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.

How to set up wireless network on windows XP home edition?


OK-- are you talking about simply connecting one computer to a home network, or setting up wireless network in general? If there is a wireless adapter in the PC and you already have a wireless network, the adapter will list all the networks in your proximity, and you choose yours. I can go into greater detail with that when I see your response.
Thanks

The sound on y t2682 emachine does not work, could youplease help me?


Step 1. Check to see if the sound volume is turned up. You can usually the icon in the lower right system tray of your screen. Also, check to see that your speakers are on and plugged into the computer.

Step 2. Obtain most recent sound driver for your machine and reload it. The newest driver can be downloaded at the computer manufacturerer Web site or perhaps came on a CD with the machine itself.

To reload your sound device, go to Control Panel and find the Device Manager. I don't know your OS setup so I can't give you exact instructions. Once you are in the Device Manager, click on the the Sound, Video and Game Controllers section. Click on the whatever sound device you have. Then click on the Driver tab till you see the option "Update Driver". Follow the instructions from there. The computer will probably ask you where the driver location so it can use it. Hope this helps.

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:

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.
