If that is the only issue that you are having with the PC, you can purchase either a USB ethernet device such as the one HERE, or you can purchase an internal card that slides into one of the PCI slots inside your computer such as the one HERE.

Ethernet port or dial up modem?

If it's the built in ethernet port, all you need to do is purchase a PCI ethernet card, disable the one that's built in in the device manager and you're good to go.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.

I have a dell 2400 desktop computer. I recently got FIOS and they hooked my wife's computer to their router with an ethernet cable. Can I also hook my dell up the same way?


Depends on the hardware. Is it a router or modem? Does is have extra ports in the back,

Router with extra ports, just connect new device with wire or even wireless if it has wireless.

Modem, most likey you have to buy a router.

Cant get on the internet


The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

2. if the power light turns on without the screen showing anything then you will need to replace the screen, but first connect it to an ordinary PC monitory and see if it works from there before changing anything.

Dell dimension 2400, wireless internet


Hi Whitney,

I was able to locate manual and a troubleshooting guide.
  1. Manual
  2. Troubleshooting Guide
Summary: Your modem only supports 802.11b standard, which limits the throughput to max. 11Mbps (compare to 802.11g = 54Mbps, 802.11n = 108 Mbps). In other words: your connection is only about 10% of the speed compared to a wired connection via Ethernet cable (100 Mbps). So - if you can - you should try to use a wired instead of a wireless connection, but you have to decide what makes is more important to you: having no cable and you can be away from the modem or the connection speed.

This also means - and that is in regards to APremkumar's solution - that you can skip all 802.11n adapters (this would just be a waste of money). Since you will not find an adapter that only connects to a class b network, look for something like "802.11b/g".
An example page is here. You can choose between an internal (PCI card) or external (USB adapter) solution. Both are ok and the decision depends on the availablity of a free USB port on your Dell and your comfort of opening the computer case or not. (You can always come back here and ask for help;-)

If you have any more questions, please let me know - I'm happy to help!

Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop - Can't connect to internet


The NIC (network interface card) is integrated into the motherboard of the 2400 computer. Most likely that circuit is bad. To fix it you’ll have to replace the motherboard or purchase a NIC card and install it into one of the PCI slots on the motherboard.

Faulty modem


Yes. If it is built into the motherboard you will want to disable the intergrated modem when the when one is installed.

Lightning


Hi,

In a nutshell, yes and not only to a Dell but to most computer brands/models. In some instances, it's only the modem, router, LAN card that gets fried while some gets everything toasted.

Incidentally, even a near lightning strike is enough to cause big problems.

Kind regards.
