First let me say if I posted this in the wrong area I am sorry.
Here is the problem. I have a new laptop computer that does not have a phone jack unfortunetly it look like I will be moving to an area that does not have DSL or Cable. I have been looking on the internet for a solutioin but am not finding what I think I need. I need to either find a way for my new computer to look up to a phone jack or I need to make a dail up wireless network I have read a little about them but I do not know if it will be possible or very hard for me to do all the information I am finding is several years old.

If you do not have a PCMCIA slot on the laptop or a built in modem, as it appears you do not. You can always use a USB modem such as this example.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
