Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

INTERNET EXPLORER IS NOT WORKING


Please click on the link below

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.6.9/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%203.6.9.exe

Save the file on the desktop and save it in a flash memory or a CD from a working computer and in the computer where your internet explorer is not working, install it and start using it. if it works then we have to update your computer with the latest internet explorer by using the link below.

http://www.discover.msn.com/get/download-ie8-optimized-for-bing-and-msn-3/?WT.mc_id=MSCOM_DLC_US_F_113LSUS004273

Click on download now button and download the latest IE for your windows.

If the links did not work, nor your firefox works then you have to troubleshoot for a no internet issue which includes restarting your DSL modem and wireless router (if you have one)...

I would suggest getting a wireless router. one that supports the security on your laptop wireless card...then you can still hook up wired on the desktop and you can set up the wireless security and connect wireless to your laptop.

Do I need a wireless router to connect to the internet on a Toshiba L645D-S4056


Not strictly speaking.
You can use a wire instead if you have a port (hole) for ethernet plug (slightly larger than a phone port).
In coffee shops you'll be using wireless, but they provide the router.

We had a storm and since then I cant connect to the internet...the connection's good but I cant connect (tried IE and firefox-neither worked)


You should try unplugging your router and cable / dsl modem for a few minutes, then reboot your computer.

That's the first and easiest way of fixing it.

Can siemens speedstream 4200 be used with wifi antenna. do not want dsl.


The Siemens is a DSL modem and doesn't meet with your requirements.
Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Won't connect to AT&T DSL service


Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.

I'm having trouble hooking up my zonet wireless router. I put the cd in and did everything but it still wont work.


Are you running a DSL connection, or is it cable? If you have a DSL connection, the router IP and the DSL modem will conflict with each other trying to establish connection. This may be something to call zonenet customer support on to find out if it is possible to change the router IP address so they don't conflict. If you want to basically "PLUG and PLAY" return the zonenet router and get a D-Link wireless router. They are most compatable with DSL connections.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:

You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.
