No, it can't be used for dial-up. Lots of new computers these days don't come with a dial-up modem fitted. They are in the form of a PCI card - not expensive and easy to fit. This is the sort of thing: click here If your new computer is under warranty, which I suspect it is, be careful about voiding the warranty by doing a bit of DIY. Contact the supplier for guidance.
hi guys thanks for the info kind of thought as much, it was a friends house i was at helping him set up his new computer as the old one was knackered, hes getting sky broadband next week with a wireless modem connection
stupid question now....will theis new nic ethernet card be fine for his broadband connection
will the sky wireless modem come with a short cable to connect to the cpu, as they sit next to each other, seems the easy way to do it?
or would he be better to get a wireless adaptor for the back of the nic card, if thats what you have to do
cheer will maybe this should have been a new thread
