Not sure what you mean.

What operating system is on the laptop - if win98 or newer, it should work fine. Does it have a network port / usb connection? Does it connect to the internet as it is now? If so, it should also be fine for broadband.

Sorry i mean i want to have broadband running on this laptop but its Win 98 and about 200mhz or something like that.
I thought your computer might have to have min specs etc

The internal or external bit is refering to the modem etc.
