That means the motherboard has a NIC (Network Interface Card) built into it. You would use that to connect to your network/Internet.

It helps the computer determine which boot device to use.

If a network is present the computer will attempt to boot from it.

If no network is detected, the computer will attempt to boot from the next bootable device in the sequence.

No, it has nothing to do with that. It's the network card built in to your motherboard ("onboard"), as alphanumeric explained.
