Question about Computers & Internet
My parents just bought an emachine EL1331G-03W. When they connect the phone line from the tower to the phone jack (they still have dial up), they lose telephone service. This is before even trying to connect to the internet.
Hi, I checked the specs for this pc and it only has a Ethernet port. See specs below.

Testimonial: "Most logical answer! Emachines couldn't tell me that? They are returning it to purchase a different brand. Will be careful with next purchase. TY!"
The specifications I find for that model have a RJ45 network connection but I see no modem. I suspect they are plugging the phone into the network jack which will kill the phone line
