To make this PC wireless capable, you would have to install a wireless network interface card, also known as a wi-fi card or wireless adapter. There are also USB wireless adapters, so you wouldn't have to open your case and install a card. For more information, here is a link to the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_network_interface_controller
You need a driver for the card.

Emachines are the worst computer to have. They have more problems since they are manufactured so cheaply. My advice is to sell it and purchase a HP, Or a DELL.
When the power supply gets a spike it shorts out the Mother board instantly
Emachines do not beleive installing a fuse so that is why the mother board goes too
Sometimes wireless phones will interfere with the signals. If the router or PC is anywhere near a phone, it might have a problem. I have one wireless network card that gives me fits like that. I have yet to get a PC working with it. I have other wireless cards that work fine. I also switched to 5GHz phones, which helped my old laptop. Check to make sure there's not a conflict with the encryption used by either the dell or the router.

What specific error message/s does your computer prompt when you trying to install the wireless USB adapter? Since your running Windows XP you can skip on "run the CD first", try uninstalling all the componets for the adapter then restart the computer, when the computer is booted up properly insert the USB adapter(preferably used the USB port on the back of your desktop for maximum power). When the found new hardware wizard pops up, choose install software automatically(make sure that the setup CD for the USB adapter is already loaded on the CD-ROM drive then hit next.
If the installation proceeds click on finish a bubble should appear on the lower right hand side of your dekstop screen(syatem tray) prompting you that one or more wireless network is being detected, click the baloon and check if your network will show up on the list.
Is your local or built in Lan card is enable? try to disable then enable your wireless network card second things to do is the location of your wireless router range put it more nearest to your pc hope this will help oyu
If you have Blinking light on your d-link wireless adapter, then it is aquiring a IP address from your router. Did you add your d-link adpter to your router? How many computer are accessing your router? Do you have your router set with Encryption code? You might need to change channels. Did you name your (SSID)?
