It's not generally possible to connect two computers directly via a network adapter.  You need a hub or router in between the two computers (you would connect a cable from each computer to the hub or router, and that equipment facilitates the connection between the two computers).  Alternatively, you would need a "crossover cable" to connect the two computers directly without a hub or router.

Does installation of a wireless ouse reequire using a port?

It depends

What is required though is for the same capability to be supported by your PC.

If its bluetooth connected, the PC must also be bluetooth capable, if the PC is not you can always get a bluetooth adapter to make you PC bluetooth capable.

If its infrared, then you need to install the adapter that came with it, usually they come with a usb adater.

Why can't my dell inspiron 530s desktop install

With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers. Hope this helps

1. Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. sammiller001_5.gif
2. The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays available networks. If you don't see your network (should be named something like 2wire), click Refresh network list in the upper left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower right corner. sammiller001_7.gif
3. Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. The key should be one of the numbers printed on the bottom of your 2wire modem/router. sammiller001_8.gif
4. Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key-click Cancel and return to step 3. After you're connected, you can close the Wireless Network Connection window. Now you're ready to browse the internet!

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop

Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
69010-click-control-panel.gif 2.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
69010-click-network-and-internet-connections.gif 3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Brand new aspire 5732z laptop comes up with code 31 fault on virtual wifi miniport adaptor says it has driver fault,what can I do

The Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter is a new feature in Windows 7, Wireless Hosted Network:

About the Wireless Hosted Network

This device is just a virtual device and it should not affect connecting the wireless network with the physical wireless adapter.

Hence, I’d suggest you to uninstall and re-install only the wireless network adapter drivers from Device manager and check if that fixes the issue.

Before uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, make sure you have a backup of the installation files.

It’s a good idea to create a restore point before uninstalling the drivers. A restore point is a representation of a stored state of your computer's system files. You can use a restore point to restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. Restore points are automatically created by System Restore weekly and when System Restore detects the beginning of a change to your computer, such as when you install a program or a driver.

Create a restore point

Visit the manufacturer’s website, download the latest wireless drivers and save it on your hard disk.

To uninstall the wireless connection from Device Manager,

1. Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start search box and hit Enter.
2. Locate Network adapters and expand the same.
3. Select the wireless connection, right-click and select Uninstall.
4. Restart the computer, if prompted.

Drivers should get installed automatically after restarting the computer.

Now, you may install the latest wireless drivers and check if that fixes the issue.

Hope this helps

Lan card

First of all are you sure there is one inside the computer? Secondly if it is installed inside the pc itself there may be a problem / driver not loaded. Make sure to install the drivers before trying to use your network adapter. Most of the time they come with a disk or you can download software from another computer!Have you tried another Lan Card? Just like any other PC component they can get fried.
