Cable... or if you want to go wireless then get a wireless router and some pci 802.11g cards total cost on sale about 100-150 bucks depending on brand.

You need
NIC Card on your PC (Usually built in)
Cable or DSL with a model
Router
Cables to connect it all (usually you get a cable with the router and one with the modem)
