Saftey Net Firewall

I have installed Netveda Saftey Net Firewall and I need some help with understanding the configuration; 3 adapters have been recognized..1) dial-up adapter, 2) Microsoft TV/Video connection 3) 3 Com Fast Etherlink XL. I am on a dial-up internet access so from what I can figure is that under Internet Adapters I have put a check mark beside..Dial-up adapter and the Microsoft TV/Video connection but what about the 3 Com Fast Etherlink XL? My understanding is that this is a Lan Adapter, but because I access the Internet from a dial-up connection, should this be under Lan Adapters or Internet Adapters. I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer me on this subject as I would really like to make sure I have this configured properly.
THANK YOU

... identify the ethernet device is an "Internet Adapter" (I think both can have CHECK marks at the same time)... and should you someday get broadband, it should already be set up to work correctly. If you also decide to setup a home network and share computers, then you can change it to be an LAN adapter.

The Safety Net instructions say this:

a) If you are using a dialup modem to connect to the Internet, select Dial-Up Adapter or WAN Miniport (IP) as the Internet adapter on the Safety.Net Administrator Configuration screen.
b) If you are using a DSL or cable modem to connect to the Internet, select the network interface card (NIC) that is connected to the modem as the Internet adapter on the Safety.Net Administrator Configuration screen.

STEP 2: Configure a network adapter as the LAN adapter.

Select the network interface card (NIC) that connects other computers on the LAN to this gateway computer as the LAN adapter on the Safety.Net Administrator Configuration screen.

Hope this helps.
