Broken connection

  jtw 14:24 08 Mar 2003

Have just broken end off lead where phone line enters pcmcia modem on my oldish Iridium laptop.
Modem seems ok but says no dialling code.
Local shop says only buy new modem - will cost £50.
Surely I can just get the replacement lead somewhere!!

Is it the cable from the telephone junction box to your PCMCIA modem that has broken, or, the PCMCIA card itself?

If it just the cable then replace the cable.

Would love too but the 15pin connector is "only sold with the modem" says my local dealer.
Is this true? Where can I get the lead with the flimsy connector at the end?
