There's no RD-45 jack on the laptop or the DSL modem? I looked up that model, it has an ethernet jack. Left side, right in the middle.

Re: sony vaio dsl hookup

yes it does, but my old viao has a d-link ethernet card sticking out of the side of it and the cable plugs into it. Is that built in to the new laptops.

 

thanks in advance

Thanks RealGeorgeW

 

  I was worried about doing that, even though the best buy guy said the same thing. It just seemed too easy.

I'm posting this with my new viao.

 

                          Thanks again and have a happy new year
