no port for phone line on computer

Specs: Windows XP
I have a dial up connection but the computer only has one port which is for a broadband cable. How can I use my phone cable. Is there an adaptor. I know one option is to buy an external modem that takes the phone line and then connect via a usb port but it is expensive for something rarely used is there another solution?

If it's a desktop you can pick up a modem for next to nothing. Just be sure what type of slots you have on the motherboard.

An internal Modem which is the only other option is likely to be just as expensive as an external modem.

An external Modem with an RS232 serial port is the best option if your computer as an RS232 serial port.
