Hi,

Make sure you have any appropiate software installed and that you are using the correct wireless authentication method (WEP/WPA ect...)

Also check to make sure there is not IP Conflict between your PC and another wireless device on the network.

You can also try assiging your PC a IP Address to use within the gateway address, or set it to obtain it automatically.

exact instructions to do this all depend on your operating system and the wireless connection utility used.

Hope this helps

I am currently using a wireless 'dongle' to connect to the internet but I feel that it would probably give me a more stable connection if I had a wireless card. Can anyone give me details of


Hi Lynda,
The best option for you would be to purchase a wireless PCI network card.
They are relatively inexpensive and should have a stronger signal over a longer distance than a wireless USB dongle.
Below is a typical wireless network card and it should be freely available from your local PC store

I have included a brief explanation for your convenience:

A PCI wireless adapter card connects to a desktop computer's PCI bus. Because the PCI bus is contained inside the computer, the unit must be opened and the wireless network adapter installed inside.
An example of a PCI wireless adapter card, the Linksys WMP54G is shown above. This unit is more than 8 inches (200 mm) long in order to accommodate the standard connection strip required to electrically join to the bus. The unit attaches and fits snugly inside the PCI, although the wireless adapter card antenna protrudes out the back of the computer

Best wishes,

Can this PC be converted to wireless? If so how? House has wireless thru AT&T. The original ethernet connect portal died. Already jerrymandered a second portal and that has now also gone dead.


The only way for making it wireless is buying a wireless network card/adapter that can be installed in your Desktop. You should look for a PCI/PCI Express Wireless Network Adapter.

Compaq Presario 5220 Desktop Windows 98 internet: Dial-up Can a DSL card be installed or would I need to go with a wireless USB? And would wireless USB work on Win98?


You can install a network card inside the computer. You will need a PCI or an ISA card. (I know PCI network cards are easy to find at most of the computer shops.) See this site for how to install a card: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93139 . However you should open your computer and check the space between the devices in the slots in the computer. There is an AGP slot with a video graphics card, 1 PCI/ISA slot with a modem (default specs), one free ISA slot and one free PCI slot. However depending on the graphics card one of these slots may be blocked by the card. You'll either need to get a card that fits the available slot or remove the modem and use that slot.

Here are some PCI 10/100 network cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=587&name=10-100%20Ethernet%20PCI/ISA . Most of these are compatible with Win98. I'm not sure if there are any gigabit NIC with Win98 drivers.

Wired and wireless USB NIC adapters exist. However, you will be limited to the USB speed. If you have USB 1.1, that will be really slow. Most likely your computer will require a reboot anytime the connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

(who recently removed an internal modem to put in a PCI gigabit card in a newer desktop than yours. The procedure was straightforward and improved network performance in the household immensely. The failing on-board NIC was tying up the router for everyone.)

Below you will find 2 options to add wireless connectivity to your desktop.
A. USB Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=6638&nf=44907%7e0%7e598274&sort=-ratingaverage&~ck=anav
This is the easiest solution to add a wireless connection. Simply connect the USB adapter, install the software it comes with and connect to the wifi signal, once configured.

B. PCI/PCI-e Hardware Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=5821&nf=44907~0~598274&sort=price&~ck=anav
Adding a PCi/PCI-e expansion card requires opening your computer and manually installing the card, then installing the driver/software and configuring the wireless access. These cards typically offer faster speeds and stronger radios to communicate with wifi signals better.
NOTE: There are 2 types of wireless cards in the second link: PCI/PCI-e and Half-Card/Mini-Card. Half/Mini-Card adapters are for laptops only - they will not work on desktop computers!
Both USB or PCI/PCI-e offer excellent solutions to getting wireless access from your desktop. Furthermore, since it can be purchased through Dell.com, they can ship anywhere worldwide, so delivery to the Netherlands should not be a problem.
If you have any questions, you can always contact Dell's Customer Support by telephone and be sure to give them your service tag number, that will ensure that you get only the parts that match your desktop.

ATI Radeon 9250 PCI card not recognised.


Make sure the slot isn't disabled either by jumper settings or in the bios, and the card is securely inserted in the slot. If these aren't the case, you have yourself a bad card, or a bad slot.

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message


This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:
