Hello all, I'm setting up an (old) laptop for a friend in Ireland (Republic of), he just wants to use it for dial-up internet access. I live in the UK so the idea is to buy all the stuff I need before I go, as it's way cheaper here and my friend lives miles from anywhere so it will be difficult to get hold of stuff when I'm there. Will any modem work (I'm looking for a USB external type), or do I need something special? Also, what leads do I need to connect to the phoneline? Are the connections there the same as we use here (RJ-11)? If anyone can help, I'll be eternally grateful! Thank you all. A.M.
