i'm stuck when it comes to networking. The choices are between:

1. Integrated 56K Modem + 10/100 Ethernet LAN
2. Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
3. Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network w/Bluetooth

I need to be able to access ethernet in my apartment. So I'm stuck on whether I need to get the first choice or if I can upgrade to the latter choices and still be ethernet capable. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I would get number 3 for the bluetooth, however I would call to ensure you get ethernet, you usually do, but I would not take any chances. What is the website, would help us figure it out.
