Hi, did you run the CD before you connected the adapter? I know the box says 'easy, no set-up' but there usually is a CD that needs to be run BEFORE connecting the device. If thats done, try bringing up the 'connect to a network' interface, selecting your network and click connect. If you have set up a wireless security password, enter it and click connect. The network cable unplugged is normal when you are running a wireless setup. I hope this is of some help.

Does the dell studio 540 pc come with a built in wireless card


The wireless card was optional for that particular computer. You can see if you have one by clicking the start button (lower left corner) right click on computer and select "manage". When the window opens click device manager in the left window and find "network adapters" in the larger center window. If you see a wireless card listed in that then you have one and it should be activated already (there's no on/off switch for wireless on a desktop). If you don't, any PCI wireless card can be purchased for 15-30 bucks. To install it, turn off and unplug your computer, take off the side panel of your machine, remove the i/o cover adjacent to the PCI slot you plan to use and insert the card into the pci slot and secure it with the screw that held the cover on. Power on your computer and run the driver installation software that came with the card you purchased.

Can i installe wifi to my inspiron 530


You sure can, you have two options. You can open the case and install a wireless pci adapter into one of the pci slots. Or you can install a wireless usb adapter into one of the usb ports. Just depends on if you want to go inside the computer to install the pci one or not have to deal with that and install the usb one. One advantage of the one that goes into the pci slot is you don't have to worry about someone taking it out or walking away with it. But if that's not a concern the usb one will do great.

Below are links to both kinds that I use all the time for repairs and upgrades. The usb one is really powerful and has a real good signal range to be so small.

Can I install wifi card on M5641?


According to the Acer Support web site for your desktop computer you should have one or two free PCI slots that could be used if you decide to add a wireless lan card.

The alternative would be get a USB wireless adapter that wouldn't need you to open the computer case and have the advantage that you could plug the adapter in to a USB extension cable and position the wireless adapter to maximise the wireless signal.

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

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.

I have a "Dell, Inspiron 8100" that is not wireless capable. I was wondering which external wireless card will make this computer able to receive and process a wireless signal.


For PCI adapters, I go with TrendNet. I would recommend a USB adapter though. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they all pretty much do the same thing. Here is a link to a ton of them:

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
