|To be able to use dial-up, you will need to install a 56k PCI modem card. There are also external USB or serial port modems. External serial port types are best, but also most expensive.|
I don't know what AOL is charging for dial-up these days, but don't pay more than $10 per month. In fact, do NOT use AOL at all...there are plenty of other providers out there that are MUCH better. Remember, you do NOT need any special software to connect to the internet via a dial-up connection...all you need is a phone number, logon ID & password.
And do NOT pay extra for "web acceleration".
