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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have a unlocked ZTE Mf190 USB-Modem. When I put the SIM card in it and
connect it to the computer, I am able to connect to 3G Internet via
beetel connection manager. Is it also possible to send and receive SMS.
But when I try to make a voice call on beetel voice call panel, I
receive this error message "Dialing failed! Please try again!" . And
also when I use another phone to call the SIM card line number that I
put in the USB-Modem, I receive busy tone
Hi. As what i understand the MC760 alone can connect to the internet without connecting to the router. This device will act as a modem right away. This is the one of the device where you will put in a simcard to connect to the internet if i am not mistaken. You need to download and install the software of for this device and creat a dial up for your to be able to connect to the internet. Here's the link where you can download the driver and the procedure on how to create Dial up.
Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)
Well in case it always try you to connect through dial-up. Check the option (connect to and change in broadband, in case you using a aol software to connect to internet Hope this will resolve your issue.
The broadband modem connects to thecomputer using the USB or nework port not the phone cable port.
The network port has 8 wire connectors and whilst they both look similar the network (10baseT) port is wider than the phone port.
You also need to configure or reconfigure the model to let it know which cable you are using to connect the modem to the computer.
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.
It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.
If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.
If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.
If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.
