Default Ummm, OnBoard WAN? lol

Yea, if I hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to get to Task Manager if I go to my "Networking" tab I see 3 networks, my 2 onboard LAN's and then under them there is a thing called "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface" and it says Network Utilization is around .23% 10Mbps Status = Connected....


Is this a Wireless Network on my board? Or what is going on? lol... Maybe I'm retarded but I've never seen this.

It might be your Internet connection I think.

If it was wireless it would say WLAN . WAN is just the internet.
