Hey ****, Depending on your computer model and hardware configuration, you may be able to add an internal USB card to your computer that could provide you with one or more USB ports. These cards typically can range in price anywhere from $10.00 to $30.00, but more expensive models may exist that offer additional features. If you're not quite sure how to install one of these cards (or are unsure if your computer can support one), remember that you can always speak with a sales associate at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Geek Squad® agents should be able to provide you with a number of recommendations based on your computer's current specifications, as well as installation services if desired. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.

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?

Broken Ethernet Port


You say "your Ethernet Port" (= LAN port)
If unavailable try using any USB to rj45 adapter and you can use any USP port.

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?


4 steps to set up your home wireless network
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

Add wireless router to my wired router 4 port (2 free ports) for my 2 laptops


To add wireless to your wired router, you need an Wireless Access point. And when you get it you have to set the MAC address of the router into the Wireless Access point, in order for them to talk to each other. An Access point will probably cost you more than it would if you purchased a new wireless router. I would buy a wireless router, and sell the wired router on Craig's list or something.

Wont connect to wireless network


first, I suggest trying a different USB port. remove the adapter and the icon should disappear, so if the usb port is loose or broken that may be why its acting like that. Plug it into a different port and try it. You may have to reinstall the driver for the next usb port depending on your system
