I want to connect my landline phone to my laptop so that I can get the caller ID on my laptop. The problem is that my laptop (HP Envy 14) does not have a telephone plug.

How should I go about doing this?

(FWIW I have an ADSL internet connection through my phone)

No way. You need to have a phone modem installed on the computer. – dnbrv Mar 17 '12 at 18:27

You can Add a USB modem or a Card Slot modem. Card slots have changed over time.

  • Cardbus
  • Express Card
