I've been asked by a friend to install broadband on her computer. I know from past experience that it's a doddle when the PC has a USB port, but her's hasn't. There's only a parallel port. Is it possible to install a USB port in an old PC and if so, how?
many thanks, everyone, for all your help. I hope I find it as easy as you say it is! I have an uncanny knack in finding snags in everyhing I do on computers! If history repeats itself, I'll be back to worry you again.
very reassuring. I'm 81 years old, so I should have learned a trick or two by now!! I strongly suspect that my friend will opt for a new PC, since hers is 7 years old (I sold it to her 3 years ago)and gives us both a fair amount of trouble. I might take it over, strip it down and install Linux for experimental purposes. I'm very impressed with Firefox and Thunderbird, which I've used for some months.
