Where's the modem on old (1997) laptop?

Hi all,

I just bought an old used laptop, a Compaq Armada 1130T, for an elderly friend who wants to try the Web but doesn't want to spring for broadband. The trouble is that I can't locate the modem jack. I was expecting it to look like a phone jack, but no such luck. Device Manager tells me that the laptop contains a modem, and Belarc Advisor confirms. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    On the right side of the 1130T is nothing but a small empty oval, with beneath it a symbol that looks like two links of a chain. Is that what you mean? If it is, can you suggest what kind of cable I should buy?

    Thank you for your help.

How do you connect to the internet on this type of computer?


This is an old baby... ripe for a museum. You can connect with the internal modem using dial-up. You could also attach an external modem or an external Ethernet adapter.

I wanted to search the web on the compaq armada 3500 that i got and was wondering where the cable goes and if it even gets internet


hi yes you should be able to connect a wifi dongle via the usb port on the side for your internet connection, you would have to buy a pcmcia network card if you want network connection to internet through your modem, so if you have wifi router/modem then a dongle would be better..hope this helps

Wifi problem, please help me and my daughter.


Hello Lan, the best way to connect to your network would be using WZC utility right in windows, to make sure this is turned on follow the link below http://tech.ifelix.net/2007.html
After its turned on go Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center. After entering here choose your network, if your modem has a security key (WPA, WEP, ETC..) make sure to enter that correctly. If all is well it should connect without a problem.
Hope this helps, if this doesnt work comment and i will give further assistance

Can i restore a compaq armada 1952DMT without the disc?


Hi guy1121,

since this type of laptop is a very old one you should think about installing a Linux-system on it.

In case you're still having a genuine and unused MS Windows 98-setup disc you could also try to use that one to install and use your laptop with. In that case you should check before whether HP (they bought Compaq some years ago) is still providing drivers for the laptop and for its use with Windows 98 (which is not very likely).

Good luck and greetings from Germany,

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.
