There are 2 ways to get dsl one is a USB to 10/100 Ethernet Adapter.I got 1 off eBay.the other is 10/100 land card with XJACK connector.It was geven to me I don't know were to get it.On the box is 3Com Office Connect.Web site is 3com.com.I have a Dell Cp and both of them work on it .I have Qwest DSL.
This is a long way to get home, but it should work for you. High speed would be best so you don't tie-up the phone line. Anyway, on your main PC, go to www.mikogo.com and install their software. Very small and trouble free. Next, get teh old Dell on line and go to the same website. There is a large red area on the homepage. Click on 'Join Meeting' in the upper right corner of the red and follow the prompts. You will need to click RUN twice. Eventually you will come to a window prompting for a meeting id. Go back to the other PC and launch a meeting, enter the meeting id on the laptop and click join the meeting. On the main pc click on the red M near the clock and switch presenter to the laptop. On the laptop, click on the red M and go to remote control and give RC to yourself on the other PC. You will now be driving the laptop from your main PC. Go full screen. There will be a small menu bar at the top of the screen. On the left side you will see an icon of two arrows following each other. That's the file transfer. Open that and start moving the files you want from the laptop to the main PC.

This sounds like a lot of effort, but it is really quite straight forward and easy. I have used this to work on PCs across the USA, China, Australia and New Zealand. The best thing is it is free and it offers file copy, which most of the remote software does not.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you!
