Hi I've hooked up an older model laptop (compaq presario 1235 notebook with windows 98 OS) and have no idea how to get this particular pc to connect to internet. I currently have dsl access and its been a cinch getting my newer model PCs on the net in the past, but i'm stumped when it comes to this machine. It has no wifi capabilities that I know of and no place to plug in my ISP's ethernet cord ; however, it does have a place where a basic phone line can be linked to it :??: . Thanks in advance to those who can help.

You will need a dial-up account with an ISP in order to make use to that modem.

(You're old enough to know what a dial up modem is, right? I FEEL SO OLD EVEN ASKING. :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  )

hula - just to add - if you have USB - Lookup NetGear FA120 USB to ethernet converter. Then you can use DSL.
