WiFi -- As for the WiFi card that is literally plug and play, particularly if you have the XP service pack w/ the wireless networking utility.

What you want to do is purchace a PCI wifi card. I usually get my parts from tigerdirect.com or newegg.com. Once you get it in, you will need to remove the screws holding on the side of the computer(usually the left pannel) and you will then see 3 small empty slots on the motherboard. you will slide in the wifi card untill the two hooks on the side of the slot click into place. (Make sure you are as grounded as possible before taking out the wifi card from the static free bag.) When you buy the wifi card, it will probally come with a cd with drivers on it. install those before installing the actual card.

    the easier option is just to buy a usb adapter for one of your usb ports in the back of the computer. These are not expensive and are available at most local computer shops.

You will need to but a wireless PCI adapter card and router to set up a home wi-fi network, Your local computer store will have those devices and they are relitavely easy to install and set-up.

I have never seen a desk top that has a "button" for wifi. If it has a wireless wifi adapter or card installed you would go to the lower right of your desktop where you would see a wifi ICON probably next to your volumn control. Clk on that and the wifi available should show there. The icon would look like a progressively smaller to larger group of 5 vertical bars. Ask anyone with a laptop theo help you.

My computer doesn't recognize my wireless card and has no wifi utility


Did you install the software first? The Belkin card should have had a CD with drivers. I believe the directions say to install the software first, then install the card.
Also, the min. specs are listed on the Belkin box. Check to be sure your computer meets them.

Unable to connect wifi to dell dimension 2400.


What wireless adapter are you using? Is there lights on the devices? What error message are you getting? On the PC does the device display other access point? Just for giggles I would unplug the wireless device from the pc and plug it back in. If you have lights on the device and able to see access point from the pc it may not be the pc.It could be the access point having problems.

Do I need to upgrade my video card before using a Dell 24 inch monitor with a Dell Dimension 2400


Technically, no.

However you probably won't be able to use your monitor's maximum resolution unless you do. However, if you don't you'll still be able to see the video. I recommend trying it without upgrading first and see if what you have currently supports your monitor's resolution. If you don't like the available resolutions, then you can upgrade.

When you said "I think its a memory problem" your right, you need more of it. Try adding more RAM. It's really cheap now a days, especially for the 2400. Memory is available everywhere. While this is not an endorsement of their site, Computer Memory Outlet.com has about the cheapest RAM available and they are reputable and reliable and orders usually ship next day. I personally get all my memory from them.

anaanymous

p.s. They have an on site utility that will scan your computer and tell you the exact RAM you need and the maximum RAM you can add
