I agree with d_coueslant, as you are running vista you need a bucket load of ram,and as windows only see's around 3.5 gig, if your luck, (unless your running a 64 bit o/s )more ram may solve the problem,

you could try removing any programs that start at boot time to release some ram,
or increase your virtual memory if you have enough spare hard drive space.
if i can help any further please ask

good luck
Terry

How do I hookup a dell inspiron I 6603049


To attach a computer to the internet, you will need to have an internet connection in your home.
Your Dell inspiron desktop does not have a wireless connection card in it, unless you ordered that with your purchase. Unlike laptops, which mostly do have a Wifi card in it, to be more mobile.

After subscribing you will probably get a router to connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) something like this, sometimes the antenna's are inside (the antenna is for wireless connections):http://www.dlink.com/-/media/images/Products/DIR/803/DIR803A1ImageHBack.png
In the yellow port comes the internet connection from the modem, in the ports 1,2,3 and 4 you can connect internet capable devices, so also a desktop computer.

Then to get your computer connecting to the router you need to attach a so-called patch cable http://www.computercablestore.com/Certified_Cat_6_Patch_Boo_Blue_catID2175.aspx
to the router and to your computer in the network port: Sometimes the ISP gives one added to the package when you get your router.

Normally after booting up the computer will find the network automatically, else call the helpdesk of your internet provider or ask a computer knowledgable person to help you.

This is a Fibre Glass Modem on the right and next to it a router (left), the router can connect to your computer.

I have one computer on the internet what do I do toset up a wireless router for second computer?


The wire that is connected to the first computer probably goes to your modem. Take the wire from the modem and put it into a wireless router that has wire output, put another wire from the modem back to your first computer. Then check the settings. You should then run the setup program for the new router so that you can set the wireless security and other settings.

On my window update i get error code 663


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have

extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured

or click start type in event viewer press ENTER

you might be able work your way through the problem

The 633 error is a connection problem that appears every time you try to use the modem on your computer.

It states "modem is already in use" and prevents you from accessing the Internet.


This problem mostly appears when a device with incompatible drivers has conflicts with the modem driver on your computer system.


The major software that causes this error is the Palm Pilot Software.

With some simple troubleshooting steps, resolve this modem communication error.


Shut down all currently running applications and restart your computer.

Press "F8" repeatedly before Windows begins to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.


Scroll down and select "Safe Mode." Press "Enter" to log into Windows Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is used for troubleshooting and repairing system components.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "Control Panel."

Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to open the programs window.


Click "Program and Features" (Windows Vista users) and select "Uninstall a Program" to open the programs window.


Click the incompatible software (e.g., Palm Desktop and Synchronization Software) and select "Change/Remove."


Click "Yes" to confirm and uninstall the program from your computer.


Restart your computer normally to complete the process.


Hope this helps

Wifi modem is not recognized


Try recycling the wireless router by unplugging the power to it and wait 20 seconds then plug the router back in. Sometimes that is all it takes.

After recycling the router if the adapter still does not show any wireless networks make sure you don't have the wireless radio turned off in the software that runs the adapter.

If all fails, try the adapter in another usb port if it is a usb adapter.
You could reinstall the adapter's software and driver.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Compaq SR1720NZ to wireless?


i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.

Need to download a wireless adapter for my Gateway 830gm desktop


Are you sure there is no wireless device in the machine? Picking up a wireless connection in a desktop without a wireless device is a bit of an impossibility. Do you have a cellular device connected to the computer? Some of the cell wireless cards (Sprint for example) double as wireless cards for wifi hotspots. Many cell phones can be treated as wireless modems on your computer. Take another look and post back.

Try unplugging the router and the cable/dsl modem if you have one. Wait 10 seconds and then plug the modem in. Wait a minute for the modem to boot back up and then plug the power to the router back in. Wait a little for the router to boot up and then reboot your computer.
