I've recently aquired a dell inspiron 9400 laptop, came with no discs etc. No, it's not stolen ! The problem is, i'm trying to set up a wired internet connection, it's got an internal modem but i don't think the drivers are installed. I've browsed the dell support but there are several download options and i'm confused. How do i find out which drivers i need & is that all i need to do ? Any suggestions appreciated.
I might sound a little silly here but i'm a newbie at this. Downloaded & installed the drivers, seems to recognise the modem now. Do i use the big phone socket or the small one ? My desktop is wired to a router with the big socket type but i want to connect the laptop through the internal modem. I'm going abroad on business you see. Can i just install my ISP software & follow the install & setup instructions ?
