You can use that to access the Dial Up Device. But if there is no internal Dial Up Modem you need to connect some form of external Dial Up Modem through any External Ports that you have fitted to your NB.

Previously I have used a USB to COM Port Device to connect a COMM Port Modem to a Netbook or when they where freely available I have used USB Dial Up Modems with the same devices.

Some form of WiFi Device that connects tot he Next G Cell Network. Most Telco's here are now using USB Plug In Devices as apposed to PCMCIA Plug In Cards.

You would need one of those and a Account with a Telco.
