Regardless of the desire to connect to the Internet or to a Remote Access Server (RAS) in your corporate office, you must have a modem that is properly configured to accomplish the mission.
Configuration of the modem requires that you have: an available serial port, interrupt, and I/O address range. (The last three terms are beyond the discussion of this course. If these are not familiar to you, see your instructor or study up with an A+ study guide.) While it is safe to manually setup a modem using the defaults, be aware that some plug and play devices can select non-standard settings, which can create havoc for some software.
