hello, i recently bought a used computer from a business that no longer needed it. i took it home and tried to get onto the internet. no luck. i checked the network connections and it seemed that he had dial up set up on the computer. i found my internet provider cd and tried to install it onto the computer but the cd cannot detect my internet modem. i have the computer hooked up directly to the modem. i tried resetting the computer and the modem and still no luck. i messed around with the network connections as well and still no luck. is there something that im missing? any help would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy:

How do you connect to the net - dial-up or broadband (DSL or cable)?

Does this "new" system have an NIC or just a dial-up port?
