Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
I already have a pc with high speed cable internet service and a laptop with a wireless router. Can I add a new desktop pc (Dell GX280) to the internet service with just a wireless internet card?
Than yes you just get a wifi card (i suggest a usb) for your desk top . If you have security on your router (WEP, WPA2) you will need to know that password.

Theoretically, yes. you'll just need to install the correct driver on the dell and know what you're doing when you install the wifi card.

Tips for a great answer:
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
