Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

Wireless connection with Dell 4600

I just took the DSL connection that my husband had to his Dell and attached it to an apple Airport Extreme, so that my daughter and I could use the connection too.  We each have notebooks, one Dell and one Mac.  One problem, his system seems to have no wireless capability.  Its "Help Center" describes an infra red connection.  I have no idea what that is.  I suspect that I need to get a card for his machine and install it- muy pronto.  
What do I buy, where do I install it???

They sell USB wireless adapters, that should do nicely.

The 4600 would not have a wireless card so you can get a PCI wireless card or a USB wireless card and install it to have wireless capabilities on the 4600.

I have a RCA Digital Broadband DHG535-2 modem but my Apple Airport Extreme router does not work, any ideas on how to resolve this issue?


Apple uses airport for its wireless connection, how ever the device where you want to connect to should have the wireless feature embeded to it or you should have a wireless router to distribute the wireless signal, if you are using just a modem which doesn't have capability of distributing wireless signals, the Apple airport will surely not work for it requires a modem to connect to. you need to get a router and connect it in your modem so the Apple will work for wireless as well.

Airport Extreme, Mac Cube and proposed Blue Ray /WIFI


Yes, you just need to connect the Airport to the modem. That way, the Airport will fetch the internet connection and distribute it to all your WiFi enabled device. You don't need any other hardware. You just need to configure the airport using your Mac computer.
Here's a quick setup guide from Apple.com:

Check your connections:

DSL-modem to telephone-jack (or cable-modem to cable-jack).

Ethernet cable from DSL-modem (or from cable-modem) to WAN port on your router.

Ethernet cable from LAN port on router to WAN port on your Airport.

Cut the power to the Airport, and then plug it back in, so that it restarts.

connect the airport extreme to the voyager using a network cable... factory reset the extreme and then connect to it using the airport utility... you should get a setup screen where you can switch the extreme to "bridge mode" .. everything else should happen automatically.. you will then have 2 wireless networks?

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
