I have an older emachine desktop without wi-fi


You can buy a WIFI card that installs into the PCI slots on your MB, or you can buy WIFI USB cards that are equally as powerful. Just be sure to buy the correct WIFI Product that is suitable with the WIFI signal you are trying to get on, i.e. 802.11 B, G, and N. Hope this helps. I installed a TP-Link WIFI PCI card in my 8 year old Acer Aspire T650 and it works great. Good luck.

Can i take the wifi from my dell optiplex 160l and put it in my acer computer?


The answer to your question will depend on what expansion slots your new Acer desktop computer has and whether one of these will match the specific 'half mini PCI-e' card which is used in the Dell Optiplex 160L per http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/optiplex-160/pd which states it is an Optional Dell Wireless 1397 802.11BG Half Mini-PCIe card.
You will also need to obtain the device drivers for this wireless card in order to use it in the Acer.
Given that the Dell wireless card is only an 11/54MB standard card (802.11BG) I would recommend buying a newer 802.11N wireless card which will be sold with the necessary device driver and software applications needed, will give higher speed connectivity access and be much simpler to install and manage.

I have broadband with a wireless router but it wont connect without an ethernet cable, I cannot seem to find a wifi driver on the pc to enable me to use my wireless router


As you have mentioned that you have a desktop PC . So you need a wifi lan card to access the wireless router. Then you can access the internet through your wifi router. You can buy a wifi lan card for the same and go for Netgear GA311 for the same. Hopefully it will help you.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Thanks.
Have great day.

How to enable wireless network on targa computer


Harry, If you mean to access WiFI, then all you have to do is buy a WiFi dongle. Install it and then insert the dongle into the USB port. and you are on. But, if you want to run a WIFi hot spot on your PC, then you need to install a wireless router so that other devices having a WiFI capability can connect to it. You need to set up a WireLess LAN for which there exists a wizard in Windows.

Intermittent wi-fi


Most laptops you can just flip them over and open an access panel. Usually just 2 or 3 screws are all that stand in your way. Some laptops like 1000 Model HP's require you to remove the entire plastic panel on the bottom. You will recognize the wireless card inside by two distinct cables that attach to two corners of it. It is usually 1.5 x 1.5 inches big and will have one cable hooked to main and one to auxillary. These cards are available for purchase online if you google internal wireless cards notebook. There may be other types out there but i run into this one almost every time!

Emachine model T3302 desktop ethernet question


Hi,

The "Realtek RTL 8139/810X family fast Ethernet NIC card" is a wired networking device. What you need is a WiFi Networking which can either be a PCI card (you need to open the PC and physically mount it inside) or perhaps the easiest, is to get a USB WiFi. There are so many brands, models and versions available and just about any would work. You need to verify though that the USB WiFi is compatible with your daughter PC's operating System (XP or Vista). Some known good brands are LinSys, DLink, NetGear. Some models/versions are simple gadgets that they look like a thumb/flash drive while others have a USB cable with a tabletop mount/rack/cradle.

Such can be bought from any computer shoppe/store. Most models come with an instruction/installer/driver CD that you need to run first before plugging in the WiFi USB.

If you already have an existing DSL account that connects to the Realtek, you would also need to get a Wireless AP/Router. It would probably be easier if you get a match pair (same brand)

If this is a completely new DSL WiFi setup, you need to get in touch with any WiFi Provider in your area. Most would provide a free USB WiFi Adapter if you subscribe to them so there would be no need to buy the USB WiFi adapter nor the Wireless AP/Router.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
