Lesson 20. Connecting to the Internet > Connecting via a Standard Modem

Connecting via a Standard Modem

Probably the most common type of Internet connection for Pocket PC users is via a standard modem card. You insert the modem card into the CF slot at the top of your Pocket PC, and then connect the card to a nearby phone line. You can then use your Pocket PC to dial into your ISP, just as you'd dial in via your desktop PC.

TIP

Whether you're connecting with a standard or wireless modem, the first time you insert the modem card you may need to run the card's installation program, which installs the proper software drivers required for you to use the new card. However, the drivers for the most common modem cards are already installed in the Pocket PC 2002 operating system, so that these modems are automatically recognized when they're inserted into your device—no installation is required.
