Does a dell optiplex 260 have a phone modem?


Hi,
Yes it has a PCI slot where you can plug in a dial-up modem.
It also has an ethernet socket at the back where you could plug in a DSL modem for high speed internet.
Best wishes,

How do i make wi fi work on it?


Hello

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.

Connect the Ethernet cable to the back of the modem. There is a clearly marked Ethernet port here. This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.

Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the wireless router. This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.

Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.

Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router. Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual. This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions. Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.

Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load. When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.

Begin setting up your new wireless network. You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network. This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list. Choose whatever name you like.

Select a password for your new network. While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended. Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption. "WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.

Click "Apply" to save your changes.

Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.

Enter the password you chose for your network. You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

My ethernet cable does not fit into my PC.


Hi
Ethernet cables must be placed the right way round. Make sure that you are using the ethernet socket - it looks like this.

If it is an older computer you may not have an ethernet port. It is possible to install one - you will need to buy the necessary hardware.

It could also be that your ethernet cable is broken, or that you have the wrong cable. You can buy a new one from amazon.

Hope this helps

Somwhow, your ethernet card came loos while transporting the pc to another house. If you can open up the case, all you may have to do is re-seat the lan card firmly in its socket. be sure to turn off the power before working.

Connecting Wireless Modem to Laptop.


Firstly, you need to connect your router to a broadband activated phoneline. On the back of your router there is a socket which should say Phone Line and I believe it is at the top.
This will then radiate a radio broadband signal.

Next, you need to be able to link your computer(s) to your router. There are basically four ways of doing this.

1) ETHERNET - You can connect from the ethernet socket on your computer to the ethernet socket on your router. If you have an ethernet socket on your computer, this is the simplest connection but not always the most convenient. If you don't have an ethernet socket on your computer you will not be able to use the yellow cable.

2) USB - You can connect from the USB socket on the router to a USB socket on your computer. You will need to install USB drivers to do this, but it's not difficult.

3) WIRELESS - You can use a Wireless LAN Adaptor. This can either be a card, built in to your computer or an external USB linked wireless adaptor plugged into an available UBS socket on your computer. These are trickier to set up but you have the freedom to connect to the internet from anywhere within radio range of your router and without wires. Some computers have wireless network adaptors built in already, especially laptops. You can find out by doing the following:
Start\Programs\Accessories\Communications\Newtork Connections - check to see if any of the connections say 'wireless' If they do you're in luck.

4) HPNA - You could use a Home PNA Adaptor (HPNA). This allows you to connect to your router from a different room by plugging into a phone socket through through the HPNA. These can be a little unreliable and do suffere sometimes with interference.

As soon as you have connected to the router, you need to connect to the router's Gateway or control panel. This allows you to set a WEP security code for your network and stops your neighbour or anyone else from connecting to your network. If you use a wireless LAN you will have to set this up with your security code.

To prevent hash intereference to your phone, you need to use microfilters on each phone in your house. Usually a couple of filters will be included with your router, and you can easily purchase more, if you have phones all over your house.

Please find the guide for your router at the link below.
http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/1000_series_Gateway_Install_Guide.pdf

You can also download software and drivers from http://www.2wire.com
Just go to the support page and look for your particular model

Hope this helps....

Wired internet


The "smaller" plug you're talking about is an RJ45 plug, used for dial-up Internet - you'll get nowhere with that. You have a couple of options if you want to hook up your Ethernet cable. As you mentioned, yes there are plenty of USB to Ethernet adaptors out there, this is the simplest way of getting an Ethernet port on your computer. There are also PCI Ethernet Cards if you fancy your chances at installing it inside the computer, this will make it a little tidier and they're usually a little cheaper too. Your PCI slots, once installed will have the plugs located at the back of your PC, horizontally angled at the bottom - you usually have at least 4 slots, at the max of 7.
