If you have a phone modem, it usually has two jacks, one goes to the wall and the other is for a phone. There will be little icons that will represent a wall jack or phone.

If all you see is one large "jack", that may be the ethernet or NIC jack; you might not have a modem, as many newer computers don't come with a phone modem.

It's cheap enough to buy a phone modem that plugs into a USB port, or to get an internal modem.

With the model number, someone might give a link to a picture showing the ports available, and their titles.

Tip

Linking your system connection to Air


TEMAB COMPUTERS ICT

You moving to the world of internetworking, as in you connecting your system with a dial up or modem so you can access the internet from your home, office and everywhere you may be the following are to be considered .
1. A computer. In order to use dial-up you must make sure not only that you have a computer but that it is going to work with your dial-up service. Some ISP's do not require that you install any software to get connected, so just about any computer would work. However, if they do require that you download their software or run a CD to start their service, you need to make sure that their software is compatible with your service.
For example, your computer may not have a CD drive if it's a compact laptop. Or perhaps you have an older operating systems like Windows 95 or 98. Many installations are not compatible with these older computers. If you have a Mac or Linux computer, you must make sure that the ISP will be compatible with it, or it might not work. If you are using the modem that came with the computer you have to make sure that the modem is installed or updated enough that it will not cause slow connections. Check with a computer technician if you are not sure there is a modem or that it's in good working order.
2. A modem. If your computer does not have a modem, or you wish to use a separate external modem, make sure that it is the correct type of modem. It must be a dial-up modem--broadband modems will not work. Also make sure that your modem is going to be compatible with the services you would like to have on your dial-up. For example, if you would like to add an Internet Call-waiting feature on your dial-up service, you need to have a V.92 standard computer. Otherwise you will not be able to be notified of incoming calls while you are online. Also, if the modem is not in proper working order, for example, it is missing it's latest driver software or has been damaged or corrupted, you will not be able to use it. Thirdly, if the modem is too old and does not have the latest standard, it may not connect as fast as a new one would, so if you know your modem is not V.92, you may need to get a new one so you can get better connection speeds.
3. A land-line telephone. This means your phone line must be an analog phone--cable phones, digital phones, and (usually) cellphones will not work. Dial-up uses analog phone lines because of how it converts and transmits information. It's just like a normal telephone. If you try to use dial-up on any other type of phone, you will get an error connecting because the modem cannot detect the analog dial-tone. Check with your phone provider if you are not sure if it is compatible to dial-up. Also, keep in mind that you will not be able to use your phone and the Internet at the same time, so if you wish to keep your phone line free for telephone calls, you may need to add a second line to your home. However, if you don't want two lines, simply add call waiting and caller ID to you land line and if you have a V.92 modem, you should be notified of incoming calls while you're online.
4. A telephone cord. This may sound silly, but some people do forget about this step. In order to have Internet through dial-up, you must have a phone cord attached from the back of the modem or the back of your computer to the phone jack in the wall. You might want to get a splitter so your phone line can share the phone jack with your computer, or you might be able to connect your computer to your phone or vice versa, using the "line in" and "line out" jacks on the phone or on the back of the computer.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that your telephone cord needs to be as short as possible. Any cord longer than 6 feet could affect your ability to connect to the Internet, or affect how fast you can connect. The longer the cord the more likely you are to have slow or dropped connections. Also, you may need to get a back up phone cord in case the cord you intend to use is damaged. If you buy a new modem, an extra phone cord is usually included.
After all that then you can move to meet an Internet service provider to have their modem or dial up. and their setup for the dial up giving to you. From there have a wonderful browsing and meting people

I have a dell 2400 desktop computer. I recently got FIOS and they hooked my wife's computer to their router with an ethernet cable. Can I also hook my dell up the same way?


Depends on the hardware. Is it a router or modem? Does is have extra ports in the back,

Router with extra ports, just connect new device with wire or even wireless if it has wireless.

Modem, most likey you have to buy a router.

I found my computer cable modem. the tip is green on the cable out. Is this the modem cable the right cable?


not all modem setup are all the same. However, you should see an Ethernet port, a power cord port, and a phone cable port at the back of the modem.

You connect the modem to the computer using the ethernet port (biggest port), then connect the modem to the phone line via the phone line port and power cord to power.

Hope that works,
Regards.

How do I hook up an HP v40 to my PC and a cable modem so that my FAX works?


You probably need to hook up to a landline telephone line, too. Or, you can use an "e-fax" service that lets you send faxes via internet. Basically, they would send your fax as middleman to the recipient. Windows Vista except Business version) does not have inherent fax support like Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional. And programs such as WinFax did not upgrade to Vista and 7. But, your fax modem should have come with some faxing software.

You put in modem card and then run telephone line to back. You can usually run a line to a telephone from the 2nd connection on the back with the telephone symbol below it.

Hope this helps you a litle.

Browser and email continuously won't load


I would have to say this is a problem with Comcast, call them and ask for a line test, tell them that you are having this problem on multiple computers, and you have even tried connecting directly to the modem. If they can run a test on the line, hopefully that will shed some light on the issue.

Often times with Cable/Phone companies, the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, be instant that they check, at the very least they can check connection to your modem from their end.

Hi Brenda,

Your All In One wants a phone line hooked directly to it. It won't fax without a "POTS" line directly hooked to it. POTS stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" which is the line with good old dial tone on it.

I had my grandson hook up the router and all seemed to be working fine, but this morning I found I have no phone service. Can you tell me how to remedy the problem. Thanks, Betty Mahoney email: ...


The router has nothing to do with phone service - it's the modem that's plugged into the phone line. Unplug the modem from the phone line. If you don't get phone service back within 30 minutes, use a different phone to report loss of phone service to the phone company. (Depending on the company, it could take up to 30 minutes for the computers to restore service after a short has been removed.)

If that's the case - that unplugging the modem clears it up, call the phone company's internet tech support number.

I am useing DSL (westell modem) the modem is working but when I hook up my router WRT54G I am unable to connect to bellsouth internet.


I had a similar problem when I installed my DSL service. The problem I had was that the IP address for the modem and the wireless router ended in 0. i.e. 192.169.1.0. I had to chage the routers default IP to something line 192.168.1.10. Try this and see if it helps. You have to log onto your router without the modem connected to do this.

Trying to hook up belkin wireless router to cable modem and don't know how the hook-up should be


Hello,

If you have your pc connected directly to your broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.

Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.

After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.

Thanks
