    Not sure what else you need.
    Motherboard Manufacturer and Model ? Do you use an on-board network card or a separate one ?

    Motherboard: Quanta, 2AF5
    For the model thing, do you mean my computer model? If yes, then it's 120-1333w.

    Not sure what you mean by an on-board network card or a separate one.

    It depends on, if you use a (modem-) router which has settings for it or if you have dial-up / local on your computer stored connection settings (User / Password) or if you use the wireless-card, which could use the build-in assistant in Windows or a separate Software from HP (didn't check if there is a Software from HP).

    The Router should have something similar to this here:

    For Dial-Up / on your computer stored log-in details have a look here to give you an idea:

    If you use Wireless, then there is an option in the software or within Windows for it, which get's usually only ticked to activate auto-connect.
