How to turn on wireless switch on a desktop


I've never seen a 'switch' on a desktop to turn-on wireless, like there are on Laptops/Notebooks.

Usually it is either a device that is install in a slot in the PC, or it is a USB plug-in adapter. There ARE some motherboards with built-in Wireless ability, those can be turned-On/Off in the BIOS.

You would have to have a Wireless Router/Wireless Access Point in place already, it would need to be setup and security enabled.

Then it would be a matter of installing the driver for the device....WHEN you do that depends on the type of adapter you have:

add-on slot adapter -- Install adapter, then driver software
USB -- install driver software, DO NOT plug-in adapter until directed to do so, or the driver installation finishes.

Cant get wireless to work on acer aspire ax3400desktop


Is it set up to be wireless? Is there a wireless card installed inside the desktop or are you using a wireless device that you use in one of the usb ports? Do you have a wireless router? Now that we've covered the basic requirements let's see if we can find a solution. Most desktops don't come with the ability to connect wirelessly out of the box. Normally you have to installed a wirelesss device either by using a pci wireless adapter that you istall inside the computer or a usb type adapter that you plug into a usb port. No matter which type you use you should have been given a software disk that contains the driver and the utility that controls the wireless device. You can connect either using the wireless utility software that should be on your desktop or under your programs list. Or you can connect using windows (windows comes with the ability to connect wireless once an adapter is installed) zero config. Normally your wireless utility software will have an option to either let it control your wireless connection or to let windows control the connection. I would try both options if I were you. Make sure you can see your wireless router in the list of available wireless networks. Find your network and click Connect. If it requires a password it will prompt you for it. Now if you notice your connection just continously polling trying to connect that means you put the password in wrong. You will never connect if you don't put the password in exactly right.

Lexmark 4800 wireless printer...when printing from a laptop the print is smudged


You aren't giving a lot of details here, but let's try a couple of things to see if we can clear this up. I am working from the assumption that you are talking about wireless printing, and am going to recommend that you try a test page with the laptop hooked to the printer by the USB cable. Are the results the same? If so, is the print clear when you print a test page from the printer's own maintenance menu? If so the problem is either the paper (moisture content) or the way in which the paper is being presented to the print head (possibly rubbing it a bit - again not enough info one the problem). If the smudging only occurs when printing from the laptop, be certain that you have the correct drivers installed.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

Cannot get printer hp psc2355 to work with br6215srg router can you please advise


This router has a built in print server. What type of cable setup are you using; USB, LAN, Firewire ?? All of these methods should work.

For me, I have usb printer and wireless router connected to my desktop in the office, and I use a wireless LAN laptop around the house and I can print from my wireless laptop.

Tell me what setup you want to use so we can narrow this down.
I'm assuming this is a NEW setup your trying to get started.
