Very easy. Remove the power cord from the computer. Now remove the side panel off the computer. On the very back of the computer where the LAN card connection is you will see a phillips screw holding it in place. Remove that screw and then from inside the computer pull the card up and out of the slot it is in. Place the new card in and press firmly to seat it. Replace the screw on the back, and the side panel. Plug the power back in and you are done.

No internet connection with lan on my dell dimension 4700 i up dated drivers but no luck. wy wireless works but no hard wired. i just installed win 7.


Kindly check Device Manager if the driver has been successfully installed. Check if there is a bang (exclamation mark) under Network. Make sure that the downloaded driver is compatible with Windows 7. If this has been done, 1. Go to BIOS and see if LAN has been disabled 2. check if there is a blinking light on the LAN port on your computer. If there isn't, then I guess you may need to change your LAN card.

Lan card not found


Please, follow the instructions below, and reply with the status of your LAN driver:
Start>Control Panel>System & Security>Device Manager>Network Adapters...

Find your LAN card and see if it has a question mark by it. Try to right-click on it and update the driver. If that doesn't work, uninstall the driver, reboot your computer, and re-install the driver.

Also, let me know what model computer your using and whether or not its Windows XP..

Thank you!

How do you connect to the internet on a sony pcv-120 since i dont see a ethernet plug in anywhere


It is possible that your desktop does not have a LAN card installed.
Go into the Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and click on Network Adapters and if there isn't a LAN adapter then there isn't one installed.
Then you need to purchase a LAN card and install it in your desktop computer.

I have a IBM thinkcenter 8123 model. I can't install lan due to lac of suitable driver! pls help me!


Go into the bios on your computer and shut down the onboard LAN, find a 3com or realtek LAN card and install it, windows has the drivers build in for most 3com cards, then you go to IBM site, download the drivers you need for the onboard LAN connection, remove the 3com card let the computer boot up, and when it asks for the driver point it to where you downloaded the drivers for the onboard LAN.

The wireless router needs its wireless settings configured and also the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router’s wireless settings so the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with the wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
