Depends on the card. If it is USB put it into the USB port, if it is PCMCIA (PCcard) plug it into that port. Install your drivers first.

Linksys router password


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Can I hoop up a wireless router to this computer


You can hook up any computer/laptop to a wireless router via LAN cable or by wireless connection.
For a wireless connection each computer/laptop needs a wireless card and the wireless card driver installed and the wireless card needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings.

I have a Dimension 2400 Celeron desktop. Can I put in a wireless card?


Hello

Yes unless the PCI slots are already being used. Buy a Linksys or Dlink PCI wireless card and follow the instructions very carefully. You will be at some point opening the case. Make sure then power is absolutely disconnected. I'm assuming you do have a wireless network already? If not then you'll need to purchase a wireless router also.

Hi there.
You hit the nail right on the head!! desktops don't come wireless enabled so you will need a wireless card installed into it.
I recommend a wireless PCI card as a Dongle are not that good and can be easily broken.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can an eMachine computer be configured for wireless use?


You would need to purchase a wireless card. The card will come with the software you need or you can use Windows to configure.

Try the D-Link DWL-G510 or similar.

You could try using a wireless adapter that connects through usb but the connection is not as strong. Otherwise I would try to buy an internal wireless card which is just installed into a PCI slot on your motherboard.

One of the laptops we are using on the wireless modem/router is not detecting the modem even though it has been installed as instructions, whilst the second laptop that we installed the adapter onto is...


Let me make sure I understand the issue. You have a wireless adapter that works on one laptop but not the other? If so, blow out the card slot on the defective one with compressed air. Make sure it's firmly in place while the machine is off. So when it's clean and firmly in place, now turn it on. It should recognize and come right up.

If not, you may have to reinstall the device. I mean the actual slot. remove the wireless card, Right click on my computer and hit properties. Hardware tab, then device manager. Find the PCI slot in the list and delete it. reboot the laptop and it will automatically reinstall the slot. after it says your new device has been installed and is ready to use, put the wireless card in and it should work.

Hello,

In Ideal scenarios, you should just plug in the card in the notebook and it should get installed automatically.

Than you may scan for the available networks and you should be able to see the network of your Netgear router(Assuming that the Netgear you have mentioned is wireless capable and configured).

You can connect to the network and it should work fine.

Let me know what happens.
Regards,
Sammy
