Providing it has a dial up modem, you may need to look at getting an adapter or a different cable for it.
Most dial up modems have a RJ-35? connector and end up with a standard BT connector. Many computer retailers will offer these cables for a minimal price.


Dial up modems should not be confused with ethernet adapters which are not to be used with regular phonelines.

Then if I get a cable that plugs into the computer & the other end into a NZ ph socket I may be ok? I dont know if it has an internal modem?Its actually my sons but he said it pluged into a box on the wall in Japan.I tried to get info on the net about it.Its a Fujitsu FMV Deskpower about 2 years old & the net said it is not supported outside Japan

By support, they are probably referring to warranty support.

I would double check to ensure the socket is not the ethernet socket. You can always check to see if the computer has a modem installed by checking your device manager and checking the modems section.
