Hello there,

You say you dont have a modem....but you want to connect via dial up?

Well ok, you need to do the following:

1. Contact an ISP (people like Virgin, Tiscali, TalkTalk, etc etc etc)
2. Sign up for the package you want.
3. They will send you a modem. It wont be for dial up but broadband.
4. Connect it and off you go.

However, if you REALLY want to use the internet using dial up you will have to go find an old cheap dial up modem.
BT, Tiscali and a few others do let you use a pay per min rate for dial up, but their is no one I know of that lets you get on line for nothing at all.

The only other service I have heared of was here:
http://www.connect4free.co.uk/
And even they charge 1p per min.

So if I were you.... go broadband as its faster and in the long run, cheaper.

If this has helped you please rate it so that I know.

Thank you.

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.

Dial up access


You need to contact an Internet Service Provider in your area who provides a dial up service. You will also need a dial up 56k modem.
The ISP can supply the setup information and maybe able to supply the modem if your computer does not have a built-in 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.

Acer aspire 5515 how to connect to internet


check if you have got an internet connection:

try windows update, if windows can access its automatic updates on the microsoft-homeserver,
then it is a browser issue

if so, come again stating: Operaion System used, how connect to internet(dsl, wifi, modem etc.)
and the browser (firefox, internet xplorer, which version, etc)

if not, do same. see you

Check your network settings. It is probably still configured for dialup. You probably need to deactivate the internet setup for the modem, then run the setup wizard for the lan connection again.

Cannot get through internet via ethernet, I Appreciate your help.


You didn't state what kind of net connection you are using, dial-up, cable, sattelite.
If, for instance, you have cable, is the modem connected directly to one computer, or several, via router and ifso on the router is it "wireless" or cable connected?

If you are using anything OTHER THAN dial-up, I recommend, that you unplug the router AND modem, look for "resets" on both, sometimes the reset will look like a small resessed pin that must be pushed on with a pen or toothpick.(hold down for 30 seconds) Leave them unplugged...I would advise 5 minutes, then reconnect cables and power supplys and try again.

If none of this works and you have had electrical storms,(and sometimes wind damages cable if pole mounted) you may have surge-damaged routers/ and or modems. I usually have to reset mine after every lighting storm, and had to replace a damaged router twice. Sadly on another note, I would not recommend vista to anyone, I would however recommend XP media center for computers that have specs for it.
Hope this will help.
