    Depending on what you want to do with the wireless network card is very important.

    (Example). If you want to connect to a excitant wireless router you would need a PCI-e wireless network card.

    On the other hand if you want you're Dell to be the accesses point for other wireless PC's or notebooks to connect through you're dell than you would need WiFi wireless network card. Any model will work in you're Dell.

How to create hotspot in dell vostro 200 ?


Deepa christopher
Unfortunately, you cannot make the computer a hotspot without a wireless card installed. You could add a wireless card and then search the internet on how to setup the computer as a hotspot with the OS installed on the computer.
Thank You,

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!

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

Hello,

I would recommend setting up a new connection for your home. Do this: Start>My Network Places. Once open, on the left side you will see Set up a home network connection. Click on this and follow the wizard's instruction.

Good Luck

I have a dell vostro pc and i now have a wirelse router. Do i need a card to make a wireless connection?


Unless your wireless router is standing next to your PC (in which case you can plug in a network cable between you pc and router) you will need a get a Wireless PCI adapter. If your tower is vostro 200 slim then you need to make sure the adapter has a small backplate since the slimline towers are very "thin". Perhaps a USB Wireless adapter is best in that case.

I have a dell Vostro 200..I want to go wireless with a Airport, Just got a Mac with the airport, will this work?


The airport is just a receiver that picks up wireless signals.

If you want your computer to pick up wireless, you need a wireless
router, and a wireless card that goes into the computer so it can see the router and get the signals.

There are tons of wireless products, and it depends on the slots you have on which kind of wireless card you get.
