If you have an available PCI slot (white female connector/slot on your MotherBoard) you can install an ethernet adapter. You can purchase on at your local electronics/computer store or online (ebay, electronics supplier like newegg.com).

Does your cable modem have wireless internet? If so, you can buy a Netgear wireless usb port adapter for about $20 and use that to connect wirelessly to the internet. Your pc has usb port connections - right? (Usb port looks like a rectangle)

If you don't want to use a wireless connection you can purchase a cable modem with a usb connection for about $65. You run the ethernet cable to the modem and then a usb cable from the modem to your pc.

If you have a serial cable connection on your pc (looks like a round circle with tiny metal pins in it) you can buy a gender changer and convert that to usb (in case you dont have a usb connection or need another one). You can buy one for about $11.

You can buy an I/O Gear bluetooth usb adapter for $13 and pick up the internet via bluetooth by putting it in your usb port but I'm unsure how well it would work with Win 98.

If you have another pc that has an ethernet connection you could use good old fashioned bi directional printer cable and network both computers together. You may need to upgrade to win xp for networking capabilities.

This dell should already have a network adapter already on it, there is a port on the back of the machine that looks like a BIG phone jack next to your USB and sound plugs.

If you are unable to get it to work even after it has been plugged into that jack then I would check to make sure that windows has the drivers installed to actually run the device. Go back into device manager and make sure that the yellow question mark where other devices is does not show a networking adapter, if it does it means the driver is not installed.

Also you may need to go into your bios (restart the computer and hit f2) and make sure the network adapter is enabled. usually under integrated peripherals

The only drivers you need are for the network adapter.
If they are there, you're ready to get online. But--if you installed everything and didn't reset your modem, then it won't work.
Unplug the modem. Remove its backup battery. Replace the battery and plug it in and restart the computer and then to into my network places and choose the option to connect to the internet.

Dell Dimension 4700C Desktop PC, internet issue.


Try and test the computer and modem connection by hooking it up directly by an ethernet cable..

If the internet connection stays solid when cabled up..

Then try either changing or removing the wep or wpa encryption on your wireless network, and seeing if that allows the computer to stay connected.

Also try disabling the firewall on your computer, and also on your modem.

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!

Adding Dell Dimension 4600 to existing wireless network?...


Go to Staples and purchase a Linksys USB wireless-G (only G needed - the new "N" protocol is overkill) adapter (~$60.00). Insert the Linksys CD and follow the instructions. When prompted, plug the USB adapter into the Dell (frt or back) doesn't matter. If his "roomies" have security enabled on their router, you'll need to know the level, password/passphrase, and the network name that they assigned.
Good luck.
