If you have only a DSL or Cable modem, that doesn't have an integrated Router, then you'll need to get a router to use more than one computer. The broadband modem, will connect to the uplink port of the router, and give you usually 4 wired ports and up to 50 wireless connections.

Here is an example from linksys

My compaq prasario is telling me I have no ip address how can i solve this problem i cannot connect to the internet


How are you connecting to the Internet now¿ That is a serious question since I will assume that this is a second computer hooked up to the same connection you want with the Presario. I also will assume that you don't have a Gateway / Router between the modem and the actual computer. I will assume that you want both of these computers on the Internet at the same time so you will want to hook up the Gateway. To reset the modem so that it will accept a different MAC Address (It's a computer thing) you will need to remove all the connections to the modem and pull out the battery that is behind a hidden door. The modem will need to be in this condition for 1 minute and then it can be hooked up to the new Gateway or Computer however you want it to be hooked up now that the modem has been reset. Good luck.

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

If you have a router with two thernet ports you can connect them together using this.
Otherwise you can take the hard drive out and connect it to your new computer but this can be tricky to do.
The other thing you could do is buy a USB hard disk caddy. Fit you hard drive into this and then connect it to the USB port of your new computer. Make sure the caddy will take your size and type of hard disk.

It doesn't come with speakers. see for yourself here.

If you want external speakers, connect the speakers to the back of the computer. the port will be a small, round green hole. to connect 2 speakers, you need a 3.5mm splitter.
