Usually there are knurled screws on the back that secures the side panel or a quick disconnect lever that releases the side panel. After removing the side panel, you will need to remove the screw that holds the cover over one of the PCI slots if there is one. Install the wireless card and press down hard to make sure the card is inserted all the way. You will probably have to insert the accompanying CD if the computer doesnt automatically load the driver.

See the link below for product specifications.The simple way to go is an external usb adapter for wireless, since your motherboard only has one PCI slot and it likely has a 56K modem installed in it. Remember to put the driver disk which comes with your adapter in the CDROM/DVD drive BEFORE you plug in the usb adapter , and follow the installation directions carefully - unrecognized usb devices can be difficult to remove...

How to setup a Wireless Network


1. <b>Connect Your Wireless Router</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Power off your cable modem and your wired PC.<br /><b>b.</b> Unplug the Ethernet cable from your cable/DSL modem and plug it into one of the LAN ports on the back of the wireless router. Leave other end of the cable connected to your PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Connect another Ethernet cable between your modem's Ethernet port and the wireless router's WAN port. (The WAN port should be separate from the other grouped LAN ports.)<br /><b>d.</b> Power on the modem and watch for the status lights to indicate that it's connected to your Internet service. This may take a minute or so.<br /><b>e.</b> Plug in the router. The status lights will blink as it runs through its diagnostics; this may also take a minute or so.<br /><b>f.</b> Start up your wired PC.<br />2. <b>Configure your Wireless Router</b><br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the router's quick-start guide, launch Internet Explorer, and type in the address indicated in the guide.<br /><b>b.</b> Follow the on-screen setup wizard, which will guide you through the process step by step.<br /><b>c.</b> Enable your router's security functions. This is very important if you don't want other people attaching to your wireless signal. The options will be WEP and WPA. Both will ask you to enter a key. Depending on the router's manufacturer, you may have to go into Advanced Settings to accomplish this step.<br /><b>d.</b> Change the default administrator's password, Almost all hackers know them.<br /><b>e.</b> Change the SSID-the name of your wireless network. Again, hackers know many of the default SSIDs and can use them to hack your network.<br />3. <b>Install a Wireless PCI Card in a Desktop PC</b> <br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Remove the cover.<br /><b>d.</b> Find an available PCI slot and remove the slot cover from the back of the PC.<br /><b>e.</b> Carefully insert the antenna through the open slot in the back of the PC, carefully push the card in the slot, and secure it. Replace the cover. <br /><b>f.</b> Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>g.</b> Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router.<br />4. <b>Install a Wireless PC Card in a Notebook PC</b> <br />Many notebooks have built-in wireless cards. However, If yours doesn't, you can install either a USB wireless adapter or a wireless PC card just follow these instructions.<br /><b>a.</b> Refer to the card manufacturer's quick-start guide. If necessary, run the software installation program.<br /><b>b.</b> Power down the PC.<br /><b>c.</b> Plug your USB wireless Adapter or wireless PC Card into an available slot on the side of your notebook.<br /><b>d</b>. Start up the PC. It should recognize and install the new PCI card.<br /><b>e</b>. Go to the Control Panel, select Network connections, select Wireless Networking connection. Click on Properties button. Click on Wireless Networking tab. Select the wireless networking name (see step 2e). Click on Configure button. Configure your security settings to match the ones on your wireless router. well, thats pretty much it. Hope this is helpful to all you home networkers.<br />

Does the dell studio 540 pc come with a built in wireless card


The wireless card was optional for that particular computer. You can see if you have one by clicking the start button (lower left corner) right click on computer and select "manage". When the window opens click device manager in the left window and find "network adapters" in the larger center window. If you see a wireless card listed in that then you have one and it should be activated already (there's no on/off switch for wireless on a desktop). If you don't, any PCI wireless card can be purchased for 15-30 bucks. To install it, turn off and unplug your computer, take off the side panel of your machine, remove the i/o cover adjacent to the PCI slot you plan to use and insert the card into the pci slot and secure it with the screw that held the cover on. Power on your computer and run the driver installation software that came with the card you purchased.

How do i enable wireless internet on a 2 year old HP desktop


You have to have a wireless card installed on the desktop. Either a PCI wireless card that will be installed inside the computer on one of the pci slots or you can use a usb wireless card that plugs into the usb port.

Unlike laptops, there will be no switch to turn on or off. The wireless on desktops is controlled by the software program that comes with the wireless adapter.

Dell optiplex 780 wirless card (2.4/5 GHz Wireless 1505 PCI Express) I want to install it. Does it need any parts extra to install on it? & what I should connect to its socket?


Hi moh f2007...

The pci wireless card will work in your computer, just plug it in..and turn it on...
If it came with a cd install it first before plugging the card into the alloted slot.
After installation of the CD then you will:
Shut the computer off.
Install the card:
Open up the machine, look towards the back of the machine and you will see metal covers that can be removed and replace with different cards, pick the right slot that the PCI card will go into and remove that blank cover and install the wireless card into that slot.
Turn the computer on and clear any boxes or windows that might open
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Need to know what pci card to buy for a 830 gateway computer to make it wireless


Any Pci wireless card should do, although I'd go for a trusted make like Belkin, or Netgear. You basically want one with the following specification. (as an example)

Is there space to install an internal wireless card in an HP Pavilion Slimline s7310n PC (it is about 4 years old)?


Hi there,

Open your computer. Near the bottom of your motherboard you will find two available PCI slots:

You can insert your Internal Wireless Card in to either of these two slots. This is what an Internal Wireless Card looks like:

These cards are available at Amazon.com or at Ebay.com

Wireless card


Typically it is the side of the PC cover that slides off. If you are facing the PC from the fron it should be on the left hand side. Once you get the side cover off then i9t will expose your Motherboard. Please ensure that you have the PC turned off. You should see some empty slots if you PC has any available these are called PCI slots. They will be a very specific shape for the device that you are attaching to the PC.

Then you will need to remove one of the device slot plates from the rear of the PC and you should be able to get you Wireless card to slide into on of the PCI slots.

Onece the hardware is installed you will need to boot your PC then install the drivers that came with your Wireless card.

Good Luck

How do i set up wireless internet on my hp pavillion a330n desktop? Do i need a wireless card or is it built in? and where do i put the wireless card if i need one?


Hello,

Yes you need a wireless adapter.

Solution one : Get PCI wireless adapter which you will insert in an empty PCI slot inside your computer.

Solution 2. Buy a USB wireless adapter, which you plug in a USB port.
However, if my memory serves me right, that particular HP pavillion is 5 or 6 years old, and it does support USB 2.0, just USB 1.1

My advice to you is to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card to be installed in an empty PCI slot )or in the one occupied by the firewire )if not needed). This card will provide 4 or 5 USB 2.0 adapters. Then buy a USB wireless adapter, which you will be able to use with other computers.

Hope It helps.
