On the Lexmark X3430 all-in-one printer...to FAX... where is the connections for the phone cords to plug into modem and one to plug into computer?


It is entirely possible you were given the wrong instructions for your printer (or someone wrote the instructions without seeing the actual machine). Why not contact Lexmark and ask for a logical explanation?

If you have a phone modem, it usually has two jacks, one goes to the wall and the other is for a phone. There will be little icons that will represent a wall jack or phone.

If all you see is one large "jack", that may be the ethernet or NIC jack; you might not have a modem, as many newer computers don't come with a phone modem.

It's cheap enough to buy a phone modem that plugs into a USB port, or to get an internal modem.

With the model number, someone might give a link to a picture showing the ports available, and their titles.

My dimension 3100 is not detecting a modem


Sir,
Respectfully please first check if there is a modem in the desktop PC since the dimension 3100 is not pre-equipped with a modem. you have to attach an internal modem manually on one or more PCI slots on the mother board.
the process is given here....

1
  • Turn off the computer. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Disconnect the power cord, attached peripheral devices and any other cables.

  • 2 Locate the cover release latch on top of the computer, near the back. Place the computer on its side, with the removable cover facing upwards. Slide the cover release latch back and lift the removable cover off of the computer. Set the removable cover aside.

  • Locate the PCI and PCI Express slots near the bottom of the system board. Select a slot that corresponds with your internal modem card. Open the card retention door on the back of the computer and remove the filler bracket for the card slot you will be using.

  • 4 Place the internal modem card into the appropriate card slot and press it firmly into place. Close the card retention door. Replace the removable cover and return the computer to an upright position.
  • 5 Connect one end of the telephone cord into the LINE port on your internal modem card; plug the remaining end into a telephone jack. If desired, connect a telephone to the internal modem card via the PHONE port.
  • 6 Reconnect the power cord and all previously disconnected cables. Plug the power cord into an available electrical outlet. Turn on the computer. If any installation software came packaged with the internal modem card, run the program and follow the onscreen directions. Your internal modem is now ready for use.

    HOW DO I CONNECT DSL LINE TO LINKSYS WRT54GS


    The WRT54GS does not have a jack to connect a phone/DSL line to, so in order to use this router with a DSL connection, you'd have to connect the DSL line to a modem and then connect the modem to the router, or connect the DSL line to a computer if you have an internal modem, and then connect that computer to the router.

    Cant find the ethernet port on my sony desktop


    It should be located on the top right hand side, on the SIDE of the computer. It looks just like a phone jack hook up. Hope this helps. Also, if you don't have one or can't find it you can always plug in an adapter to the telephone line and then you can plug the ethernet cord into that.

    Reconnecting phone line


    Because the new computers from Dell don't come with modems. You have to ask for them. I found that out yesterday when I was purchasing a new computer for work. Quite frankly I haven't seen a modem on a computer in years.

    If there is a modem on your computer it should be a card with two phone jacks. One for line and one for the phone. If you are going to use a dial up connection take the phone cord from the line and plug it into the phone jack marked line. If you dont have a card with two jacks next to each other then you don't have a modem. If you already have a network in the house you can run a network cable to the router.

    No Dial Tone on phones or modem


    if you have a dial tone when your computer is not plugged in, then the problem ls with your computer[ a possible short in the computer] the phone cord to the jack, or anything in between such as a dsl modem.if you have dsl, be sure your ethernet cord [ that's the wider plug cord] is in the wider jack in back of the computer. it wont fit in the regular phone jack.if you have dial up, be sure the phone cord is in the regular jack not the ethernet port.[if you have one]

    good luck
