 +===== Configure Networks =====
 +
 +
 +Choose the network types for which to enable connectivity in your Open Mobile client: Mobile Broadband, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Dial, and DSL. You must enable at least one network type or your users will not be able to connect.
 +
 +
 +Networks are collected in network directories. A network directory is a list of networks for a particular network type, such as Mobile Broadband, Wi-Fi, or Dial. Each network entry in the directory includes all of the necessary attributes to make a connection of that type. Many default iPass network directories are available for inclusion in profiles. In addition, customers can create their own custom network directories and include those in profiles. At this time, custom network directory types include Wi-Fi and Mobile Broadband.
