Where does a dial up modem go in a Dell optiplex 760?


The dial-up modem would install inside the computer in a PCI slot. VERY easy to install but a couple considerations before doing so... There are different sizes depending on whether the OptiPlex is a mini-tower or small form factor case. Also - you would need drivers for the modem that are compatible with the operating system you have installed on the computer.

Is it possible to setup faxing from the dell dimension 8400 pc desktop


Yes, it is possible if you install a printer/fax software, assuming that you already have a dial-up modem (not DSL modem, an old one for dial-up connections). Note that on Windows XP disk there is one simple fax program available. Is is not installed by default, you need to add it manually after the modem's installation.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Got a emachine desktop model EL1331G when i plug


Have you ever gotten on line with your system? I just checked out the specs and it doesn't list a modem as a feature. It does, however, list an RJ45 connection port and this is strictly for Ethernet.

If you had a modem installed, I would suggest you go to Device Manager, (right click on My Computer, select Properties, Hardware and click on the Device Manager button). Find Modem in the list, click on the '+' sign to expand and uninstall the modem. Reboot the system and see how that works out.

Let us know how you made out.

Cheers,

Daughter gave me her computer. she had broadband, I have dial-up, can't get on-line.... no modem????


Hi

A lot of computers these days are supplied with no modem due to the popularity of Broadband.

To check if you have a modem on that computer do the following

Right click on "My Computer". Click "Properties". Select the "Hardware" Tab on the top. Then click "Device Manager". Go down the list until you see "Modems" and click the plus sign to expand it. If you see anything listed here you have a telephone modem installed.

If you want to stay on dial up and there is no modem in the list the only thing you can do is have one installed to the computer. However I cannot recommend this course of action. Dial up is a completely outdated and extremely expensive way of using the internet as you are charged each time the modem connects (like a telephone call). Even if you have a bundle of modem minutes from your provider it is still expensive and slow!!

Contact your provider and see if you can get Broadband in your area. You will not regret it - I guarantee you!

Thanks for using FixYa and please do rate my answer.

I am havimg trouble with setting up a dial up connection says there is no modem


Check that the drivers for your modem is installed,
start / right click computer and choose properties then device manager,,

yellow highlighted componets means that there is an error

If its not install install them, If you need to and dont have the drivers, you can use a program like driver magician to download them for you or give you the hard ware make and modle in which case you can google them

if it is installed then you may need to setup the modem, go into the control panel and select Modems or Dialing devices then add,'
select the modem you want installed and thats it.

Installed Lexmark 1240 but when I try to set up fax it says no modem found


Yes, This assumes that you are hooking the printer upto a 56k/Fax modem on the Computer, Which the Printer already has itself, What you will want to do, Is hook a Phone line upto the the Printer in the appropriate slot, and dont worry about setting the Fax feature up on your Computer, Just Worry about the Scanner, printer. For the Fax Feature, Dial the number on the Printer and It should work without Ever touching the Computer

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.

I try dial up connection.I hear it dialing up.But connection is not succesful.I receive a report.Check plug ins.


Have you checked your phone card on the back of your computer to make sure it is plugged in securely? Unplug it and plug it back in behind the computer and on the wall jack and try again.

Try reinstalling the driver for your modem. If you have the installation disk, put it in your cd rom and follow the onscreen instructions. Choose to replace the current version of the driver.

If you do not have the installation disk, I will need the make and model of your modem card.
