Using an Internal Modem
Your notebook has an internal modem, an RJ-11 telephone jack,
preinstalled modem drivers, and a modem cable.
Connecting the Modem Cable
Using the RJ-11 Cable
The modem cable may have noise suppression circuitry that
prevents interference with TV and radio reception. The modem
cable must be connected to an analog telephone line.
Ä
CAUTION: Jacks for digital PBX systems may resemble analog
telephone jacks, but are not compatible with the modem.

Using a Country-Specific Modem Cable
Adapter
Software for the internal modem supports multiple countries, but
telephone jacks vary by country. To use the modem and the RJ-11
cable outside the country in which you purchased the notebook,
you must obtain a country-specific modem adapter and define
your location in Dialing Properties.
To connect the modem to an analog telephone line that does not
have an RJ-11 telephone jack:
1. If the modem cable has noise suppression circuitry 1, orient
the circuitry end of the cable toward the notebook.
2. Plug the modem cable into the RJ-11 telephone jack 2 on the
notebook.
3. Plug the modem cable 3 into the country-specific modem
adapter.
4. Plug the country-specific modem adapter 4 into the
telephone jack.

telecommunications regulations/laws of that country. In addition, your
modem may not function properly if the correct country selection is not
made.

telephone line described as a data line, fax machine line,
modem line, or standard telephone line is probably an
analog line.
