For remote access I like to use a free solution from Logmein http://www.logmein.com works really well and is web based. You can also use software installed programs like VNC or tightVNC. The logmein solution is nice because again as said it is free, browser based access (need to install small software on computer attempting to be controlled), and hardly any configuring needs to be done.

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.

Hope that helps.........

My Internet connection so slow?


<p>The type of Internet connection you use is the most important factor in determining your connection speed. The three most common ways to connect to the Internet from home are dial-up, DSL, and cable. If you have a choice, cable is usually the fastest, but both DSL and cable are faster than dial-up. <br /> <p>Many Internet providers also offer Fiber Optic Service (FiOS), which connects to the Internet using light over an optical network. In your home, you still connect your computer through copper wiring. The advantage of FiOS is that it can provide higher speeds than traditional copper wire connections such as DSL or cable. Some Internet providers offer multiple options, depending on the area you are in. More populated areas are more likely to have FiOS available. Check with your phone company or Internet provider for more information.<br /> <p>If you use a dial-up connection, there are a couple of good ways to optimize your Internet speed. First, use the fastest modem you can. The fastest modem you can use will send and receive information at a rate of 56 kilobits per second (Kbps). You won't get a full 56 Kbps speed most of the time, but with a good phone line, you should approach at least 45-50 Kbps. <br /> <p>Second, make sure that your phone line is in good condition. If the telephone wiring in your home or business is old or deteriorating, you might be picking up stray signals or cross talk from other phone lines. These problems will slow your Internet connection because the modem will have to send the same information over and over until it's transmitted without interruption. Check your telephone wires to be sure they aren't damaged, frayed, or twisted around power or other telephone cables. If you notice crackling in your phones, you might want to contact your phone provider to have them check the lines inside and outside your home to make sure they are in good condition.<br />

Will my modem help me connect to internet on my dsi because i have one and i would like to know if i can connect to the internet on my dsi with it


That depends mainly on your modem. If you plug a DSL from the you DSL on the wall to your modem (which, hopefully, is able to use DSL, not Cable), then you can connect it to your computer (which should usually be using Ethernet).

I dont have access to internet am missing the hardwere


Most Internet Service providers do provide the modems necessary to connect to the internet. If you are not using a modem and are using dialup, then you will need to make sure your computer has a dial modem and that you have an active phone line to plug into your computer.

If you would like to use DSL or Cable to connect to the internet, then a call to your ISP will be sufficient and a tech will come to hook up your connection.

assuming you have a wireless router, make sure you have purchased the correct one, as cable and dsl routers are different, as cable modems need to be connected to the router via a cable and dsl normally have a modem that can't be connected to a router, and you will require a modem/router.

You can only share a wireless connection when the line comes directly to the router and not through a pc, as the pc with the connection will have to always be on.

Won't connect to AT&T DSL service


Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.
