Wireless switch


There is no switch for wireless connections on a tower. If you have a wireless card installed in the computer it is on as long as the PC is powered up. If you do not have a wireless card in the PC, then you'll have to get one and install it in an unused slot on the motherboard.

Dell Vostro 320 network dead and now wireless network dead


I personally think all AIO PC's like the Vostro 320 are lemons because they have heat issues due to poor ventilation. The internals aren't easily accessible to the average user. And when one thing breaks inside the customer almost always has to send the whole unit back to the company to get fixed.

That being said, wireless adapters do frequently die due to overheating.

Luckily wireless adapters are very inexpensive. www.newegg.com has several decent usb adapters for less than $10 and with FREE shipping.

If I were you I'd give this model a try:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315091

I've personally purchased this exact model several times and never had a problem with it. It's super small and plugs into an open USB slot. Most times your operating system will even auto install the drivers for you too so it really doesn't get any easier than that.

Good Luck!

Dell optiplex GX620 desktop has an ethernet port on it, that is not an adapter, I cannot connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a driver for a wireless ethernet adapter, but that has not...


Okay,..........

1) You can download a wireless Ethernet adapter driver all day, but if you Do Not have a wireless adapter card installed in your computer, the drivers do you no good.

Or if you do not have a wireless USB adapter plugged into a USB port.

Example of a wireless adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4695358&CatId=2692

Example of a wireless USB device,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6367137&CatId=2692

Example of an Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

If you are just going to hardwire the computer, just buy an Ethernet adapter card, (PCI version), and install it in your computer, (On the motherboard), in any available white PCI slot.

IF it is the Mini Tower model.

The Desktop, Small Form Factor (SFF), and Ultra Small Form Factor (SFF) computers, are too small in width for a regular size Ethernet adapter card.

They need a Low-Profile Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833114034

This is for a Dell Optiplex GX620 Mini-Tower computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx620/en/ug/A02/mtabout0.htm#wp1051997

Scroll the page down until you come to the bold blue heading - System Board Components
This is an illustration of a Top view of the Mini-Tower's motherboard.

16 and 17 point to two PCI slots.
This is where an Ethernet adapter card that is the PCI version, will plug into.

PCI slots are White in color.
An example of a basic PCI slot, ( 3 are shown),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

If you do decide to go wireless;

1) Wireless networking operates at half of the speed of wired networking.

A computer that is wired directly to an Ethernet adapter card, is twice as fast on the internet, as a computer that is connected wireless.

2) Make sure your Router is capable of wireless.
Make sure the wireless router has a built-in Modem, or that you have a separate Modem.

[ For DSL.
Phone line connects to Filter. Filter has a place for a telephone cable, and an Ethernet cable.
Ethernet cable connects to Filter, and other end connects to Modem.
Ethernet cable goes from Modem to Wireless router that does not have a built-in Modem.

OR,
Phone line connects to Filter. Ethernet cable from Filter goes directly to wireless router, that has a built-in Modem.

Computer has to have a USB wireless device, or a wireless adapter card, installed.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

How easy is it to install a Network Interface Card into a Dell Dimension 4300? Any advice on what make/spec of card to buy?


If your PC has USB jacks, you can install a your choice of either wired or wireless network interface cards without as much as touching any tools (except for maybe a razor knife to open the package). If opening the case is something you're not comfortable doing, this may be the easiest way to get network connectivity.

Installing cards is not that difficult, but you need to open the case and determine if there is an open slot available and which type of slot it is. Most modern PCs have PCI slots and a PCI express (or older AGP video card slots). Again, not too hard figure out which type you've got.. search for pictures of slots on google. Look for PCI AGP PCIe and ISA slots so that you might compare them with those inside your PC to determine which type NIC you'll need. Then, buy a NIC that matches the slot and install as per directions.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

I want to buy a PCI network card for Dell Dimnesion 4700. I have not used one before . what is mopst approrpriate card?


An Ethernet adapter card that has a capability of a transfer rate, of up to 1000 Mega Bits per Second.

Just about all of them nowdays.

Older versions were 10/100, but now for the specifications it will state 10/100/1000 for a decent network adapter card.

Here is an example of one,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

Not an advertisement for website, nor manufacturer of network adapter card.

As for naming a manufacturer that makes the best one's? Doesn't really matter.

Would a router G work with a dimension 4700?


As long as the dimension still has its wireless card working properly, then it would definitely work with a G router..

To check, go to the device manager, open up the selection for network , and make sure you have a wireless card installed and the driver is working properly!

My network card got damaged during a storm. Dell desktop 4600c


If you don't want to wait until Dell send you back one, just go to Best Buy or any other computer store and buy a small-factor PCI network card, I assume you have an free PCI slot available, if you have a wireless router then it maybe be easy to get an external USB-based wireless network card.
