If it's a USB adapter, the cable is just a USB extension cable, so that you can move the adapter around for best signal strength without having to move the whole computer.

Remove the phone line, because he no longer needs it to connect to the internet.

Just let Windows load the drivers it needs for the adapter (use the CD that came with it if the computer asks for it).

Purchase an USB blue adapter from amazon or newegg.com
Depending on the version of windows, you might not have to install anything when you plug it in. Vista and 7 shouldn't have any issues installing it. If windows xp or failure to load on vista/7 you'll need to load the drivers from the CD that comes with the USB device.

See if there is a Win 7 driver for the USB device as the one you have may not be for Win 7. Check with the manufacturer. You may also want to check device manager and make sure all devices are enabled and functioning. I hope this helped. Good luck and have a pleasant day.

Can I get a wireless card for my Medion pc model PCM77


What version of windows are you using, xp, vista, windows 7? Also, how old is your pc? I don't see there being any problem but I'm thinking that you can purchase a USB wireless adapter as long as you have a usb port. You should check out the minimum system requirements of the adapter before you make a purchase to see if it is compatible with your system. Then, you just install the installation cd that comes with the adapter. Do you have a wireless router? This will act as your wireless access point. You will need to enable wireless on the router. Good luck. Andrew

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

Booster will only work along with access points in your case the belkin wireless router - you have to connect the device to the router not to the windows xp pc

if you know how to configure and the device are compatiable to each other and allows bridging or can configure as your access point client then you need not wanna to get it connected via wire or T568b standard ethernet cable otherwise you have to connect with this cable will enchance the wireless activity

Wireless signals can go down its strength by any magnetic activity, oscillations such as microwave, powerful steel/metal frames and check your anteena position keep in different direction and check your pc wifi signal strength.

Interlink between your router and booster with utp cables gives you steady flow of data and full band strength.

Aviod using two company devices change the router to Hawking
Thanks Hothawk

We have windows XP desk top. Can't install the drivers for the DWA-111 but the router works fine.


What specific error message/s does your computer prompt when you trying to install the wireless USB adapter? Since your running Windows XP you can skip on "run the CD first", try uninstalling all the componets for the adapter then restart the computer, when the computer is booted up properly insert the USB adapter(preferably used the USB port on the back of your desktop for maximum power). When the found new hardware wizard pops up, choose install software automatically(make sure that the setup CD for the USB adapter is already loaded on the CD-ROM drive then hit next.
If the installation proceeds click on finish a bubble should appear on the lower right hand side of your dekstop screen(syatem tray) prompting you that one or more wireless network is being detected, click the baloon and check if your network will show up on the list.
