How do I get my internet to work, using a cable modem?

Question

I had a cable modem hooked up to my laptop, however I can not gain access to the internet. The laptop has been set to use a dial-up connection. How can I change the laptop to use the cable modem instead of trying to use a dial-up connection? Where on the computer do I go the fix this? Thank you.
