the hard wired connection to the modem could be a system configuration issue, the cable has gone bad, or the modem is having connectivity issues with the service.
if your optical drives are not working physically, then you can't really fix that. if they just arent responding properly or Windows cant detect that they are there, then you may need to reinstall the driver software for the drives. which can be found on the Dell website or the manufacturer of the optical drives.
yes you can set up a wireless connection with a USB adapter but the modem also needs to have wireless capability in order for you to create the connection.
there are external USB optical drives available. so you can purchase a usb connected CD/DVD drive or burner. they shouldnt be very expensive nowadays.
It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.
Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.
