CONFIG_WAN: Wan interfaces support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_WAN:

Help text

Wide Area Networks (WANs), such as X.25, Frame Relay and leased lines, are used to interconnect Local Area Networks (LANs) over vast distances with data transfer rates significantly higher than those achievable with commonly used asynchronous modem connections.

Usually, a quite expensive external device called a `WAN router' is needed to connect to a WAN. As an alternative, a relatively inexpensive WAN interface card can allow your Linux box to directly connect to a WAN.

If you have one of those cards and wish to use it under Linux, say Y here and also to the WAN driver for your card.

If unsure, say N.
