You will simply need a wireless PCI card.
Find out info from your city - as far as the speed of the signal... A/B G or N.
Any card will do. Your PC more than likely has an empty PCI slot for the wireless card.
It will look like this....

XP is plug and play O/S. It will recognize the device when you re-start after installing it.... and automatically configure the drivers.

These cards can be had new & used on eBay or sometimes on clearance at tigerdirect and newegg.

You would want to get the same speed card as network. The speeds were developed in this order...
A/B
G
N

A N card will give you the best speed and reliability.

Hi!

PCI card is one solution, another one is Wireless USB.
Its easy to use, you dont need to open your pc to install, you just connect to a usb-port and install the drivers. And its cheap.
Manufactures of wirless usb is Belkin, D-link, Linkys, Netgear and many others...
It takes 3 minits to install and be online:)

Good luck
Nic

I drop my wireless internet connection in my house when I connect the computer KW-SA240 PCTOTV, I prbe in each of the 4 channels has and the same problem, I hope I can help


you might have to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online
hope this helps

What do I need to set up my samsung tv to internet via linkstick? I have AT&T wireless internet.


The TV is not really like a computer- for which you can ask your USB ports to do anything you want. Unless the Samsung TV instructed you that the linkstick can be used for internet access I would guess that the USB port is mainly for photo and video transfers. I would suggest a wired connection. I know its not what you wanted to hear......

Cannot access my internet explorer browser or AOL using DSL


Looks like you may have a few different problems. Right now you cannot get your wireless laptop to see your router, correct? If this is a newer laptop for you, then the problem may be too simple. On the new hp laptops above the keyboard are light indicators for sound, volume and wireless connections. They are also buttons. The wireless one is on the right of the volume control. You turn your wireless on and off by pressing on the light. It should turn from a yellow/orange to a deep blue. Blue is on, yellow/orange is off.

Leave feedback if this was the problem. Otherwise leave more information just about the wireless setup.

HP laptop shows full internet signal, wont let me connect


First, the "Network Cable Is Unplugged" - don't worry about that. That is just informing you that your WIRED connection is unplugged, which is fine because you are using wireless.

Now the actual issue of no internet...first try by unplugging your internet modem for 20 seconds, and plugging it back in. Next do the same with your wireless router. At this point your computer will disconnect form the wireless network and you may need to reconnect it. After the reconnect see if you still have the same issue, but chances are it should be fixed :-)

If that does not work let me know and we can further troubleshoot the issue!
