if it's a tower... you'll need a linksys pci wireless card... and a linksys router... install the drivers first... then... with the computer off... follow instructions for installing the card... connect the antenna... and then turn on. wiat for the computer to boot... it should automatically find the card... now... on the back of the cable modem... disconnect the wire that was going to the computer... and put it in the connection on the router that says "internet", now... disconnect the cable modem... wait 30 seconds... then plug it back in... wait 1 min. for everything to come up... now... connect the power to the router... and wait 1 min... go to the linksys icon in the taskbar... and double click on it... survey the site... when you find the wireless networks that are avil... choose the one that's got the strongest signal... and click connect. now... open the internet broser... and go to tools... internet options... then connections, down at the bottom... you'll see lan... click on it... you should see a box that says automatically detect settings... make sure this is checked...then click apply... then on o.k... and exit the internet.... then go back in... you should have internet...
I bought my sister a Dell laptop that didn't have a dial up modem in it, never saw one that didn't have one. Dell sells a dial up modem that goes into the usb port for about $35, which I sent to her and it works. Basically it is just an external dial up modem. Give it a try, just call the dell help phone number.
Yes call Fries Electronics let them know what model laptop you have they can tell you the type of memory you need SoDimm more then likely, they will give you a price. It is better to remove the old memory and take it with you when you go to buy it has to match. Also you can ask what is the largest recommended hard drive they have for this model laptop, probably 60gb. The motherboard for that laptop does have limitations. That laptop probably does not have a built in wireless card so you can either use a hard wire RJ45 Data cable and plug the other end into your Internet Router, or you can purchase a PCMCIA Wireless Card to insert into the slot on the side of the laptop. This PCMCIA Card will allow you to access the internet wirelessly. You have now beefed up your CPx Latitude.
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.
