It seems that you have Dell Desktop computer, unless you requested a wireless card to be put into the computer, it would not come with one. Just like stang_1 mentioned, you should check your network adapters to see if your wireless card is listed. Also since it is a desktop, you can check the back of it to see if you have an Antenna sticking out of it. That would indicate that you have a wireless card on the PCI slot. And if that is the case and you do not see it listed in the network connections, check the Device Manager and make sure that the drivers are installed properly.

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.

Dose the dell dimension modem have a wireless router card in it or do i have to installe a device to it to connect with the router


If you go into your control panel, under the heading performance and maintenance, there is a section called "Device Manager" open this and every component in your computer is listed. Look particularly at the "Modems" section. If your infrared card is not listed than it is not there. Thank You, Dana

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

What settings do I use/change to connect wirelessly to my wireless modem,at the the moment I am using Ethernet cable as modem has 4 ethernet inputs.Just simply want set up Dell desktop 3100 Dimension...


To set up a wireless network one computer still has to be wired, ie. connected to the router with ethernet. This will allow the other computers in the network to connect wirelessly if they have wireless cards installed. Hope this helps.

Dell dimension 3100 and we received a wireless router from aol and we tried to connect via ethernet cable onto this pc and had no luck any ideas


If you have a modem connected to a wireless router that is connected to the computer, turn all the devices off and turn them back on in this order.
1. modem
2. wireless router
3. computer

let the device start up all the way before you start the next device. (I.E. let all the lights on the modem come on before starting the wireless router and let all the lights come on on the wireless router before turning on the computer).

Hope that helps.

SETTING UP WIRELESS NETWORK AT HOME


Yes your computer based on your model number should be able to support a wireless router.

Now... you did not specify if this is or is not a second computer that is trying to access the router which is hooked up to another computer and modem. If you are trying to access it you will need a wireless nic adapter installed on the Dell. To access the router. Please comment on what the case may be in your situation.
