Hi Guys,

I have a ME desktop system, I have a Windows XP disk, I can install the XP system but I only have USB ports, how do I connect my ADSL internet line? will I need to purchase a board with the phone wire connection or could I use one of the USB ports and buy something to allow me to make the connection to the internet?

Your expert help would be appreciated.

Regards Ron M

If you connect to the internet via a broadband USB modem, then use one of your current ports. A broadband phone line doesn't physically connect to your computer unless you're lucky enough to have an internal ADSL modem card, which most people don't.
