If possible take your cpu or tower or the big rectangular box where its written dell on either sides and connect it to a highspeed internet. there is a diference between bandwith and download speed. i need to know your download speed ie kbps..once i know that i shall be able to give you a solution. but for all these you need to trust me! i trust you but do you???? if you just post me a message on this link. i have worked for dell technical support for 3 years, where i was always exploited or misused. but if tomorrow i need to buy 100 computers for my business my first preference would be dell rather then hp, in terms of cost bcoz dell is the cheapest in quality....

I have a 2003 Dell Dimension 4600 and the network adapter is testing fine. However I am unable to access broadband internet and email through a wired USB/Ethernet connection to external modem. Both the...


the hard wired connection to the modem could be a system configuration issue, the cable has gone bad, or the modem is having connectivity issues with the service.
if your optical drives are not working physically, then you can't really fix that. if they just arent responding properly or Windows cant detect that they are there, then you may need to reinstall the driver software for the drives. which can be found on the Dell website or the manufacturer of the optical drives.
yes you can set up a wireless connection with a USB adapter but the modem also needs to have wireless capability in order for you to create the connection.
there are external USB optical drives available. so you can purchase a usb connected CD/DVD drive or burner. they shouldnt be very expensive nowadays.

I have inserted a dial up modem in com1 (only 1 available) windows cant find plug n play device. can i use the ethernet plug to axcess dial up? also only in built speaker work not plug in ones. thanks


Did you make sure the Com1 port was enabled in the BIOS?

And no, you can't use an ethernet card for dial-up.

As for the speakers...double-click the little volume icon on your task bar. Make sure that none of the outputs are muted. That's just my first idea. You may also want to make sure there are no connections off inside the computer going to the speaker jack.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

No, you don't need a card, as long as you have an Ethernet to USB adapter, you should be just fine.

Modem and port


You will normally need the device driver to install the modem. I suggest find the driver and reinstall it as it is not detected as a supported device by windows.

MODEM FRIED, NOW I GET COM1 ERROR WHEN REINSTALLING VIA CD(S)


If it's a separate modem card, replace it.

If it's the built in modem, you'll need replace the mother board.

If you have an extra slot, you might be able to install a cheap add-on modem card which should override the built in. But that's a long shot may not work but worth a try.
