No you don't need a modem. You do need an ethernet card in the new computer, if it doesn't have an onboard ethernet, (most new boards do) you could either use the one out of the old computer or buy a new one.
So I use DSL broadband to access the internet. I use the ethernet cable.
So my question is...when I buy a new desktop computer, do I need to get a 56K modem? In other words, does the system need a modem for any other reason than accessing the internet? Or if I use broadband, is it just a waste of money?
Simple question...Thanks for help.
