Hi,Most laptops has built in modem and has a port where you can directly connect the phoneline. A router is not needed since it is only dedicated for broadband connections. To check if a modem is installed, below are the following steps: For Windows 7
- Click Start and select Control Panel
- Click on the dropdown arrow beside View by and select Small Icons
- Double click on Phone and Modem Options
- Click on the Modem Tab
Note: If under the Modem Tab the box is empty, means that there is no modem installed yet. Please call Dell. If there is, please check the Private Message area below for further information. Make sure that you are signed in to be able to see this area.Let us know the results.Paolo M.
