Not unless you ask for them. they are considered an ancient approach, and most folks actually don't use them even for faxing.

How do i find out if my dell inspiron 530 has a built in modem?


Dell-branded monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, microphones for telephonic modems, docking stations/port replicators, networking products, and all associated cabling are included.


Please open the Device manager, you can locate the device listed next to MODEMS in the device manager.
You can use the internal model for the dial up connections.

Trying to connect to internet but screen says internal modem has no driver - it sees no modem


If you're compuer is connected to a router or DSL/Cable modem through Ethernet connection, you don't need to have to use internal modem. Internal modem are just for dial up connection.

If everytime you launch IE browser and it gives you that prompt, your browser may have set up to connect everytime to a dial up connection. Try to check these settings on your IE:

1. Go to Start> Settings> Control Panel> Internet Options
2. On Internet Options, go to Connections tab.
3. Delete everything under Dial Up and Virtual Private Network Settings, Or just set it to 'Never Dial A Connection'.
4. Click on LAN Settings button.
5. On the next window, uncheck everything (particularly the proxy setting).
6. Click OK all the way out.

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...


You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Try to make a new connection shortcut and make sure your telephone line is properly connected on your modem. Also make sure that your password and username is correct. another thing is check that your system date is correct.. Hope this works ! ITTech7574

Was able to get connected to the internet twice to day when i came back in to get on the computer it couldnt connect to the internet said no dial tone. this is a new dell computer with an external modem...


Generally this is an indication of a modem failure. If there have been any storms in your area, then the modem may have been zapped. The dial tone curcuit is normally the first casualty when a modem gets hit with more power than normal.

Provided that your telephone is functional on that line (Unplug modem, and connect a handset if this is a modem only line and see if the handset gets a dial tone, this is a good check to make sure the line is functional)

Modem for dial-up


Well I hate to be the one to break the news but their is no such thing as a fast modem. They are all 56Kbps which is slow....the only fast modem is a DSL modem, but that is outside the computer and it gets hooked up with your phone company or your Internet Service Provider. Check the invoice or packaging slip and see if it says "DSL Modem capability"..if so then you are ok but your ISP has to install it.
