Why can't my Dell desktop computer pick up my wireless connection? It keeps telling me a cable is unpluged but the wireless service is working fine.

Most desktop computers, and especially office models, do not have integrated wireless networking like laptops do since they are not portable. They were designed for wired network cabling. If the desktop HAS wireless capability, there would need to be an expansion card installed and a wireless antenna protruding from the back, or it needs a wireless transmitter/receiver dongle plugged into a USB port. If it doesn't have either of these, it probably doesn't have wireless. However, wireless connectivity is as easy as getting a wireless USB dongle for about 35-40 USD.

A USB adapter will work well.
if you have an available PCMCIA slot you could use that as well.

Your battery pack gets inserted on the underside of your laptop, it slides in and locks on.. Line up the track and simply plug it in.

What wires are you referring to that came with the laptop?? what do they look like?

You only use your modem if you're planning in using DIAL-UP for your internet connection... Otherwise you'll never need it..Your modem port is the one that fits a telephone cord plug... the wider one that looks similar is your Ethernet port - which is used for either dsl or ethernet/cable connection...

Bluetooth is a means of connectiong perifferals to your laptop such as a cell phone, a PDA, a headset....etc.... Its a short range wireless connection method..

Wifi is your wireless connection wireless Wan is Wide Area Network.. mainly used for business and Companies that have servers overseas and such..
Wifi Wireless LAN is local Area Network... Which is what you would be considered if you use Wireless to connect to internet..

To Use Wireless You Also Need A Wireless Capable Router/Modem

Analog Phone Line Is THe "old Land Line Connected Phone" as apposed to a digital phone...

the LCD panel is referring to the Screen of your laptop.. The LCD Panel is made up of Layers Of Films, A Backlight Panel, LCD Bulb, and A Glass Digitized Panel

You turn off the Power Either By Holding Down Your Power Button until it completely shuts down, or shut it down through windows... START/Shut Down

KeyCaps are the Additional Key Functions that all laptops have... To access these Key Functions, You Press The Function Key (Fn) along with the corresponding F-Key or other key...

Storage media refers to any media capable of storing data... Such as a secondary hard drive, A Media Card, A Thumb Drive A Flash Drive A Camera Memory card... etc....

Doubtful that you have a floppy drive on that laptop... But if you do, the standard 1.44 Floppy Disk Works

To make a backup, If its a FULL backup, you will need to use DVDs or better yet, use a Flash Drive (USB thumb drive), or you can get yourself an external hard drive to store your backups onto...

Expres card is the wide slot on the side of your laptop,,, Used for Different cards, Wireless cards, Ethernet Cards, Extra Usb Slots Card, Data Storage cards.. Etc...

Adding Dell to Airport extreme

You wireless card can be controlled 2 ways, the card Wireless Utility (Dell Wireless or Intel Wireless Utility are the normal default ones) and the "Windows Zero Config" Windows wireless utility. You may need to go in to the Dell/Intel Wireless utility, and select "Let Windows Manage My Wireless" You should then get a popup saying wireless networks are available, click that balloon, select your network, and click connect. If secure, at that point you'll be prompted to type the passkey. If you are using an older Wireless card, it may only support WEP security. Vista and newer systems use a newer protocol, WPA.
