I am getting High Speed DSL next week and I understand that I will be receiving a modem and installation software. I have been told that I just plug the modem into the network adapter connector on the back of my Dell computer purchased last year. That's all fine but when I go to the Device Manager and look at Network Adapters there is something listed as "Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection" but it has a large red "X" against it. My question is:- Does that mean I have one but it isn't activated and/or will the installation software come with a driver which will activate it or do I need to purchase something else? Sorry if this is a daft question but I'm not that techno-savvy and I thank you in advance for your help.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
