This is a very simple process. Simply remove the cover of the CPU, remove any screws holding the modem in place and unplug from the mother board. Plug your new modem into the now open circuits, then proceed with installing any new drivers.

Ok - Here is a picture of a motherboard:

I suspect your existing dialup modem is in an existing PCI Slot on your motherboard, remove the existing dialup modem and "snap" your new one in it's place.

Use the software that came with it to get the correct drivers to work on it, (though I do believe XP and Vista will install without special drivers), but having the correct one for the modem you put in will insure it's working properly.

We are unable to have highspeed internet and have to have dial up but there is no modem on the laptop I have. How do I get a modem downloaded into my laptop to use the dial up at my home?


Hi Guest,
You cannot download a modem for dial-up internet as you do not have an rj11 phone jack on your laptop so you need something like this that is a dial up modem that plugs into your usb socket.

Dial up access


You need to contact an Internet Service Provider in your area who provides a dial up service. You will also need a dial up 56k modem.
The ISP can supply the setup information and maybe able to supply the modem if your computer does not have a built-in modem.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


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.

I CAN'T CONNECT THE MODEM TO MY ACER


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.

I have acer aspire one without a modem


Hello there,

You say you dont have a modem....but you want to connect via dial up?

Well ok, you need to do the following:

1. Contact an ISP (people like Virgin, Tiscali, TalkTalk, etc etc etc)
2. Sign up for the package you want.
3. They will send you a modem. It wont be for dial up but broadband.
4. Connect it and off you go.

However, if you REALLY want to use the internet using dial up you will have to go find an old cheap dial up modem.
BT, Tiscali and a few others do let you use a pay per min rate for dial up, but their is no one I know of that lets you get on line for nothing at all.

The only other service I have heared of was here:
http://www.connect4free.co.uk/
And even they charge 1p per min.

So if I were you.... go broadband as its faster and in the long run, cheaper.

If this has helped you please rate it so that I know.

Thank you.

Do I need a modem card?


If you will be using a DIAL-UP internet for that computer, you really need a PCI dial modem for it and it will come with a setup CD that you need to run to that computer so all software will be installed for that dial up modem and that should be it....
