Windows Vista - Dial up and Lap tops

Hi , Please can someone give me some guidance . We were looking to purchase a laptop for my father . We went to Pc world to look to buy and was told that because he only has dial up connection the windows vista was not compatable and also that dial up was on the way out and soon ISP would be stopping it altogether in favour of broad band only .WE ended up walking away confused .Any guidance would be welcome

Windows Vista - Dial up and Lap tops

If vista has a modem and modem driver then you can dial up see

for details on how to set it up and change it for your isp.

Dial up is going out and a lot of websites and internet services are difficult with the low speed of dialup. Broadband is so cheap now that dial up is probably more expensive.

some of the problems are getting drivers for the modems for Vista but dell do a good range with 56k modems see
