If you load the Modem Driver disc into the laptop you can indeed do as you require.

I have a simple enquiry. I am trying to connect my desktop via dial-up to the internet using Windows XP. When the process gets as far as dialling the ISP the phone number appears and a message "Dialling", almost immediately followed by the message "Hanging up".
The phone line is ok and I suspect that I have not got the connections on the computer rear panel correct, although I have tried various permutations. Any suggestions
