There are six screws on the back of the tower: 2 on top, 2 on left, 2 on right. Remove these, then pull back & up on the metal case and you're in.

Is it possible to make my W3506 Desktop Emachine wireless?


If by wireless you mean you are looking to be able to connect to a wireless router, then yes, it is simple. You can either install a wireless card inside the computer, if you have an empty slot available, or you can get an external wireless card, which plugs into an open USB port, the easiest way to go. Best place I know to find these is at www.newegg.com, or try Amazon.

Where do you plug in the adaptor on the e machine for wifi


Depends on what kind of Wireless Adapter you are using

There's the Wireless Adapter Card

Comes in three styles of connection,

1) PCI Wireless Adapter Card,

2) And PCI-Express x1 Wireless Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1068811&CatId=2688

PCI-Express x4 style may be out there too.
(I've never bothered to look. I use the USB style)


A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI technology, goes in a PCI slot. Generally White in color, but NOT always,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_local_bus

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI Express technology, is used in a PCI-Express x1 slot,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

Top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Moving down, next is a PCI-E x16 slot
Next, PCI-E x1 slot
Next is a PCI-E x16 slot,
and the last one at the bottom is a PCI slot.

Notice they are all Yellow.
Color of connector does NOT matter.

What the expansion slot is, does........

Also there is a USB Wireless Adapter,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3970955&CatId=2704

This type of Wireless Adapter, plugs into any available USB port on the computer.

Front or back of an eMachines desktop computer, in any available USB port.

Any available open USB port, on an eMachines laptop.

(Or any computer manufacturer)

What is the model number of the eMachines Desktop PC?
Examples, T1090, T2460, W4685, D2246, etc.

I should be able to tell you what motherboard is used inside, and may have access to a link, to the Motherboard Manual.

Post back in a Comment.

Can't install wireless network adaptor on emachines 5260. I used to connect to the internet using the wireless adaptor until I re-installed the windows xp operating system due to other problems, and...


Your machine was difficult to track down. As far as I can tell, the 5260 is the Intel motherboard. Below is a link to a page where you can individually download the drivers you require. Best of luck!

Emachines desktop with netgear wireless adpater


You need a driver for the card.
Download one here if wanted after reading on.. I will have the link below inwhich you can click onto for instant access

Emachines are the worst computer to have. They have more problems since they are manufactured so cheaply. My advice is to sell it and purchase a HP, Or a DELL.
When the power supply gets a spike it shorts out the Mother board instantly
Emachines do not beleive installing a fuse so that is why the mother board goes too

Expansion slota


eMachines Support > ET1331 desktop computer > Product Views > Rear View,

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/ET1831/ET1831rv.shtml

The metal covers that have the Plus sign ( + ) holes, are Expansion Slot Covers.

Insert a flat tipped screwdriver blade in the + sign hole.
Insert the screwdriver blade horizontally, in the + sign hole, on the right side. ( ---- , not vertical I )

Gently bring the back of the screwdriver down.
This will make the metal slot cover, bend the small metal tab that is holding it.

Go to the + sign hole on the Left side. Do the same on the Left side as the above.

Bring the back of the screwdriver up.

Keep working the metal expansion slot cover back, and forth, until the two small metal tabs that are holding it in, break.

Remove the metal expansion slot cover.

Before you begin, ensure that the expansion slot cover you wish to remove, lines up with the wireless adapter card.

Have any questions concerning this, post in a Comment.

How do you open computer to insert wireless card?


There should be 2 screws on the back. The side panel will slide off and then you can insert it into a PCI slot.

If its a laptop get it done professionally

I have a TP link wireless adaptor for an acer aspire T180 pc. I can't work out where to fit it on the motherboard


Providing the wireless adaptor is a PCI card this fits the white slot on motherboard.
Should it be USB, then plugs in the USB port.
