    I have the WLAN network.

    All comps connect to the internet via Wireless Router.

    SO the router is dead.

    i am sitting with my laptop next to the Wall from where a Telephone wire comes out which goes inside the Router.

    How to use that wire to connect to the internet?

    are you saying the modem is dead or the router?

    If it is DSL, the wire coming from the filter (from the telephone socket) that used to be in the wireless ADSL Router (with in built modem) will now have to be plugged into a seperate USB/LAN MODEM.
    Your ISP should have supplied you with a MODEM. If you bought the wireless router modem by yourself then you may have the seperate modem packed away somewhere.
    Unfortunately if the wireless router came free with your ISP, then you cannot access the internet until you get another wireless router with an inbuilt MODEM

    What!!
    i used to think the standard Modem is in-built in most laptops now.

    You mean without the Wireless Router my entire Connection is wasted? i cannot use it without a Router?

    Should be: Laptop --->wireless Router---->modem---->Internet
    (In some cases Router = modem)

    Then

    Laptop--->modem--->internet

    What he said above.

    Also the 'MODEM' which comes with the ISP is usually fixed settings to connect to their network.

    Wireless Router (in-built Modem) has to be set manually using the settings provided by the ISP.

    Only Wireless Routers for CABLE MODEMS are 'just' Wireless routers with no in-built MODEM as the Cable company provides the CABLE MODEM which cannot be 'store bought'

    And to answer your question; yes you cannot connect to your internet without a modem or an ADSL wireless router. Laptops may still have built-in DIAL-UP modems but not broadband.
