I think the one you removed was the modem. That should only matter if your using dial up. The tv tuner, you don't really need that unless your planning on watching tv on your computer. I suggest putting back in the modem card and taking out the tuner. In place of the tuner, put the linksys pci adapter there. Also make sure you install the software for that adapter.

Trying to connect to internet cant find wireless & cant find a ethernet place either


The laptop in question does not have a place to plug in the ethernet cable. The laptop is not fitted with wi-fi or bluetooth adapters either. The best and cheapest way to connect this laptop to the internet is using a PCMCIA Card Adapter (type two or three as both are supported.) such as the product supplied by linksys. If yours is similar to the one in the photo then it should include a cable with the required network connection on the end. The "linksys" card you mentioned is no doubt the correct one, but minus the vital cable!

Install NX1101


I hope you know what you have bought and what you have (computer) are compatible. since you did not mention what computer you are trying to install this into, I will provide generic instructions.

1. remove all cables from rear of computer. remove cover from computer. Side panel or top cover, sometimes all covers have to be removed on some cases.
2. using a #1 philips screw driver or #5 torx driver remove the small screw from one of the case slots covers near an empty PCI connector on the motherboard. You find those near the place you plug in your video cable. Don't loose the screw.
3. align the new PCI card with the PCI slot and gently push straight down until the card is seated, you have to also align the metal alignment frame with the empty slot you removed from step 2. (if you removed the wrong blank, no problem, just remove the next one over and put that one where you removed the earlier one.) Now put in the screw that you saved from step 2. tighten.
4. Replace cover. Reconnect cables. Power back up.

Where can i buy a onchip usb2?


FIC FR33E motherboard?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/FIC-FR33E-L-MOTHERBOARD-CPU-LOT-10-/170633274365

Reference: Photo


To the far left side of the motherboard, is actually the Bottom of the motherboard, when installed in your computer case.

The two White long expansion slots you see, are PCI expansion slots.
If one is available, (Open), you can use a PCI USB adapter card.
This is but one example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4143850&CatId=511

Seem cheap? Nope. Good quality also. (You can also check the reviews)

Need guidance in installing?
1) Follow Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

[Note* Always unplug the power to a computer AT the surge protector. NOT at the back of the computer. (Power Supply)
You can cause a power surge ]

2) TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

3) Finding an open PCI slot look at the back of the computer. In the metal frame you will see slots going horizontally.
These are Expansion Slots.

You may have an add-on adapter card already installed, in one of the PCI slots.
The expansion slot cover for it is removed.

You should see expansion slot covers however, in the remaining expansion slots on the back of the computer metal framework.
Remove the one that corresponds with the PCI slot you wish to use.

Be aware that the PCI slot will not be directly in line, with the expansion slot.
When installing an add-on adapter card, you will see when the card is inserted in the PCI slot, the metal bracket on the add-on card, lines up with an adjacent expansion slot.

This will make more sense to you once you go to install the card.

[PCI USB adapter card is an add-on adapter card ]

Line the card up in the PCI slot. Note that there is a Locating Lug in the PCI slot, and a matching Locating Notch, on the PCI USB adapter card.

Also, at the same time line up the metal bracket of the PCI USB adapter card, with the metal framework of the computer case at the back.

Gently push the PCI USB adapter card down into the PCI slot.
Fasten the card's metal bracket to the computer's metal framework.

Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number, if you need guidance in opening the computer case. Post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Emachine t3626 internet port can it be replaced


Absolutely!

The Ethernet port on your eMachines is part of the motherboard.
It is attached directly to the motherboard.

The eMachines T3626 Desktop PC, is supposed to use an
ECS MCP61-P (AM2) motherboard. (Cannot verify)
(Elitegroup Computer Systems. (AM2) refers to the processor socket )

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MotherBoard-eMachines-T3626-T5062-T5234-W3622-/320528791641

(Also scroll down for a larger photo of the motherboard )

The Ethernet port is in the group signified by the letter A, on the left.
The group signified by the letter A, is in the I/O area.

Input/Output area. This is where Input, and Output devices are attached, TO the motherboard. (Using the motherboard's chipset)

Now look down the motherboard, to the two long white slots.
These are PCI slots. Signified by the letter I ( i )
If one of these slots is not being used, plug in an Ethernet Card, that is PCI.

If both of these PCI slots are being used, use the small white slot above them, signified by the letter H.

This is a PCI-Express x1 slot. If it is available, use it.
Use an Ethernet Card designed to fit, in a PCI-Express x1 slot.

Example;

PCI Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=771339&CatId=1175

PCI-Express x1 Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106033

[ Note*
The PCI-Express x16 slot that you have, (Orange in color, above the white PCI-Express x1 slot), is for a graphics card.

It is ONLY for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x1 slot is NOT used for a graphics card ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
(If you would like the proper procedure for installing a Ethernet Adapter Card, in your eMachines T3626, also state in a Comment)

I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...


This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/index.htm

1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

(Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
(The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

Technical Overview > System Board Components,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/techov.htm#wp1053398

Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675156&CatId=200

The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/about.htm#wp1053567

[Number 3 - Network Connector],

and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

My wireless linksys adapter came loose, so I opened the cpu and put the adpater back in its slot but cannot get back on the internet --


You can try to use a different PCI slot, then reinstall the drivers for it. It's also possible that the motherboard or the card got damaged when it came loose.

I have a 3600 DT and want to install a Linksys Wireless PCI Adapter WMP54G. Is there a voltage I need to be sure to buy and where do I find instructions on how to install this?


The PCI adapters are designed to work with the standard PCMCIA slots in laptops. You don't need to worry about voltages. The Linksys wireless adapter will have a driver CD supplied with the wireless card and the installation insructions are straight forward.

Computer does not detect new 802.11n pci wireless adapter..also used cd to put drivers on...but main problem is it seems that the computer doesnt even power on the LED light to the adapter.....HELP PLZ!!


try moving the PCI card to another PCI slot in the computer. Sometimes individual PCI slots stop working properly. If you put the card into multiple PCI slots and it never recognizes it or lights up, your card may be defective.
