Use wifi on hp 1730 desktop

Most desktop PCs do not come with integrated wifi. Thus, in order to use wifi on these devices, you must purchase an wifi adapter for the device. This can be in the form of an expansion card installed internal to the device (assuming there is space to do so) or by using an external, USB dongle-style adapter (easier by far). Once you purchase the adapter, simply follow the installation instructions to install the hardware and load the driver software.

I have a dell dimension 3100 desktop, and just purchased a fivespot mobile broadband wireless device. Can I get a wifi connection (without connecting the device directly to my tower?

No, your desktop doesn't have a wifi card. You will have to either buy one and install it or connect the Verizon dongle directly with an USB cable.

3network mobile dongle wont work

Three options:
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.

How to enable wireless network on targa computer

Harry, If you mean to access WiFI, then all you have to do is buy a WiFi dongle. Install it and then insert the dongle into the USB port. and you are on. But, if you want to run a WIFi hot spot on your PC, then you need to install a wireless router so that other devices having a WiFI capability can connect to it. You need to set up a WireLess LAN for which there exists a wizard in Windows.
