Go Over Chapter 1 and 2 Track 1-09 At the moment, some people who use the Internet are linked to it using a dial-up connection. Here’s what you need to join them: a computer, a modem, and account, and a telephone line. What is a modem? In a word, a modem works as a translator between the computer and the telephone lines. The language used by the computer, cannot be transmitted through the telephone lines. Therefore, the modem’s job is translating the computer language, into signals that can be sent through the telephone lines. There are two basic types of modems: Internal, which are placed in a slot, inside your computer’s case, and external, which are small boxes that live outside your computer, and connect to your computer through a cable. Modems are rated by their speed, using a measurement called “bits per second” or “b..p..s” Your Internet experience is much more satisfying if you use a faster modem Questions- chapter one 1.
