HI,
On your computers motherboard, you have three slots

  • PCI slot
  • 1 PCI express slot 16
  • 2 PCI express slot 1
You would require a PCI express 1 ex wireless card for the system

Thanks
Proton

How do i enable wireless internet on a 2 year old HP desktop


You have to have a wireless card installed on the desktop. Either a PCI wireless card that will be installed inside the computer on one of the pci slots or you can use a usb wireless card that plugs into the usb port.

Unlike laptops, there will be no switch to turn on or off. The wireless on desktops is controlled by the software program that comes with the wireless adapter.

When the site comes up just type: PCI Wireless Adapter or USB Wireless Adapter in the white search box at the top of the page and click GO.

Need to know what pci card to buy for a 830 gateway computer to make it wireless


Any Pci wireless card should do, although I'd go for a trusted make like Belkin, or Netgear. You basically want one with the following specification. (as an example)

Emachines desktop with netgear wireless adpater


You need a driver for the card.
Download one here if wanted after reading on.. I will have the link below inwhich you can click onto for instant access

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

Is there space to install an internal wireless card in an HP Pavilion Slimline s7310n PC (it is about 4 years old)?


Hi there,

Open your computer. Near the bottom of your motherboard you will find two available PCI slots:

You can insert your Internal Wireless Card in to either of these two slots. This is what an Internal Wireless Card looks like:

These cards are available at Amazon.com or at Ebay.com

How do i set up wireless internet on my hp pavillion a330n desktop? Do i need a wireless card or is it built in? and where do i put the wireless card if i need one?


Hello,

Yes you need a wireless adapter.

Solution one : Get PCI wireless adapter which you will insert in an empty PCI slot inside your computer.

Solution 2. Buy a USB wireless adapter, which you plug in a USB port.
However, if my memory serves me right, that particular HP pavillion is 5 or 6 years old, and it does support USB 2.0, just USB 1.1

My advice to you is to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card to be installed in an empty PCI slot )or in the one occupied by the firewire )if not needed). This card will provide 4 or 5 USB 2.0 adapters. Then buy a USB wireless adapter, which you will be able to use with other computers.

Hope It helps.
