Question about Dell Inspiron 5100 Notebook
How do you install a modem for the internet
Posted on Oct 08, 2008
First do you have the following:
1. Modem & Software
2. Telephone line
4. Internet account
If Yes, then plug in the modem into the telephone line, the modem into the PC, power on the modem. The PC should then see the new device and install the drivers or ask you for the drivers. If latter, insert the driver disk that came with the modem.
I'm asumming your running XP....
goto "Connect to" - "Show all connections" (Or "Control Panel" - "Network Conections")
Select Create new connection",
Select "Connect to the internet" press next
Select "Set up my connection manually" press next
Select "Connect using a dail-up modem" press next
Enter a name for the connection, this can be anything you like.
Then just follow the instructions and enter the information supplied by your ISP (Internet Provider). This would include:Username, password & telephone access number.
Hit connect and you should be up and running.
