Same as any network,you need a router or you won't be able to access the internet at the same time. since you don't have much room, I'd go either with a linksys "n" wireless setup or buy any cheap wired router & hook them up.

How to connect Satellite 4090XCDT laptop to ADSL?


You computer was set up to use a modem to access the internet.

You computer does not have USB, so you cannot use Wi-Fi.

You need to purchase a 2 x PC Card Type II or 1 x PC Card Type III Ethernet card. Then you can plug a Ethernet cable into the ADSL router.

Won't connect to internest.


first there should be 2 cables connected the device.
1) power adapter
2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector
with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet
with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem
there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies.
with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection.

The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.

1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer.
2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port.
3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.

4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider
5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes.
6. Now power on your PC.

Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.

Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

Internet connection Disc check


You should not need to run any disk to connect to the modem. Simply connect the ethernet cable to the modem and then to the all-in-one.

Once this is done you should see one of the network connections showing connected.

Also, you most likely checked disk space and not RAM.

Modem


You want a 56K modem at least. Modems are becoming less common these days as brpadband (DSL/Cable/WiFi,etc) are becoming more cost effective.

Does your computer take PCI cards? If so, you might be able to find a PCI modem. There are also some serial modems still being sold. If your computer has 9 pin serial ports, you could try to use a serial modem. I think there also might be a USB modem that you could use, providing your PC has serial ports.
