    Well, the connection your son is using is a lot faster than dial-up. If your pastor will keep the connection going you can ditch dial-up with a wireless card if you want to.

    Although leaving a router open like that is a very bad idea.

    Dumb question... and only because I haven't actually seen the product he proposes to buy, how or what would it connect with on that pc, which is a tower? Does it go into where the phone line connects? His laptop has a slot on the side that his card pops into... but what pieces of hardware would be compatible with my antiquated pc?

    Well if you're replacing the hard drive, you should get a new computer case to go with it . Get one like Xoxide UFO Ultimate Aluminum Cube Computer Case or how about this one! : Xoxide Mad Warrior w/ 450W PSU - Painted Case Remember, you're 18 (again). This is my recommendation as one 18 year old to another. I like the second one better .

    As for where the modem would go on your computer, the one on my daughter's computer plugged into an empty card slot on the motherboard.

    Still working on this issue. Long story short, I am going to try for a quick fix by purchasing a new modem, just so I can have Internet. Then I will buy something that fits into the USB port that will get me wireless. As you can see, I have been struggling to get to a computer!
