What model do you have. Perhaps whomever you purchased it from left the modem card out of it not knowing you would need it. There are 56k modem cards avail. that stick out of the PCMCIA slot. It is always an option. You can get them for like $5 on ebay.

Dial up requires a modem instead of a LAN card. It uses an RJ-11 phone plug and not the bigger RJ-45 LAN plug. You also need a dial up internet service provider, and possibly software to make the phone call. There is a Connections setup in Internet Options, under Control Panel if you don't have the software.
So, you are right on track. Just make the call and enter the user name and password to finalize connection.

Your laptop should have an ethernet port on your laptop. If you can plug your laptop with a Cat5 network cable and plug that cable into your internet source you should be able to connect to the internet.
Your internet source could be your modem or router. If you have dial-up, you would have to check to see if your netbook has a dial-up modem built into it.
If you do not have these available and no wireless available, you will be unable to connect to the internet.
Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.
You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.
Disconnect the modem from the phone socket and connect a normal phone to this outlet. If you cannot get a dial tone and cannot dial out, then there is a fault with this socket. You need to get it repaired before you can dial out and conect to the Internet.
