Question about Computers & Internet
I have a desk top computer I bought 4 years ago. I just now decided to put it on high speed but the modem will not work. I can recieved dial up with no problem but it will not connect to high speed.
Your PC needs a Network Interface Card (NIC) as stated above. If you don't know what this is, you should consider a USB NIC. That is of course that you PC has been upgraded to USB 2.0, if not you will need to get a PCI plug in card and open you PC up to connect it.
As you now know, a connector between your high speed modem and your PC will not plug into your PC's modem. That's not how it works.
Once you have a NIC card up and running just follow the instructions with with cable modem for connections.
