Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

No landline so is there a dongle like the ones used for laptops, that I can use on my tower system computer to get me online. if so which one.


Answers :

I don't really understand your question.

To get online you need an internet service provider and a modem. The Compaqs came with a dial-up modem standard and, and may have an Ethernet network card installed as well, depending on the model. If you get a cable or DSL connection you will be supplied with the necessary modem. Most modems supplied now offer USB connections as well as Ethernet, so if you don't have a network card you probably won't need one.

Once you have signed up with a service provider, they will give you all the information you need to connect to their service.
