If you have access to another computer with internet (friend, relative, neighbor, etc...), get a USB flash drive or thumb drive (2 or 4 GB can be found for around $10 - $15), then follow these steps:

1. locate your express service tag code, usually found on a sticker somewhere on the computer's case, and write it down.
2. go to Dell's support website: http://support.dell.com
3. Click "Drivers and Downloads"
4. Choose "By Service Tag"
5. Enter your Express Service Tag and click GO
6. Scroll down to "Network"
7. Download the "Recommended" driver and save it to the USB flash drive.

Take the USB flash drive back to your computer, open it in Windows Explorer, then double click the downloaded file and follow the installation directions from there.

You could also do the same with a CD-R if you don't have a thumb drive, but it's a bit more involved.

Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use.

Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet.

Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection.

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.

Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem.
There is a clearly marked ethernet port here.

This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.
Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.

This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.
Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.

Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router.
Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual.

This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions.
Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.

Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load.
When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.

Begin setting up your new wireless network.
You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network.

This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list.
Choose whatever name you like.

Select a password for your new network.
While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended.

Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption.
"WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.

Click "Apply" to save your changes.

Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.

Enter the password you chose for your network.
You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

What the heck? This is crazy!


You can get a USB to ethernet adapter which will enable you to connect to the internet and download the drivers:
https://www.google.co.uk/#q=usb+to+ethernet+adaptor&hl
=en&newwindow=1&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=
shop&ei=Va55T57HHtL58QPFgvmdDQ&sa=X&oi=mode_

gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=17f151312dece8c7&biw=1344&bih=694

Otherwise, download the drivers using a different PC, save them to a usb stick, plug that into the machine that needs the drivers and install them from the stick.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

Part 1: Before You Start loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); You need the following: • A broadband connection to the Internet and the appropriate hardware. For example, cable-based Internet access that uses a cable modem that is provided by your ISP. • The Microsoft Broadband Networking Setup CD-ROM. • The Microsoft MN-500 Wireless Base Station. • The Ethernet cable that came with your base station. • The AC power supply. • The blank floppy disk.Check the following: • On computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP, you must be a member of the Administrators group to set up a network. If you cannot run Setup, click Log Off on the Start menu, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then log on with as an administrator. • Turn off any firewall or Internet connection sharing software on your computers. Your base station replaces these functions. The Setup Wizard cannot continue if they are enabled. • Do you have a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Internet connection or a static Internet Protocol (IP) address? The Setup Wizard prompts you to type your user name, password, and service name for a PPPoE connection. For a static IP address, you must have the IP, subnet, and ISP gateway addresses. If you have one of these types of connections, gather this information from your ISP.
Part 2: Install the Software and Connect the Hardware loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. Insert the wireless base station Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive. If the Setup Wizard does not start automatically, click Start, click My Computer, double-click the CD-ROM icon, and then double-click Setup or Setup.exe. 2. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the software. 3. In the second part of the installation, select the option to set up the wireless base station, and then continue through the rest of the Setup Wizard. 4. When the Setup Wizard instructs you to connect your wireless base station, position the wireless base station close to your modem and computer, and near the center of your intended network area. If you want to set up the wireless base station vertically, attach the included stand. 5. On the back of your computer, unplug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer to your broadband modem. Leave the other end of the cable plugged in to the modem. 6. Plug the cable in to the "To Modem" port on the back of the base station. The base station is now connected to your modem. 7. Plug one end of the blue Ethernet cable that came with your base station in to the Ethernet port that is labeled 1 on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. This is the same port from which you just disconnected the modem cable.

Important The modem must use its original Ethernet cable or one of the same type to connect to the base station. 8. Plug one end of the power supply that came with your base station into the power jack on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet. The power indicator light on the front of the base station should turn on. 9. Return to the Setup Wizard, click Next, and then go to Part 3 of this article.
Part 3: Configure the Base Station and Network Settings loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); Continue to follow the instructions on the screen to configure your wireless network settings: 1. Setup prompts you to enable wireless security (WEP). Microsoft recommends that you enable WEP. 2. Setup prompts you to save your network settings to a floppy disk for use in later installations. A blank floppy disk is provided for this purpose. If you do not save to a disk, you receive a list of network settings to print or write down. 3. Click Finish to exit Setup, and then remove the Setup CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and the floppy disk from the floppy disk drive. You can use the same CD-ROM and floppy disk to set up additional computers on your network.
Part 4: Test Your Network loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. View the status of your network in the Broadband Network Utility (BNU). Make sure that you can see your base station and the computer that is connected to it in the BNU status screen: a. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then double-click Microsoft Broadband Network Utility. b. View the information on the Network Status screen. 2. If your broadband Internet connection is being shared through your wireless network, start your Web browser program, and then try to visit a Web site. If your network is working properly, you have access to the Internet from the computer you just set up.
