Question about Computers & Internet
I am almost completelly computer-illiterate (just enough to think I know what I'm doing) but I really thought this computer was ready-to-go like the company said. I don't even understand how to make an internet connection with it! All I have where I live is dial-up;but I don't even see a phone connection on the back of this thing. So how would one go about it? I am really embarassed to even admit to this...
Yeah, most desktops these days don't include the modem, since modems are like obselete, due to DSL/Cable service. However, laptops do come with both RJ45 & RJ11 ports (ethernet & phone jack ports). I don't recommend going to Best Buy for anything!..there customer service is really bad. Plus, once u open a computer product, then decide that u don't need it or want something else...they will charge u 15% re-packaging fee. Do you have a Frys Electronics near you? or just a local computer store. I like to most of my computer products online. check out www.buy.com their service is great and fast.

If it's a new computer and especially one that is compact then there might not be a modem inside. You can get a USB modem that will plug into a USB port, this will act like an external modem and provide the phone jack. You should be able to get one at your local computer store or Best Buy. Should be about $20 to $30.
