Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.
Problem:- User's modem does not dial or does not connect. Tip:- Prove that computer is connected with phone line and check that phone line contains dial tone.Therefor check that connection is connect or not.
Connection may not be less than six feet (1.8 meter).
Check dial tone by plug in the phone in phone jack.
If user has many more services (such as call waiting,call messaging OR voice mail) then check that these all are cleared or not and check call waiting is disabled while using modem.
Disconnect any answering machine,fax machine or printer which are on line with modem.
Check that are you not using digital,rollover or PBX line?These type of lines not works with modem.
Try with another phone line. (For this, you have another phone number or another phone line).If user connected with another line then you need to complain in phone company.
Go to dell support at www.dell.com/support find drivers and downloads, click on it. it'll ask you to choose your system. if you have the service tag number on the bottom of your laptop use that method or just pick by modle. you'll see where it says type of driver ... just leave it as all, same with importance, and so on. you should now be at a page that lists them all by type. I'm pretty sure that it's the Conextant V9 . Dell usually keeps all models of laptops with great hardware and my last 4 dells all had conextant.
The modem jack is too small because it is for a phone line connection not an ethernet connection. If you want to get online by dial-up, you need to connect modem to a phone line. Ohterwise look for another input jack on the laptop that the ethernet cable will insert to.

You want a 56K modem at least. Modems are becoming less common these days as brpadband (DSL/Cable/WiFi,etc) are becoming more cost effective.
Does your computer take PCI cards? If so, you might be able to find a PCI modem. There are also some serial modems still being sold. If your computer has 9 pin serial ports, you could try to use a serial modem. I think there also might be a USB modem that you could use, providing your PC has serial ports.
The error 680 means There is no dial tone.
The modem is not detecting a dial tone
There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
1.Check cable is correctly inserted into back of modem and phone socket
2.Check properties of connection, make sure correct modem is being used
3.Disable "wait for dialtone before dialing" in My Computer > Dial Up Networking > Properties of Connectoid > Configure > Connection > remove checkmark under call preferences
4.Try removing fax machines or other devices connected to the line
5.Make sure no one is using the telephone when trying to connect
