SOURCE: dell dimension 2400, wireless internet

Hi Whitney,

I was able to locate manual and a troubleshooting guide.

  1. Manual
  2. Troubleshooting Guide
Summary: Your modem only supports 802.11b standard, which limits the throughput to max. 11Mbps (compare to 802.11g = 54Mbps, 802.11n = 108 Mbps). In other words: your connection is only about 10% of the speed compared to a wired connection via Ethernet cable (100 Mbps). So - if you can - you should try to use a wired instead of a wireless connection, but you have to decide what makes is more important to you: having no cable and you can be away from the modem or the connection speed.

This also means - and that is in regards to APremkumar's solution - that you can skip all 802.11n adapters (this would just be a waste of money). Since you will not find an adapter that only connects to a class b network, look for something like "802.11b/g".
An example page is here. You can choose between an internal (PCI card) or external (USB adapter) solution. Both are ok and the decision depends on the availablity of a free USB port on your Dell and your comfort of opening the computer case or not. (You can always come back here and ask for help;-)

If you have any more questions, please let me know - I'm happy to help!

I have a 40" smart tv with built in wifi but understand u need a dongle to be able to connect. Could u please tell me which dongle I need please?


If WiFi is "built in", you do not need a dongle.

It may be "WiFi ready" in which case you add a dongle.

But you would need to check the manufacturer's website or the owner's manual to find out the recommended models of WiFi dongle you can use.

Can i use connect dongle as wireless adapter


Yes definitely ,I think i need lots more information about router version, IEEE standard.
basically adapter that uses mobile phone networks to provide broadband as a WiFi Dongle while USB WiFi adapter can be used to connect your PC to and existing wirless network provided by a wireless router.
but first you should find out what kind of Internet router you are using and always purchase a Wi-Fi adapter that is compatible with the Wi-Fi standard of your wireless router.

Hi, there is a proper solution for you.

Just follow these instructions gradually...

(You can use the following link; http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/dimension-5150x/drivers)

I set a WEP key for the USB, now it's not allowing me to connect, Is their anyways to reset the WEP key of the dongle ? Please Help me.


If it's a standard WIFI dongle it would have come with an installation disk or on-board self installing drivers and (usually) a WIFI app which I presume you used to set the WEP key. If it's a modern one you will be using a MINIMUM of WPA2 and TKIP or AES encryption. Try running the setup app again with one of these settings. The app SHOULD give you the choice of setting up encryption & passwords using windows instead (windows zero config usually) by right clicking on wifi symbol in bottom R of screen. I find that more reliable. Check the maker's spec for the relevent protocols. Good Luck.

I want to buy a wireless network adapter USB. I do not have internet home, but there is a public connection that is a couple hundred feet away from my house that is public because it is a cafe. Can anyone...


A couple of hundred feet away may be too far for a good signal receiption.
You can increase your signal with an aerial.
You may need to go into the cafe or park yourself nexr door to the cafe.
Use Google to see what is available on the Internet.
Here are a few WEB sites for you to look at.

My Lg 32ld550 and usb dongle won't "see" my wifi network. Can't get it connected.


Che\k in device manager if the dongle is working properly. For hat in run type "devmgmt.msc" and find the dongle and double click on it. If it says some problem try re-installing the drivers..if it says device is working properly then restart the computer and search for the wi-fi. If it still doesnt recognise take the dongle to a hot spot like a cafe and check if it can detect wifi. If it detects else were its and issue with the wifi at home..if it doesnt recognise the wifi in hotspot its an issue with the dongle.

Hope this helped.

I have a dell dimension 3100 desktop, and just purchased a fivespot mobile broadband wireless device. Can I get a wifi connection (without connecting the device directly to my tower?


No, your desktop doesn't have a wifi card. You will have to either buy one and install it or connect the Verizon dongle directly with an USB cable.
