Laptop with 56k modem required

  PhiltheFragger 17:18 07 May 2010

Have a customer who wants to buy a laptop for use in France at their remote farmhouse. They do not have broadband in the area so need a machine with a 56k modem to do a dial up.

I cant see any available via the major suppliers, So does anyone know of one, or are there USB modems available that will work with Windows 7

You will not get one. Only way would be to buy a External 56k usb modem

You may be able to buy a second hand one

Saying that I think the HP 510 that I am typing this on as both 56k and Ethernet

I may need one when I get W7. I found one in Amazon for £13.75 which works on W7 although currently out of stock. Click
