Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Just bought ASUS K60 which has no telephone jack; only RJ45. Often take laptop places where there is no high speed internet available; only dial-up. Salesman said there is a ''filter'' through which the dial-up signal can be used with a RJ45 jack, and that ethernet card will automatically adjust to the low speed. (phone line in > filter > RJ45 jack > ethernet card) What was he talking about? How can I do this? What hardware needed? Software? configuration?

The salesman is referring to another piece of equipment that can convert the RJ45 or the Ethernet connect to a phone port or RJ11. This equipment might also be inserted in the USB port and at the end of it you will have your RJ11 or phone port.

But honestly, I personally does not seen yet any converter that can convert the RJ45 or Ethernet connection to a phone port or RJ11 type. What I have seen so far was a converter for a USB port to RJ45. If you could still ask the salesman about this, and maybe he could direct where you can get a hold of this converter that he is talking about.

I just bought an asus tranformer book flip tp 500L and can not find the place of the dvd rom?? can anyone help please ???


You could connect the two devices by a network cable (Cat 6 RJ45) and use file sharing, but I prefer to use a USB-to-USB transfer cable, like the one attached. It is USB 3.0 compatible but is still very fast at USB 2.0 speeds.

Describing Cheap Dial Up Internet Connections


Today you can find a 56k modem. Transmit data at a speed of fifty-six Kbit / s V.90 or V.92 protocol. You must understand that this is the fastest available dial-up modem. 56k is the limit of maximum bandwidth of a standard telephone line. Be sure to connect to the Internet in areas with less noise power to prevent low-speed Internet connection. At this pace, you can play online games, download large files, make video conferences or movies from a video streaming site. Many of these applications are not compatible with Internet Dial-face. A broadband cable high-speed, satellite or DSL Internet service are better preferences.

You should expect all to take a little time to coordinate a phone connection, negotiate the protocol and, finally, allow the transmission of data. In some places, this process is slower. Note that the entire system consists of three entities - the ISP, Telephone Company, and the user. All have the power to terminate the Internet connection for some reason.

Yes of course. Before the introduction of the latest 3G wireless high-speed cable and DSL broadband by satellite, it was a bestseller. Today, it's always a good option for remote areas that lack the technology or broadband fiber-to-date. Satellite networks are suitable for rural people who want to get broadband connections faster and reliable. In urban and rural areas, attracts fewer users dial-up packages which do not require very fast network and you want the lowest cost monthly cost for ISPs.

This technology is very similar to digital subscriber line (DSL), because they use a phone line. However, DSL is more preferable because it is much faster and can use the website and answer a call on the same telephone line. Unfortunately, dial-up does not work the same way, the caller will often find your line is busy. In terms of broadband connections, ADSL first. Offers the latest technologies that offer greater speed and accuracy, such as ADSL, SDSL, VDSL and HDSL.

There's no instructions on were any of the wires go to the wireless route(cable not telephone internet) I have internet on my pc but not the lap top please help.


If you are trying to hook up the laptop to the wired connection on your router, then you need a RJ45 type cable sold for about ten bucks. this cable goes into the RJ45 jack on your laptop (looks like a big telephone jack and in any one of the remaining jacks on your router marked 1,2,3 or 4. One of those jacks are occupied by the cable from your computer to your router.

If you are trying to go wireless, then you have to have a built in wireless card or an add on card, and soft ware to access the wireless portion of your router.

How to get dial up internet phone jack wont fit in computer


if your phone jack is bigger, that is RJ45 cable which is the connector for internet access. You need a RJ11 cable which is smaller and it would fit to the phone jack. Consult your pc technician for the full description.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


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)

The RJ11 jack is for connecting to a phone line, your laptop has a built-in phone modem.
You need a network card with a RJ45 jack, there are numerious PCMCIA network card available, there are also USB network devices that you can use. I suggest you use a PCMCIA network card, and leaves the USB port free for other uses.
