I have wireless for my laptop at home---and would like to add wireless card to my desk top. My desktop is a Dell Dimension 4500. Can I add a wireless card to that model? Is there a universal wireless card or do I need to use a particular one?

Of course, just add a PCI LAN card of a small profile. One like

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
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.
