The wireless switch is generally on the front edge or a side edge of your notebook. They also usually have an led that will show status. You may have to enable this through bios if the switch doesn't work.

Can I download modem on dell laptop


Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.

Do I need a modem to connet my wireless acer aspire one to the high speed connection I have at home?


What you need is a wireless router. Your high speed internet connection at home might have a wireless router built into it, but some don't. What kind of internet connection do you have? what's the model of the modem you have. If you're not sure, just list the model numbers of all of the devices you have running.

Multiple computers, 1 modem, ethernet


If I were you, I would definately go with a wireless network. If you purchased a good router (Linksys or Netgear) you shouldnt experience loss of speed or connection. (If everything is installed correctly) If you need help, you could call the company who provides the router, Internet service Provider, or Geeksquad.
