I have a Compaq Presario running xp professional with a phone jack for internet connection(no Ethernet port). I would like to connect it to my att frontier modem that uses cat 5. I bought a j5 jue130 gigabit Ethernet adapter(that has a j45 to usb).I would like to know if this computer is capable of connecting to my service and if so how do I configure my computer. I loaded the correct driver for the adapter but can't get connection.

Hello grafenwohr

Have you looked at using the computer with a wireless connection from your modem ?


Check with your Internet Service Provider for setting it as wireless.. Who is your ISP ?


Any Good ?

Acer Computer with LG Monitor and Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7.1

Windows 64bit  8.1 - Always fully updated

Firefox / Google Chrome / Internet Explorer Browsers

Usually a home helper here or with friends and nimble fingered ladies who would rather sew or dust, but not clean the bugs out of a computer ...

My isp is frontier...they bought out att uverse.

I do have wireless for my other computers but I have no idea if the Compaq can do wireless. do you need a special adapter?

what I need to know is if this computer is capable of connecting to a modern enternet connection and if so, how to I set up.

Is there a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager with the adapter connected? The adapter is supposed to be compatible with USB 2.0 even though it was designed for USB 3.0. If there are no yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager I would RMA it.


I have successfully installed one of these adapters on a XP computer but it was not Gigabit. I downloaded the driver and it connected via Ethernet. There was nothing to configure. The computer should not matter as long as the USB port is functioning correctly.


If the computer is a desktop then you probably do not have wireless. There are USB wireless adapters for desktops. What is the model number of the Compaq if a laptop? Edit: Should have looked at the post title.  :(
