do you have a headphone and mic sockets on the modem, because that is where you need to plug it in

inspiron is a laptop and has only 2 jacks so i must have it right.

They're not the right kind of jacks for the 'phone dialer tho'. jolorna is correct - you need jacks on the actual modem - and very few systems have them.

Use a telephone.
