  8           Wide Area Networks (WANs), such as X.25, Frame Relay and leased
  9           lines, are used to interconnect Local Area Networks (LANs) over vast
 10           distances with data transfer rates significantly higher than those
 11           achievable with commonly used asynchronous modem connections.
 12 
 13           Usually, a quite expensive external device called a `WAN router' is
 14           needed to connect to a WAN. As an alternative, a relatively
 15           inexpensive WAN interface card can allow your Linux box to directly
 16           connect to a WAN.
 17 
 18           If you have one of those cards and wish to use it under Linux,
 19           say Y here and also to the WAN driver for your card.
