Yep, but it has to be told what it's being connected to before it'll work.

I'll leave it for one of the "techies" to explain it to you.

hi if you just plug the telephone line in to it

you need to have a dial up Internet account before you will get anywhere

as for wireless connection if you go into a Internet cafe you will normally be given or have to ask for the secret key to access the Internet wirelessly

you have to tell your laptop to search for wireless connection near and the cafe will tell you there wireless Sid (name)

also if you have a full Internet security software you may find this will restrict you joining the wireless available

windows firewall and a good anti virus is just as good

Hi Pineapple

try connecting your laptop to the modem via an ethernet cable (a network cable). Look at the back of the modem - in addition to the phone cable connection there might be 1 or 4 network sockets.

Alternatively if hubby has a wireless modem try using the wireless connection on your laptop - remember that if hubby has put a security password on the wireless connection you will have to put that into the settings of your computer (when you search for a wireless network it lets you know if they are secured by password or not)

if that doesnt work then chuck it (only joking!)
