My mother just got a new COMPAQ Presario Laptop with Windows 7.
Previously she had a COMPAQ Presario Desktop with Windows XP Home, which we connected to out DSL modem with a USB cord.
I myself have a rather old Gateway using Win 98, and the only way I can get internet is through a Ethernet cord. With this new laptop though the only way she is able to get the internet is through an Ethernet cord, as when I plugged in the USB cord there was no internet at all.
Is there a way to get it through the USB cord as we had it before so both of us can have internet without having to switch Ethernet cords?
