Trying to get wifi for Dell Dimension 2400

Hi--we recently moved our Dell Dimension 2400 to a place in the house that does not have easy access to a cat 5 outlet. Most of the house now gets internet through our wireless system. What is the easiest/least expensive way to upgrade the 2400 so it can receive wifi? Thanks

Less expensive for recieving is simply the "usb stick" I would recommand a "ralink" chipset, (can be found in USROBOTICS and some less expensive brand like TOPLINK

Dell dimension 2400 network adapter driver


The Dell Dimension 2400 drivers are available here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/product/dimension-2400 . Use another computer to visit the site and make sure that Microsoft XP shows in the OS search drop down. Expand the section labeled Network. The wired network adapter is a Broadcom 4401. The direct link to the latest driver (V. 3.63 released 8/5/2003) page is http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/dimension-2400?driverId=R64645&osCode=WW1&fileId=2731129724&languageCode=en&categoryId=NI .

A more recent driver for XP is available from Broadcom at: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/4401.php . Select the driver for the 32-bit version for XP.

I hope this helps.

Dell dimesion wont turn on at all


So it doesn't power up at all? I'm only asking because you said it's not the connection.
If it doesn't power up, open the box and reseat everything, something may have come loose during the move.

My computer doesn't recognize my wireless card and has no wifi utility


Did you install the software first? The Belkin card should have had a CD with drivers. I believe the directions say to install the software first, then install the card.
Also, the min. specs are listed on the Belkin box. Check to be sure your computer meets them.

Bad_Pool_Caller error when trying to reboot a Dell Dimension 2400


If this has only happened recently you could try doing a system restore, this is a generic error, sometimes cause by a bad stick of memory, however mostly caused by corrupt or incorrect system driver files.

Unable to connect wifi to dell dimension 2400.


What wireless adapter are you using? Is there lights on the devices? What error message are you getting? On the PC does the device display other access point? Just for giggles I would unplug the wireless device from the pc and plug it back in. If you have lights on the device and able to see access point from the pc it may not be the pc.It could be the access point having problems.

Cant get on the internet


The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

What to i need to upgrade my dell 2400 to be wireless and wifi


WiFi -- As for the WiFi card that is literally plug and play, particularly if you have the XP service pack w/ the wireless networking utility.

What you want to do is purchace a PCI wifi card. I usually get my parts from tigerdirect.com or newegg.com. Once you get it in, you will need to remove the screws holding on the side of the computer(usually the left pannel) and you will then see 3 small empty slots on the motherboard. you will slide in the wifi card untill the two hooks on the side of the slot click into place. (Make sure you are as grounded as possible before taking out the wifi card from the static free bag.) When you buy the wifi card, it will probally come with a cd with drivers on it. install those before installing the actual card.
