My digital cordless handset has a earpiece and mic jack, to which I would like to connect to a PC's Modem.

Can I connect the handset to the modem to send and recieve data - if i dial the number manually first to get a handshake tone?

If I purchase the appropriate mini jack from the phone, do I just attach to the two "line in" connectors on the modem card? Ot do I need a line transformer etc?

I am sorry it's a wierd request, However I have a need for using the ccordless phone to connect a PC to the internet.

Many Thanks,

Only speakerphone modems have line out/mic in capability, and are used for voice calls.
Modems in data mode use the RJ11 phone jack and are designed to interface directly to phone line.
So - the answer to your question is no, I don't think you can do what you want.
