You can install and Desktop wireless card. Some good brands are Belkin, Linksys. I personally use a Belkin G desktop wireless card and its pretty good. You can get it for around 25$.

Hope that helps,
Sai.

I networked my desk top vista with my dell, my dell can reconize the connection but can't pick up the internet


Did you put in youe network password, if you are running wireless you have to input the same password as the other machines and wireless devices. If your running wired go into your network and click on properties you may just have to physically add it to the network, use the connection wizard if you arent sure it's in the network properties menu, just click on "add a new connection" and follow the prompts, i can only assume so much without more info. You may have a router issue, but try this first

I have a wireless card in my Dell Dimension


The first thing I would try would be to reset the card, by removing the cover (if you are comfortable), removing the card from the slot and reinserting in the slot or moving the card to another slot (if there is an identical slot). If that doesn't work, replace the wireless card either with another wireless card or a USB wireless network adapter (external adapter that connects to a USB port). Good luck.

DESK TOP TO WIRELESS CONNECTION


First make sure you have the correct drivers installed, go to the Belkin website to get the latest drivers for your device.

Next make sure that your router is set to broadcast, and that is in Wireless G mode. You can find that information at the router manufacturers website.
