Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am using a wireless data card in my desk top to access internet. Each time I want to surf internet I insert the data card in the USB Port and before shutting down the computer I remove it.This has to be done at least ten times a day. I am worried such frequent inserting and removing the card may damage the USB Port. If I do not remove the card, will it damage the card or the computer? Please advise the best method so that my card , USB port and computer are all safe..

Dont worry about your card or USB of your computer...

Better you put permanently the data card in your system...

Dont have a wireless card on one of my desk tops can i get the net with a usb stick


You can install a PCI wireless card in the desktop computer or you can use an USB wireless device. Both of these devices can connect to your wireless router, but they need to be configured with the router's wireless settings.
If you do not have a wireless router, then you can get an USB wireless modem device that connects to the Internet that uses the 3G mobile network. The advantage of this, you can connect to the Internet anywhere you get mobile coverage with that Internet Service provider.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

Can I access the internet wirelessly with a desktop pc?


Theoretically, yes. you'll just need to install the correct driver on the dell and know what you're doing when you install the wifi card.

Lan internet


Hi,

the easiest way to setup internet on the laptop, is to go to control panel, and launch the network setup wizard. this will enable you to setup a new network, and scan for a local area network connection. this will also give you access to the troubleshooter. to solve any connection problems or issues, should there be any. If your using a wireless method. Your PC must also be able to transmit/receive wireless Signals. If hardwired you,ll have to use the network setup wizard, as this will auto determine I.P And any other DNS settings et,c.

Hope this Helps Mike @ compurepair.

Card slot? and wireless internet.


Hi Jenny,

Most laptops would have a slot on the left side for PCMCIA, a standard for small, credit card-sized devices. Often actually, there would be two (2) of them, one on top of the other with a plastic dummy card inserted. These cards could be an add-on modem, NIC/LAN, WiFin even a USB hub or anything else that is PC compatible.

As to whether USB is better than PCMCIA, to my knowledge, USB has a better data transfer speed and to my experience, USB has better radio signals for WiFi. So I guess, USB wins hands down.

Re wireless Internet for interstate travel - honestly no idea, I am across the globe where you are. But as a rule of thumb, if you are getting a subscription with an ISP, then it should be one that provides WiFi Internet in as many states/areas that you intend to travel. Additionally, their coverage (footprint) should be the biggest/widest possible. However, to my understanding, there are a lot of hotspots in most cities.states that do provide free open access through their system.

Incidentally, there are ISPs that provide Internet connectivity using cellphone technology (3G) and presumably, there would be Internet wherever there is a mobile phone signal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
