How to connect my wii to my dell xps400


Desktop computers are not known for their wireless connectivity, but it is possible to make yours one that is.


Wireless network adapters, which enable your desktop to pick up wireless Internet signals, come in a variety of forms, and are all fairly easy to install.


Once you have one installed, getting online wirelessly is almost effortless.

Choose the network adapter that is right for you.


The easiest network adapters to connect do so via USB, but if you have limited USB ports on your desktop, you may want to try another option.


There are also network adapters that plug into your Ethernet port, but if you want to use that port for a landline connection you have, and wireless is your backup, then this also may not work for you.


If that is the case, you can buy an add-in card, which fortunately for Dell owners is very easy to install.


Dell computers are designed to be opened and have add-in cards installed without the use of screwdrivers; check your manual for details.


Install the network adapter and any included software.


The adapter will usually come with a software CD with a notice to run the CD either before or after you have plugged in or installed your adapter.


Go through the setup steps on the CD, click "Finish" when it is complete, and your wireless network adapter should then be activated and ready to receive wireless signals.


Click the notification that pops up letting you know that wireless networks are available; or, if there is no notification, go "Start > Connect To" and all available networks will be displayed.


Double-click on the logo for the network you want to connect to and enter the security key if it is a secure network.


(If you set the network up, you should have the security key saved somewhere with your network settings.

If you are connecting to a nearby hotspot, you will need to ask the permission of whoever set up the connection and obtain the security key from that person.)


Select "Home," "Work" or "Public Location" when prompted to designate what type of network connection this is.


You will then be asked if you want your computer to remember this computer and start it automatically in the future.


If you plan to use this connection regularly, it is a good choice to check the boxes next to both options so that the connection will always be available and you won't have to enter a security key for it again.


Hope this helps.

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop


Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
1.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Click Network and Internet Connections.
69010-click-network-and-internet-connections.gif 3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Lost install cd


The reason your computer doesn't recognize the adapter is because you don't have the drivers that come with the CD.

So, in order for you to get this working, click HERE

Then, download the driver by saving it to your disk. If you don't have internet access on that computer, you can download those files to a flash drive, or burn them to a CD. Whichever you prefer.

Good Luck :)

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.
