Hi, A couple of questions first...Does the computer have a network port connection somewhere?
Do you already have the modem or is there a modem in your laptop that you wish to use?
Have you setup your account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
What type of Internet Service are you having or getting?
How old is the Laptop?

Why I ask is that generally if you have already setup your account with your provider, and depending on the type of account you have chosen they provide the modem and cables for you. All you have to do is plug it all in.
Please let me know and I can give you more details.

    Sorry the network port connection will look like a phoneline connection but slightly bigger.

    Meant to add that before I posted the previous comment.

    Also to find out if you have a modem, go to "Start" "Control Panel" and either "System" or "Maintenance and Performance" and then on the little tabs at the top of the window that comes up choose the "Hardware" tab (I think) and then at the top of there choose the "Device Manager". Look down the list til you find the modems entry double click on it and it will list what modems are installed.
    Hope that is of more help.

I got a used dell latitude cp and i'm wondering if it has a wireless card, or how i can hook it up to my wireless internet

Not sure, you should see, amongst all the led's which show when the Power / DVD or HDD are running. A small led which either looks like an antenna or has one inscribed near it.

If no, there's probably no card.

However, to connect to your wireless internet you may be able to use a PCMCIA card or a USB dongle. Just ensure the one you get is capable of decrypting at the standard you require ie WEP or WPA.

Dell latitude cp laptop how do you make it wireless for the internet

All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.

I bought a dell latitude cp m233sd second hand and it has a few software problems. apparently the previous owner deleted alot of items they shouldnt have. how can i restore it back to the manufactured...

If you received the CD's that the original owner received with the machine, re-install Windows and all of the drivers. After that install anti-virus software and go from there. If the CD's did not come with your purchase there's not much you can do to restore without software disks.

Old dell latitude pc need to connect to dsl?

This is a long way to get home, but it should work for you. High speed would be best so you don't tie-up the phone line. Anyway, on your main PC, go to and install their software. Very small and trouble free. Next, get teh old Dell on line and go to the same website. There is a large red area on the homepage. Click on 'Join Meeting' in the upper right corner of the red and follow the prompts. You will need to click RUN twice. Eventually you will come to a window prompting for a meeting id. Go back to the other PC and launch a meeting, enter the meeting id on the laptop and click join the meeting. On the main pc click on the red M near the clock and switch presenter to the laptop. On the laptop, click on the red M and go to remote control and give RC to yourself on the other PC. You will now be driving the laptop from your main PC. Go full screen. There will be a small menu bar at the top of the screen. On the left side you will see an icon of two arrows following each other. That's the file transfer. Open that and start moving the files you want from the laptop to the main PC.

This sounds like a lot of effort, but it is really quite straight forward and easy. I have used this to work on PCs across the USA, China, Australia and New Zealand. The best thing is it is free and it offers file copy, which most of the remote software does not.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you!

Not connecting to internet

The CPX doesn't have Wireless capabilities, unless you get a USB Wireless adapter. For now, use the Yellow Network lead to connect it to your router or modem, and then purchase a USB Wi-Fi adapter if you want to move it around more.

Sim card in computer?

Unfortunately no. You used to be able to get a usb cable and connect your cell as a modem and get free internet access, but the wireless companies have figured out that they can charge an unreasonable rate for internet access, and you now have to purchase an air time wireless card through your cell provider in order to connect through their cell services. It's a bummer, I know.
