Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Own a Dell laptop without wifi or wireless capabilities. Don't want wireless on this Dell (home pc). Now own a 2nd laptop (work pc) - a Sony that has wireless. I have a wireless router, and would like to set up the Linksys using the Dell non-wireless laptop, but don't seem to be able to utilize it to set up the wireless system. I am not able to install software due to admin lock on the Sony laptop. what to do? I hope this makes sense.

Most desktops don't come with a wireless card installed in them. Most desktops work off the ethernet cable that you plug into it to get internet access.

Help me to connect 2 dell computers with cables


The easiest method of connecting any computers is to use a router which will also provide a DHCP server component to serve up local TCPIP addresses to each connected computer.

To connect to the router you would need standard ethernet cables which are available widely and which would plug into the network port of the computer and the other end into the port on the router. You need one cable for each computer to router connection.

If you have computers with WiFi / wireless capability, then you would need a wireless router and could then connect without the need for cables.

Take a look at the Practically Networked web site which has revies of various types of routers and also provides tutorials on networking and other related subjects which would help you.

Is Sony Vaio PCV 6603 wireless enabled to connect to net via router?? If it isn't, is it possible to "upgrade" it to be wireless enabled?


It may be wireless enabled. Even if it isn't, then you may install wireless NIC (network interface card) that will help to retrieve the wireless signals.

My Dell wifi card supports a/g/n protocols will it support the protocol b? What is the possible range of the dell wifi mini card 1515 - N wireless card?


The dell wifi mini card 1515 does support 802.11b. 
The range can vary greatly. Think of it this way a single level small house works well with A and B. A large multi level home works well with G and N.

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

hi klb19,
how far are you from the router? have you tried using your sons computer near your area? is your laptop wifi capable?

click start,run and type in "services.msc" without quotes
look for wireless zero configuration and see if the status is started,if not, right click on it and select start,

right click your wireless icon at the lower right corner of your desktop and select view wireless connections. did it work?

let me know if it works. :)
