    I have a Compaq Presario that lacks a Ethernet cable link. It only has phone line links, but no Ethernet cable link. The network connection I use requires my Adapter to be able to connect with an Ethernet cable, but my desktop for the Presario doesn't have one.

    Question: Is there any kind of cable that has the Ethernet on one side, and a Phone Line cable at the other side that I am able to purchase? Or is there any kind of link cable of some sort that could help my ethernet cable connect to this computer that does not have an Ethernet cable link? Thank you if helped.>.<

    If you have a USB port, you can buy a USB to ethernet adapter for about 10 dollars.

    You can also buy a PCI NIC for about the same price, and I strongly recommend you do that instead of using the inferior USB networking solution.
