The first thing I would try would be to reset the card, by removing the cover (if you are comfortable), removing the card from the slot and reinserting in the slot or moving the card to another slot (if there is an identical slot). If that doesn't work, replace the wireless card either with another wireless card or a USB wireless network adapter (external adapter that connects to a USB port). Good luck.

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

Wireless router with dimension 3000


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.
