Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.

Can I use a wireless router connected to a PC to access my wireless network?


Yes you can.

Your high speed internet modem connects to the first ethernet jack on the rear of the router and your desktop PC to the second jack.

Folow the installation instructions that were packed with your router. Install the CD when prompted. The setup program will guide you through connecting to the internet through your router and enabling the wireless capabilities of the router to access your networked computers.

If you determine that this information was of assistance to you, please rate me on the FixYa website.

Do I need a modem to connet my wireless acer aspire one to the high speed connection I have at home?


What you need is a wireless router. Your high speed internet connection at home might have a wireless router built into it, but some don't. What kind of internet connection do you have? what's the model of the modem you have. If you're not sure, just list the model numbers of all of the devices you have running.

Bought a toshiba satel laptop and want to router it to dell dimen


You don't need a router for the laptop it has a wireless card in it already, buy a router for your home PC and I would buy a linksys with cap 5 network cables and wireless connections so you can use the printer off of the home computer PC. If you have high speed Internet you can request for a router for free with a wireless and cap 5-cable capacity.

No Active Internet Connection


If you want to use the wireless portion of your router, you would need a wireless adapter installed on your desktop. If you are getting internet on your desktop then this means that your wired connection is fine to the router is fine. The WMP54G adapter will work with your router, however if you are not planning on connecting to the internet wirelessly through the router then there is no need to purchase the adapter. Hope that this helps you out.

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.
