Question about Computers & Internet
I have an AST Ascentia J Series Laptop w/Windows 95 (don't laugh!). Cablevision (optonline) could not connect their modem to my laptop, so the "triple freedom" installation was incomplete -- yet they are billing me for service they could/did not provide. My User Manual indicates that a Type II PC Card would connect to a modem, but Jason, owner of Super computers in Selden, NY, said that his/today's PC Cards are not compatible w/Windows 95. The end of the modem wire looks like a phone wire that you pinch into a phone jack, except that the end plastic "pincher" on the modem wire is much larger.
Where can I get a PC Card that will work -- or is there another solution, until I get a new computer? Please reply. Thanks. gmc
The wire coming from the modem it a cat 5 ethernet cable,It will connect to you computer's RJ11 jack (ethernet port).
The specs on this laptop,say that,it comes with built in RJ11 jack.
If you do not have this jack,just buy an ethernet card and install in compatibility mode.
