    I was able to successfully replace the modem with help from fixya participant input. The original factory modem from Dell (conexant d110 mdc v.9x) stopped dialing, I suspect a power surge from lightning however I don't know this for a fact. I did diagnostics on it when I noticed it was not dialing and it appeared everything was ok, the modem was obviously answering queries from diagnostics and log indicated all was ok. I ordered new modem from Dell exactly off the original invoice, new modem arrived (invoice said mdm,56K,int,mdc, 1.5 liteon). Physically exact same size, connections, everything fit easily into place on the swap. After replacement, computer cannot see new modem. Opened back up, disconnected, reconnected, again everything snugged up just right, still no modem apparant. Popped the old modem back in, shows up immediately, queries just fine but no dialing still. What the heck do ya think is going on?

If you are comfortable with opening up your laptop and replacing it then follow the manual that BBJohn sent you. Other wise most places that have A+ Certified Techs can replace it in an hour if they aren't to busy and will normally cost about $50 to $75 depending on the shop's rate.

    Answer to new modem not detected:

    I'm only guessing here... I would thing that the new modem has a slightly different firmware then the old one and requires driver update.

    Try to uninstall the old modem driver and update the driver from Dell's site.

You can replace it if you know exactlly what you are doing, just open the laptop up, and replace it. Be sure not to touch anything else.

My dial up modem was fried in a power outage. I need to get a new one. Its for a toshiba l45 series. D40 modem. where can I get one


Two choices: order from Toshiba (possibly expensive) or purchase a PCMCIA modem (uses the laptops card slot). You can also try purchasing a USB modem (easiest to install). Head to a computer store for either of these parts.

Slow modem


An option that you can take is to possibly update the firmware of your modem. If that does not work contact your internet provider for a replacement depending on the arrangement you have. (Whether or not the modem is in rental or purchase plan) if its under warranty have it replaced.

Internet connection through Internal modem in Laptop


Two solutions:
First for the more experienced:
find the modem on the underside of the laptop unscrew/ re-seat the modem, test, if it works great, if it doesn't try inserting foam, or paper between the modem and the "black case"... if you cant find the modem locate the manual for the laptop.

second (and possiblely the best) 
Disable the onboard modem and replace it with a USB one

Replace ram in laptop compaq v5201us


Okay.....go to www.crucial.com and figure out what RAM you need to purchase. It will tell you what you need. Then, once you get your memory, unscrew the screw on the bottom of your notebook that covers the RAM and either replace or add the new memory that you just purchased.

Belkin router and modems


i would suggest returning the router and/or purchase a modem router, as it does away with all the connection problems and the need to click dial to connect as a modem router is always on and does not require a main pc to be on. It will also probably be cheaper than buying a seperate modem.
