Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 that I need to hook up to a Verizon Wireless situation. It has a Netgear card in it, plus the antenna for the back. The NetGear info. on the screen shows it has a Very Good connection, but will not "turn green" to give the connection. Any help is appreciated - we called Verizon and they were of no help. Thanks.

Have you installed the Netgear wireless card driver already?

If you did, then go to the network connections on Control Panel and right-click the wireless icon then select "View Available Wireless Networks".

On the left hand side of the window, click "Change advance settings". A window will appear and see if you have a wireless tab. If you don't have the wireless tab, do these steps:

Click Start, then Click Run. Type services.msc and click ok.

Scroll down all the way to the bottom and double-click Wireless Zero Configuration and set it to automatic then click the "Start" button to start the service. Close the window.

Again, go to the network connections in control panel and right-click the wireless icon. Click the Change Advance Settings again and now you'll be able to see the wireless tab. Click it and put a bullet-point to "Let windows manage wireless connections" Click apply and Close or OK.

Right-click again the Wireless icon to view available wireless networks. Wait until the window populates and click the name of your network. Click connect and enter the password if prompted.

Happy surfing!!! ^_^

How do i access wireless internet on a dell dimension 4500s computer to a actiontec m1000 router


To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How to connect a netfear router to a dell computer


I assume the Netgear is a wireless router and you want to connect to the router using a wireless connection.
Make sure the DELL computer wireless card is installed with the latest wireless card driver.
The Netgear router needs to be configured with the wireless settings ie SSID and encryption etc.
Next the wireless card needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.

Wireless router with dimension 3000


It seems that you have Dell Desktop computer, unless you requested a wireless card to be put into the computer, it would not come with one. Just like stang_1 mentioned, you should check your network adapters to see if your wireless card is listed. Also since it is a desktop, you can check the back of it to see if you have an Antenna sticking out of it. That would indicate that you have a wireless card on the PCI slot. And if that is the case and you do not see it listed in the network connections, check the Device Manager and make sure that the drivers are installed properly.

Wireless internet


you need to get a PCI Wireless card or a USB Wireless adapter, if you are talking about an 802.11 wireless router.

If you are talking about Sprint wireless Broadband or the link (WWAN service) you'll need a USB WWAN adapter which are available by all major Wireless vendors (Verizon, Sprint, ATT etc(
