I had a question about newer laptops that have 56k modem capability, but don't have a RJ-11 (56k modem) port. For instance, the Toshiba line of A305-S6858 (sold at Best Buy and can be seen here: http://www.bestbuy.c...=1212192350309), A305-S6857 (sold at Circuit City and can be seen here: http://www.circuitci...rchSection=All), and other similar models seem to list the capability of having 56k modem speed, but don't have the modem included.
I was wondering if something like the "US Robotics 56k modem device and software" (can be seen here: http://cgi.ebay.com/...QQcmdZViewItem) would enable me to connect to the Internet via a modem with the laptop models I mentioned above?
I'm looking into getting Hi-Speed Internet in the near future (it's been put on hold due to some recent family issues), but I'd still like to have the option of connecting via an RJ-11 (phone line) modem in the event Hi-Speed Internet is down or not working optimally even after I get Hi-Speed Internet. For now, though, I'd primarily use the RJ-11 (phone line) Modem to connect to the Internet.
Therefore, would using a device such as US Robotics allow me to do that with those laptops I mentioned above or would I be better off purchasing a laptop that comes with an RJ-11 port, such as the Toshiba Satellite P305-S8842, seen here: http://www.circuitci...oductDetail.do).
I'd appreciate any and all assistance and advice - thank you.
My current laptop is currently making a whining, whistling, or whirring noise when I boot up, and it continues even after the boot-up process is complete - I don't know if that is the fan or what it is - if anyone has any advice on how to clean the inside of a laptop and/or to rectify this situation, I'd greatly appreciate any advice and information on that as well - thank you.
Please take care and have a great day!
