RJ 45 to RJ11 conversion?

I'm considering an HP 2133 Mini-Note for travel computing, but it does not appear that the unit comes with an RJ 11 connector. Many places I travel (rural US and Latin America) have only dial-up connectivity. Is there a converter for the RJ 45 that I can use to connect a telephone line? I'd welcome any other ideas, too......

But you elected to not share make, model of your laptop. So I can't be anymore specific. Try this. Go back to the web page for your laptop and see what modem they suggest.

Why? Because we have PC-Card slots and now we see PC-Express slots. I can't tell what your machine has.
