    hey all

    have been trying to setup an internet connection for one of my friends and after a long wait she had finally got a cable to connect her PC to her phone line however it cannot find a dial tone. On closer inspection it transpires that she has an Intel(R) Pro/100 VE network connection and no modem that i can find. does she need to purchase a new modem or is there a way to setup her internet using this connection (either dial-up or broadband)?

    thanks in advance

    For broadband --> dsl, she needs a modem supplied by her ISP.--> Intel(R) Pro/100 VE network is the network card.
    For dial up...she needs an internal modem --> should be in the device manager.

    I couldn't find an internal modem on her system, so am guessing that there isn't one, so she either needs to purchase an internal or contact her ISP and get a broadband router/modem from them?

    For DSL---> yes she needs a modem...which connects to the phone line and then to the computer ( the bigger looking phone like plug in the back of the computer).

    For dial up...she would only need a phone line connected to the phone jack in the back ...but again, foe either, she needs to have the service with her ISP.
