Question about Compaq Power over Ethernet 12 Port (230612-001) Network Adapter
This laptop is either (aI think) a Microsoft windows nt or a 95.It says DESIGNED FOR on the computer. It is a compaq armada 1700. Is therre a place to plug in a dsl cable for the internet on it or what? It has a small spce on it but to me it looks like a place for a telephone line. I got this used hoping that I would be able to get on the internet with it. There uis NO instruction manual with it at all. Help!
That phone line will only be for actual phone lines.. as it will be a modem.
If the lappy has an ethernet port (slightly larger than a phone port, but looks the same) you could use that with an ethernet cable to a DSL modem. (the modem has the phone wire plugged into it)
Most laptops have an ethernet port, but yours might be a bit too old perhaps? If that's the case, you can buy either a USB to ethernet adapter (but you might not have that either) or a PCMCIA ethernet card. The latter will definitely work for you, and can be bought second hand VERY cheaply... if not for nothing.
I really hope it has something a bit newer than '95 though... otherwise just getting the internet to work could be a problem. Good luck!
