Re: dialup link problem
Are you trying to set up router ? You can set up your router manually, without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Can we have more information about the problem you have when attempting to connect ? The error code and message would me very useful in your case.
For example : 1. If it says the modem is already in use, go to "Network connections" or "Network and sharing center" and delete all existing dial-up connections, then create a new one based on the settings your internet provider gave you.
2. It might be a problem with the login and password. Write both in Notepad on the computer, then copy and paste the information in the required fields in the connection window.
3. It might also be a problem on the telephone line. Try another computer with dial-up modem known to work properly. If the problem repeats on that computer, the problem is on the telephone line. You will need to contact your provider to fix the problem.
That means that the modem cannot detect the correct (or any) dial tone when it picks up the line. Connect a normal; telephone to the line and lift the receiver. If you hear a normal dial tone, then the line is ok. Ithat is the case, then the modem may be faulty. You could try atz command and see what happens. If it is on a pabx or fax machine or something, the dial tone may be non-standard and teh modem won't recognise it. In that case, consult the modem manual for the AT command that tells it to ignore dial tone and dial anyway. You may have to enter that command as well as teh correct command to store that setting, alternatively you can enter the commands as an initialisation string in whatever software you are using to dial.
Hope that helps.
A modem that is on its own card in a computer is for dialup access to internet, via telephone lines. Other modems that do the same thing are built in to laptop computers, and always have a regular telephone-type plug on gthe computer. Dialup access is notoriously slow compared to Broadband (Cable/DSL) connections.
Check the physical connection of the phone line to the computer make sure that it is connected to phone line symbol of the Ethernet adapter. Then make sure that the driver of the adapter is installed properly on the computer or you can try to scan the hardware first before the re-installation of the driver using the adapter.
You need to connect the cable that you used to connect to your PC, to the WAN port on the router (it might say internet). Then, you need to connect one of the computers to one of the LAN ports (might have numbers, so you connect it to 1). You then need to login to the router through your browser (generally the address is http://192.168.1.1/ but you should check the documentation) and ask your ISP for the PPPoE information so you can setup your router to dialup for you (otherwise you could use the dialer you've had on your PC, but that doesn't work as well because you might have to share the internet connection).
