Nope ...all you need is a wireless network available in the area...or if you have a modem or LAN connection you need a wireless router to have wifi signal in your home ....
even if it finds available wireless signal in your area...it can not connect without passwords cause most people protect their broadcast...
you can try to connect to a free wireless network available in a public place ..such as cafe's or public institutions...just to see if the problem isn't from your machine ...sometimes it does have problems from the driver or from bad installation...

Firewire network adapter dongle and install it. where can i find this


Depends upon where you live. MY question is though, why are you not using the built in WIFI to connect to the Internet? It is there for the using. Unless there is something wrong with it, of course. Be advised, unless you have an Internet Account (via an ISP), or are near a free WIFI connections, just having an adapter won't get you connected to the Internet. It's not the same as putting up an antenna and receiving broadcast TV signals. Since we last talked, I looked into a Firewire network adapter. They don't seem to exist. The problem is that the 1394 standard never got up on its own two feet, as the USB 2.0/3.0 overwhelmed it. SO, if you are looking for an external WIFI adapter, you'll most likely need a USB dongle. Sites like Newegg.com and TigerDirect.com can assist you. You can even get wireless adapters at your local Walmart!

What parts are needed to set up wifi?


That machine does not appear to have any PCI slots, or built-in WI-Fi. You may be able to get a USB 2 Wi-Fi adapter. Just make sure the one you get works with your Operating System. Also, you will have to have a Wi-Fi router to connect to your Internet Service Provider.

Wifi router for emachines D525 on Desktop


Hi there Ledile, Very descriptive error report you have given us there.

If the laptop is saying there is an internet connection and you can visit a website on it then there is no problem.
If there is no connection then look on the outside of the case for a little switch that will turn the wifi on and see if that helps.
Of course if the laptop has never been connected to your local router via wifi then you will have to input the router's wifi key..

I hope this helps you.
If you could be more descriptive with your problem I could help you better..

I cannot connect to the internet with my belkin wireless adapater and i don't know why, please help.


you need more than a wireless adapter to connect to the internet......
you need a wireless network to connect to. in cafe's and pubs the owner sometimes sets up a WiFi network that their patrons can connect to, however most people have to provide their own.

to get to the internet , you will need.

A broadband connection (ADSL / Cable) this normally comes with a standard NON wifi modem
A WiFi Router (including ADSL / Cable Modem) depending on what you have already.


then to link a remote PC / Laptop to this network, A suitable wireless adapter ( like your belkin adapter)

it is a common misconception that a wireless adapter is all you need (advertising is vague)
