Question about Toshiba Satellite M40-S417TD Notebook
I have a toshiba laptop that I want to use a phone line with. There is no place for the phone jack. Is there an adapter for it?
If your laptop has no port for a phone line, there is no modem. I am assuming you want to use your laptop with dial-up internet service. You will need to add a modem(there is no adapter to do this job), there are many connection types for external modems nowadays, PCMCIA, ExpressCard, USB are some examples. USB is the most popular, like the one at the top of this page: http://www.zoom.com/products/dial_up_external_usb.html
Hopefully this helps.

Yes, but you need more than just a place for a phone jack. You need a modem. The type you need depends on what you have available for connections. For example, if you have a PCMCIA slot, there are a number of modems that you could slide into it. They will come with an RJ11 receptacle in which to put your phone cable. Google "pcmcia card modem" and you'll get a bunch of hits. That's the most likely.
If you don't have a card slot but do have a USB connection available, or a serial connection available you can get modems that connect to those. If none of those work (I'd be surprised) post what connectors you have available and we can probably figure a way.
