All you need is a wireless network adapter. I've taken the liberty and found one for you. It is not the most expensive and it is not the cheapest. The reason I did it was to ensure 1)you got it from a reputable dealer 2) you got one that met all of the specs. For instance it must be 802.11bg compliant and it must have 128encryption WEP key for security. The website is www.tigerdirect.com and the wireless card is a Netgear WG311 PCI Wireless Network Adapter. Just type that model # at the search engine of the website and it will come up. And no I don't get a percentage of there sales :)...but I have bought a lot from them and it is always decently priced and good quality.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate 4 stars on this solution before checking out.

I have F5D7234-4V1 with insight internet connection and i have win-xp laptop , ERROR MESSAGE - (windows cannot configured wireless ) tell me what to do - But unable to start WZC on my computer


If you want to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the wireless network, you will need to have Windows XP with service pack 2 as a minimum.

With Windows XP and SP2, you will need a Microsoft update for WPA2 that can be obtained from:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357/en-us

After installation you will need to use the Windows Zero Config wireless configuration in the control panel to configure the adapter. WPA2 should now be available and work correctly.

Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Windows Vista offer support for WPA2 without additional updates.

Most likely what he did was manually set the IP address on your laptop so it would connect to their network.

With most home networks they are set to obtain IP addresses automatically. The links below will help you configure it back to obtain IP addresses automatically.

WPA is not very stable and I have seen many problems with this. Simply change router setting to be configured with WEP and use a good strong password in hex 0-9 and a-f . WPA is horrible any way, and who the heck is gonna sit out side your home to hack it? It is not a WIN 7 problem but more like aging encryption.

Wireless computer limited or no connectivity, ip address assigned is 169.254.96.158


You did not specify an Operating System but I'm going to assume you are using Windows XP.

Click Start > Settings > Network Connections - Right click your Local Area Connection and select "properties".Select TCP/IP and click the properties button. Make sure that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" radio buttons are selected. Close both windows by clicking OK, then power cycle the router by unplugging it for 30 seconds. Windows should automatically assign a new IP address to your router.

I need system setup disks for emachines T2682 desktop


unfortunately I have had more than one customer who has had to call up to 4 times to get someone who can help. If that is the first person you spoke with, call back and ask someone again, according to the specs this PC came with WinXP Home, which is not considered ancient yet, and I know They do have restore sets for this model.
If you have access to another PC try to order them online yourself through their website

Emachine T2682 boots then dies


Nope, if the fan on any of the equipment stops, then its a power problem. Hightly suspect the motherboard is at fault loading down the power supply and even possibly burning out the power supply. I've seen it happen to many times.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10005578
You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
