Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

I just purchased an acer aspire mini laptop. I thought it had a place to hook up a phone line for dial up internet service. Is there a way you can get dial up on these mini's or is it wireless only?

You can connect via broadband (ethernet) or via wireless. No dial up.

You will have to get a PC Card Slot Modem (PCMCIA) for a dial-up connection.

Problem with not working right with dial up


Your dial-up relies on the internal modem to be working properly.

Check for your modem status using Device Manager.

If the listing for the modem has any yellow or red highlighting, then the modem software or hardware needs to be changed.
If you leave your PC plugged into a phone line, internal modems are easily destroyed by lightning storms or surges in the phone line.
If the Device Manager looks okay, then call your Internet Service Help Desk.

I have at&t phone service can i hook up my notebook through using my phone line. I don't have hook up anyother way in the house.


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect the notebook to the internet you need to have a service form at&t either Uverse or DSL becuase you need to have a modem or a router to convert the phone signal to data signal to have an internet connection.

Thanks.

I have an acer laptop and there is no place for a phone line and i want to seat up internet


Modern laptops are doing away with phone modems. If you need to use a dial-up and this computer has no built-in modem, you will have to purchase a PCMCIA card to put in the side--one that is a modem.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

Conecting acer notebook


what do you mean by hook it up? Do you mean internet service?
All new laptops have Wi-Fi capabilities, but you must be in range of a free service. In order to get dedicated service, you will need to either purchase an aircard from a provider such as sprint,verizon,AT&T, or get hooked up through your local phone company(DSL), or cable service- they will provide you with the modem.

Have ACER ASPIRE ONE MINI PC, have broadband service can't get


You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.
