May be a stupid question...

My grandpa sent us an old computer for my almost 4 year old daughter to use. She knows how to use the internet and plays on websites like NickJr, Disney, PBS Kids, etc.

Anyway, this computer does not have an ethernet hookup in the back, just the phone jacks. The problem is, we have a cable modem at our house (and we have a router, etc to hook up to a second computer) we don't use dial-up...we don't even have a landline phone since we just use our cell phones instead, so dial-up is not an option.

Is there any sort of adaptor to make cable internet work through the phone jack in the back? I'm thinking "no", but thought I'd ask anyway.
