Can you give us some more info than that? Normally you'll plug an ethernet cable between your computer and broadband modem.

More details required,.. http://tinyurl.com/38ksk8 is what it looks like,..do you have a 'port' like that?,..

Get youself a USB modem. (Plenty for sale on here). Almost all computers have a USB port. USB 2.0 is not required as the modem only requires USB1.1

When I say "USB Modem" I mean a USB Broadband modem. A 56K modem is for dial up connections only.

Shazzah1 Is it the install that says that ?? and do you have an Onboard Network port. If yes then ring your supplier and they will walk you through it. If you don't Have a Network port, Then just buy one for the PC

Yes the cd to install broadband said that.
Onboard network port??

Shazzah1 would sort of help if you told us which adsl 'modem' you have and what computer, we usually like to know which 'windows' it is,..
