Hi chris - if you're sure it doesn't a ethernet port you have to purchase a NIC card ( Network Interface Card) You can buy these at any computer store for about $15. Make sure you get a 10/100 fast ethernet card. If you need help with how to install let me know and I'll be happy to assist. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. Please don't rate as helpful as it hurts my eatings. If you need more help just add a comment and let me know. Thanks.

Jeff

You need to purchase a PCI ethernet port, available at walmart for $15 or on the web for under $8. Install it into your computer, load the drivers if necessary, and there you go.

Were do I find the WPS button on packard-bell laptop


You don't. The WPS button is on the router. Press it and, when the latop sees the wireless network, it will ask you to enter the pin. The pin is normally writen on the sideor bottom of the router on a sticker.

IS MY PC WIRELESS ENABLED? I JUST BOUGHT A PACKARD BELL UTOW-SAN, HOW DO I FIND OUT IF ITS WIRELESS ENABLED AS MY ROUTER IS WIRELESS. IF NOT WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE IT WIRELESS ENABLED?


You can check your pc if its wireless enabled if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system with the necessary drivers, if you dont have the device, then you have to purchase a wireless adapter from the computer shop and install its device driver in order for it to work. If you have a hardware and have the driver installed, you go to control panel and network connections if you have windows xp, you should configure it to get ip from your router in order for you to get connected to your wireless router, and also you make sure that wireless is enabled on your router when you configure it.

How can i remove the hard drive from my packard bell club 79 computer?I have some pics on there i would like to put on my new pc but the old packard bell no longer connects to the net and as it had win98...


If you have a router with two thernet ports you can connect them together using this.
Otherwise you can take the hard drive out and connect it to your new computer but this can be tricky to do.
The other thing you could do is buy a USB hard disk caddy. Fit you hard drive into this and then connect it to the USB port of your new computer. Make sure the caddy will take your size and type of hard disk.
