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.
