Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I use a D-Link 200 modem for my broadband connection. For the past two days I have been able to establish a connection to my ISP but can't get onto the net. I called my ISP who had me uninstall and reinstall the modem. Now I find every time I switch my computer back on I have to uninstall the modem and reinstall it otherwise I'm back to my original problem of being connected to the ISP but not being able to get onto the net. Is it my computer or the modem that's causing the problem? I have XP on my computer.

To connect to the Internet, certain hardware and services are needed, which are listed below. Without any one of these items, connection to the Internet is not possible.
  • Broadband Internet Service (also known as Internet Service Providers or ISP) - Telephone companies (also known as DSL, which uses a telephone line) and cable TV companies usually offer Internet service.

  • Broadband Modem - Normally, a broadband modem can be rented or purchased from the ISP.

  • Computer with a Network Adapter - This is usually a device located inside the computer.

  • Broadband Router - A router is used to connect all of your computers to the network (but is not needed for a single computer). The router also provides a way to connect to the Internet through the Broadband Modem.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

hi Shinetray first you will need an internet service provider or isp they are called, you will have to check what ones are available in your area.
Then you will need to sign up for a plan with this company, most isp companies will either supply you with or you can purchase a modem from them with all you need to connect to the net.
Even if you are out in the country area now-a-days there are options available.
Your isp provider will tell you how to connect to the net, i would suggest to go broadband or cable, dial up is out of date now, as most of the net is so slow using it, and this is only used as alternative you can't get a broadband connection when travelling or something similar.
if you require anymore information or this does not help with your asking plesse let me know.

  • you need a phone line that is active for dial up,or non active for naked adsl
  • you need a dial up modem if you want dial up, adsl modem for broadband
  • sign up with an ISP (monthly cost) and obtain user name and password
  • enter user name and password (generaly via ISP cd) into (adsl)modem or setup dial up connection in windows
