Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
Hi, we had a power cut the other day. when my pc was turned back on the internet didnt work. i have a wireless connection. spoke to my isp who went thru everything and got me connected but wired not wireless. they said my wireless lan card was faulty. i have looked up some info tonight and i think they meant my pci nic card. i want to fix the problem myself and i'm not sure how to go about it. what card do i have and where should i buy it, is it easy to replace? i have a dell dimension 3100 and i'm in the uk. cheers if you can help, james.
Your nic card could be on board and part of the board which doesn't come out. if so just make sure you have an extra PCI slot on your board and go to a computer place and buy one.
If there is a Walmart over there you can get one there for about $20 or more. Try to make sure that it will install the drivers with your operating system. Other wise if it doesn't come with a cd you may have to download from the net.
this should solve your problem.
you could buy a USB type also. Office supply stores around $40.
