Using the modem (select models only) The modem must be connected to an analog telephone line using a 6-pin, RJ-11 modem cable (included with select models only). In some countries, a country-specific modem cable adapter is also required. Jacks for digital PBX systems may resemble analog telephone jacks, but they are not compatible with the modem.
Connecting a modem cable WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not plug a modem cable (included with select models only) or telephone cable into the RJ-45 (network) jack. To connect a modem cable: Plug the modem cable into the modem jack (1) on the computer.
Connecting a country-specific modem cable adapter Telephone jacks vary by country. To use the modem and the modem cable (included with select models only) outside the country in which you purchased the computer, you must obtain a country-specific modem cable adapter. To connect the modem to an analog telephone line that does not have an RJ-11 telephone jack, follow these steps: Plug the modem cable into the modem jack (1) on the computer.
Selecting a location setting Viewing the current location selection To view the current location setting for the modem, follow these steps: Select Start > Control Panel. Click Clock, Language, and Region. Click Regional and Language Options. Your location is displayed under Location. Chapter 1 Using the modem (select models only)
Adding new locations when traveling By default, the only location setting available to the modem is a location setting for the country in which you purchased the computer. As you travel to different countries, set the internal modem to a location setting that meets the operating standards of the country in which you are using the modem.
Solving travel connection problems If you experience modem connection problems when using the computer outside of the country in which you purchased it, try the following suggestions. ● Check the telephone line type. The modem requires an analog, not a digital, telephone line. A line described as a PBX line is usually a digital line.
Connecting to a local area network Connecting to a local area network (LAN) requires an 8-pin, RJ-45 network cable (not included). If the network cable contains noise suppression circuitry (1), which prevents interference from TV and radio reception, orient the circuitry end of the cable (2) toward the computer. To connect the network cable: Plug the network cable into the network jack (1) on the computer.
