How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop

Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Click Network and Internet Connections.

Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Internal wireless modem on but os does not recongnize it

check the network adapters in control panel, right click on the wireless adapter, check to see if it was inadvertently set to "disabled" then there is also sometimes a wireless off/on soft switch like FN button and a corresponding number key (look for the wireless icon), and sometimes a wireless physical switch on the front or side. if the above all fails. Identify the adapter. I would flip it over to get at the bottom, next I'd take the bottom cover off to expose the wireless adapter, this cover is typically marked with an antenna icon on the bottom. the card fits into a small slot about 1 inch wide held in by two clips on the outside. very easy to get out. then look at all the markings to identify what wireless make/model the card it is. and you can also check to make sure its not gotten knocked out of its seat. Now you know what your dealing with you can surf to the manufacturers website and look for a "driver" or software for your operating system. eg. vista. or xp. download, install , reboot. and with an ounce of luck. it will now work. (alot of these adapters also install ) best of luck. Cheers

Installing NIC card to dell optiplex gx100

NICs usually come in PCI interfaces. motherboards have usually four PCI slots to hold many devices such as NIC. just slide the card and fit it into the PCI slot. It could take any of the slots where it fits. the OS will detect it and loads the necessary drivers.

Internet dose not work

This model Dell laptop used a PCMCia card as a network adapter, which may or may not be installed in the slots on the side of the laptop. If one is installed you may need the dongle (an adapter that plugs into the card and ends in a standard network jack)

Believe u r talking about updating ur drivers for the wireless card...
right click on my computer--->click manage--->click device manager on left hand side on the window that opens---->click the + sign next to network adapters----> right click on wireless adapter----> click update driver

any driver installation is free or u can log onto the official website of 2wire... look for drivers matching ur wireless card... download & install
would suggest, while installing driver after downloading should plug out the usb wireless adapter.

Can't turn on wifi

you should have ACER Empower installed, so check that the wireless adapter is enabled, or press F2 on start up and look in the bios for the onboard wireless adapter and see if its enabled. If non of the above make any difference look in control panel>system>device manager>hardwre tab and look down the list for an exclamation mark, if you find one then the driver for the wireless is not installed, hence showing no device. If that does not work either then there is a possibilty that the wireless card is faulty.
