Yes, they do make an External Modem. You can purchase a an external modem and any local computer store or even online.
It can easily be hooked up with a power cable which should be included and a phone cable or a dsl cable depending on if you are getting a dsl modem or a dial up modem.

Either way, the external modem should come with easy to follow directions.
I hope this helps.
Please post a rating if I have answered your question.
Good luck.

How do you replace an internal modem on Dell Dimension 5100 desktop? Can we replace it with an external modem? Do you have to remove the old internal modem before you can replace it with an external modem?...


yes you can replace it with an external modem or you can purchase a PCI card modem and install it. The old internal modem does not have to be removed, but if it helps you can uninstall the drivers for it.

Bought new usb zoom external modem for my windows xp


Best thing for you to do is go on the manufacturer site ... of the modem and go under support and download the latest drivers and software for the modem. There has probably been some updates since the modem has been sitting on the store shelf that address your problem installing the software. I hope this helps.

Need help picking an external modem for an old Dell Insprion 2500


Any computer capable of running Windows ME is capable of supporting any external modem.

In the past, for "internal" modems, there were "hardware" modems and "soft" modems.
The "soft" modems had 50% of the hardware of the "hardware" modem,
and the rest of the "brains" of the modem were embedded
in a software device-driver that gets installed into Windows.

Fortunately, most external modems are *NOT* such "soft" modems.

There do exist external modems that connect to a USB port,
and external USB wireless-devices, if you want a higher-speed connection.

Mt6227 modem driver


Hi,

I am presuming that you are referring to the built-in modem of China made mobile phone such as a Kaiqi.
You can download drivers and pc synchronisation software here :
Drivers for MT6227: http://www.geek-asia.com/wp-content/down...
MoDem Drivers for MT6227 : http://www.geek-asia.com/wp-content/down...
PC Sync Manager : http://www.geek-asia.com/wp-content/down...
password - "www.geek-asia.com"

Alternately, you need to install the USB drivers supposedly saved in the phone memory when shipped from the factory. Likewise saved is a copy of PhoneSuite which must be copied/installed in your PC. This solution was actually posted elsewhere here in FixYa by monir.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to install a modem in gx150


I really wouldn't bother with dialup anymore, you can get a broadband package for the same money.

if you must use dial up, to install a modem,   you can use an external modem which means you don't have to open your pc(invalidating any warranty).

if you really want an internal Modem you can get a PCI modem which can be easily be installed into a free PCI slot,

If your board has an AMR/CNR slot (a small slot specifically designed for modems/network cards) you can buy a modem for that slot (which does not use one of your PCI slots)

Modem


To access the ports you mean via the control panel.  If it is an internal modem then XP would automatically install it as a hardware providing it is connected to the motherboard.  I detected you saying that you rebuilt the PC.  Have you slotted an internal modem into one of the periferal slots or did it use an external modem.  Did you know you dont need a modem to logon to the net unless your dialing up? But if you use broadband most use an external modem that connects fast ethernet connection.  But I suppose you know this after all you rebuilt the machine.
