If you have a modem connected to a wireless router that is connected to the computer, turn all the devices off and turn them back on in this order.
1. modem
2. wireless router
3. computer

let the device start up all the way before you start the next device. (I.E. let all the lights on the modem come on before starting the wireless router and let all the lights come on on the wireless router before turning on the computer).

Hope that helps.

Hi there I have a Dell Dimension 3100, and at the moment it is connected to the internet via a cable to my BT home hub. Someone has told me all I need to do is get a wireless card and slot it in and then...


The card mentioned is a PCI wireless ethernet card card.

Open your tower and look at the motherboard, you should find anywhere betwee 3 and 5 pci slots
(Longish connector slots usually coloured white all parallel with each other)

A PCI card will slot into one of these, with its face (with areal on it) pokes out the back. You may
have to remove a small long panel secured by 1 screw from the back of your tower.

Once inserted, your pc will probably find it as you boot up and will ask for a driver disk. Put the disk provided in your optical drive and off you go.

You will then have to set up the connection between the PCI card and your router.

A bit easier would be to buy a Wireless dongle which just slots into a USB port, saves taking your pc apart. The rest of the hoop jumping is more or less the same.

Please note, its probably best to go for one with WPA-PSK security, WEP is a bit old now. Best to check what your router can accommodate.

If you're still not sure just type "PCI wireless ethernet card" and "Wireless USB adaptor" into ebay, you'll get loads of pictures of what you're looking for. You don't have to be a member.

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to...


Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!

What settings do I use/change to connect wirelessly to my wireless modem,at the the moment I am using Ethernet cable as modem has 4 ethernet inputs.Just simply want set up Dell desktop 3100 Dimension...


To set up a wireless network one computer still has to be wired, ie. connected to the router with ethernet. This will allow the other computers in the network to connect wirelessly if they have wireless cards installed. Hope this helps.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

How to add Wirless & Ethernet connections?


The only difference in using a wireless hub is that it will go between your router and your computer. The advantage is you can take your computer anywhere within range and connect using your computers wireless card (if you have one).
You won't need any more equipment or memory and most wireless hubs come with instructions. If they didn't give them to you, just Google the manufacturer and model of the hub and you should be able to find them easily.
After you've set up the wireless hub (which you can still connect to via your ethernet cable). your computer should notify you of wireless networks available. You have a utility to set this up within the control panel.
Let me know if this helps
