Does the dell studio 540 pc come with a built in wireless card

The wireless card was optional for that particular computer. You can see if you have one by clicking the start button (lower left corner) right click on computer and select "manage". When the window opens click device manager in the left window and find "network adapters" in the larger center window. If you see a wireless card listed in that then you have one and it should be activated already (there's no on/off switch for wireless on a desktop). If you don't, any PCI wireless card can be purchased for 15-30 bucks. To install it, turn off and unplug your computer, take off the side panel of your machine, remove the i/o cover adjacent to the PCI slot you plan to use and insert the card into the pci slot and secure it with the screw that held the cover on. Power on your computer and run the driver installation software that came with the card you purchased.

I am currently using a wireless 'dongle' to connect to the internet but I feel that it would probably give me a more stable connection if I had a wireless card. Can anyone give me details of

Hi Lynda,
The best option for you would be to purchase a wireless PCI network card.
They are relatively inexpensive and should have a stronger signal over a longer distance than a wireless USB dongle.
Below is a typical wireless network card and it should be freely available from your local PC store

I have included a brief explanation for your convenience:

A PCI wireless adapter card connects to a desktop computer's PCI bus. Because the PCI bus is contained inside the computer, the unit must be opened and the wireless network adapter installed inside.
An example of a PCI wireless adapter card, the Linksys WMP54G is shown above. This unit is more than 8 inches (200 mm) long in order to accommodate the standard connection strip required to electrically join to the bus. The unit attaches and fits snugly inside the PCI, although the wireless adapter card antenna protrudes out the back of the computer

Best wishes,

What do I need to activate wireless on insignia D400a through broadband?

To use Wifi on a D400 series PC, you would need to purchase a wifi PCI card (Do not get any PCIe or PCI2 or newer card specs) or wifi USB adapter.

Need to know what pci card to buy for a 830 gateway computer to make it wireless

Any Pci wireless card should do, although I'd go for a trusted make like Belkin, or Netgear. You basically want one with the following specification. (as an example)

I have a T40 IBM that just got the 1802 error. downloaded a bootable fix that I made to a CD. Set both startup and network to look for the CD drive first. Cannot get past the double beep on the POST test...


To correct this issue, you will need to remove the PCI wireless card from your laptop or disable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

On IBM's, the Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer.

After removing card or disabling the
mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu, boot your computer. Make sure to update your BIOS. The new BIOS version can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.

This issue has been corrected in the latests BIOS updates released.

After updating the BIOS, you can reseat the PCI Wireless card or enable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

Note that once you have removed the wireless card, you will not have wireless connection until you update the bios and replace it.

Hope this helps.

I purchased an HP A4327C desktop computer and wanted to convert it to wireless. I purchased a Level One11g Wireless PCI card and the card will not fit into the slot inside of the computer. Is it the wrong...

On your computers motherboard, you have three slots
  • PCI slot
  • 1 PCI express slot 16
  • 2 PCI express slot 1
You would require a PCI express 1 ex wireless card for the system
