    you cannot connect to the internet without a modem, unless you can connect to a network that has an internet connection, either wired or wireless

    You'll need either a network name to connect to, for a wireless connection. And a password for it, if it's secured.
    Depending on the network, you may also need the IP settings and other info.

    Most likely, you may need to speak with whoever manages that particular network.

    for most residential people, you will have a modem, cable modem, dsl modem, dialup modem, etc

    if you don't have any of these, then you cannot expect to connect to the internet

    what are you trying to accomplish?

    Maybe if the OP might want to try a dial-up network. He can check if his phone service providers has this product. Then he can go to the net (snail pace though) without having a modem. Granting that his system is also prepared. In my humble opinion.

    That's just the thing... for a system to be prepared for any type of connection, a modem has to be in the mix.
    It's technologically impossible to have a connection without some form of modem. That's the actual purpose of the device.
    I know that you can tether a cell phone for Internet access (never tried it, though), and in that scenario the phone would be acting in the role of modem.

    So even my idea above has a flaw in it... you leech off of some other service, and there is still a modem behind them

    I agree jayd512. I felt a little funny after putting my reply actually. It has to have modem internally for it to even connect to a dial-up.
