    Yep, no networkd adapters for the T 3882 either. We had a wind storm recently and "killed" our computers. The older Sony Vaio recovered without incident, but the emachine (newer) has issues. We downloaded everything(we thought) onto a portable hard drive and re-installed Window XP Pro, but the network adapters didn't come back and we tried to re-install our ISP software but we still cannot get online as it's not seeing the modem, so we can't download the new drivers to it either. What to do? Lost alot of pics in the process, have no clue where they went!

You need to reinstall the network adapter drivers. Do you have the software for the drivers? If not go to the computer management tool. On the start button click on run and type: compmgmt.msc. Click on device manager, on the right find network adapters. Double click and click on driver tab find what you need to do and reinstall your driver. I hope this works for you.

How can I find a driver for internet explorer on windows xp?


Well internet explorer doesn't have a driver. Drivers are for hardware such as video cards, keyboards and mice, etc. If you are having problems with IE you can try re-installing it or upgrading here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/download-ie

If you are having trouble connecting to the internet through IE then you may need to update the driver for your network adapter. That is about the best answer I can come up with since there really aren't any details to your problem. Try replying back with your issue and we can take a look at it.

Hi,

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.

First check your network adapter settings )make sure that it is set to 'obtain ip address automatically'). In network and sharing center, make sure that you are not using a public network. Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!


There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

Why can't my dell inspiron 530s desktop install


With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers. Hope this helps

Can i use Bluetooth USB Adapter to connect PC to wireless router?I purchased a new PC that's connected to a wireless router for internet. I want to connect my old PC to the same wireless router. I don't...


Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.
