Dial up modem for Express card slot?

by Learner7 / September 9, 2008 8:03 PM PDT

I have an Express card slot on my Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo laptop which has wireless connection, but I want to be able to use dial up connection when taking the notebook where there is no wireless connection. What sort of modem would work in this slot. I phoned Fujitsu but they refused to recommend anything, so I don't know what to look for

I don't know if they exist as an Express card, but they sure do in a USB variant. / is just one I found with google to show you. It's not meant as a recommendation for the shop, nor for this particular one.

You might like to visit your favorite local shops to see what they have.

Try getting a usb-external modem, you can get one for about $30.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
