Your VAIO desktop is equipped with an internal modem. You need to connect a phone line to take
advantage of online services and the Internet, to register your computer and software online, and to contact
To connect a phone line, proceed as follows:
1 Plug one end of the phone cable into the phone connector on the back of the computer.
2 Plug the other end into the wall jack.
✍ A country-specific phone plug is supplied
with your VAIO desktop, allowing you to plug
the phone line into the wall jack. We
recommend you to use the supplied plug,
because the usage of any other phone plug can
decrease the connection quality.
Your computer cannot be connected to a coin-
operated telephone, and may not work with
multiple phone lines or a private branch
exchange (PBX). If you connect the modem to a
parallel connected phone line, the modem or the
other connected device may not function
properly. Some of these connections may result
in excess electrical current and could cause a
malfunction in the internal modem.
Only DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency)
signalling (tone dialling) is supported.
