You need to get a PCI Wireless card or a USB Wireless adapter, if you are talking about an 802.11 wireless router.

If you are talking about Sprint wireless Broadband or the link (WWAN service) you'll need a USB WWAN adapter which are available by all major Wireless vendors (Verizon, Sprint, ATT etc(

Dell dimension 5100 will not boot, numbers 2 and 4 illuminated on front panel


According to the manual this indicates a possible failure of the graphics card. The solutions from your manual: • If the computer has a graphics card, remove the
card, reinstall it (see page 71), and then restart
the computer.
• If the problem still exists, install a graphics card
that you know works and restart the computer.
• If the problem persists or the computer has
integrated graphics, contact Dell (see page 116).

The manual is available as a PDF at:

I hope this helps.

Adding Dell Dimension 4600 to existing wireless network?...


Go to Staples and purchase a Linksys USB wireless-G (only G needed - the new "N" protocol is overkill) adapter (~$60.00). Insert the Linksys CD and follow the instructions. When prompted, plug the USB adapter into the Dell (frt or back) doesn't matter. If his "roomies" have security enabled on their router, you'll need to know the level, password/passphrase, and the network name that they assigned.
Good luck.

Dell Dimension DE051:Wireless Internet Problem (Can't Load Sites)


contact Comcast and have them reset your IP address. also have them ping your modem after they reset IP.
Also, see Linksys website for LELA (easylink advisor) to add devices to network. Uses a good bit of memory so don't allow to run automatically at start up.

Power supply ?


I'd recommend purchasing a new power supply.

Your Dell Dimension 5100 comes stock with a 305W power supply. This is a bare-minimum wattage that will only handle what they ship on the system & not much more. You're better off upgrading the power supply with a compatible after-market model.

You can go to a PC parts store in your area and take your chances...but they're usually more expensive then Internet sources (they've got to pay for their brick-n-mortar store overhead).

Here's a link for a very inexpensive replacement 400W power supply for your Dell Dimension 5100:

http://www.affordablesurplus.com/dell-5100-5150-power-supply.asp

This particular site offers $8 Flat-rate shipping & a 1 year warranty. Your power supply is only $49.99 - you might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere, but that's the best I could find with a quick Google search.

If my answer helped you, please provide feedback :-)

Good luck!

Dell Dimension 5100 Won't start up


Hi

First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.

To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.

If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147

Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.
