Extend your PCs wireless network range


This is a simple trick to increase the range of your wireless home network. You will need a USB network card, a salad bowl and aluminum foil or a metal bowl, 2 rulers or other plastic or wooden rods, some tape, and a USB extension cord.
1. If using a metal bowl, you're already set. If using a plastic or glass bowl, wrap the inside with the aluminum foil.
2. Tape the rulers or other form of extension rods you are using to opposing sides of the rim of the bowl so that when looking down on it they will touch above the center of the the bowl.
3. Tape the wireless USB card between the rulers and position it so the USB plug is facing away from the bowl.
4. Plug the USB extension cable into the card and plug the other end into your computer.
5. Position your crude USB antenna in the direction of the wireless rounter for best signal.
6. With the antenna facing the wireless router or access point, you can reposition the USB card at the end of the rulers moving it closer or farther away while watching the signal strength of the network on your PC until the maximum signal is achieved. When you achieve maximum signal secure the wireless USB card in that position.

Will Dell Inspiron laptops pick up 802.11 wireless network?


I'd get the N-wireless card. It makes your signal much stronger, you pick up more signals, and you have less interruption. You won't get to see the full benefits without an N wireless router, but you will still notice an increase with a G router. I have an N wireless USB adapter hooked up to my desktop right now and I get 1-2 extra bars than I do with my laptop in the same spot (which has a G wireless card).

Daughter gave me encore 802.11 wireless lan pc card. can't find the disk to install driver. how do I install on my lap top


you would have to find the encore manufacturers website and download the driver from there ( if they have gone belly up then you will have to go to www.driverguide.com and find it on there and install it.

If not then it would be a lot easier to get a new wireless card by linksys or netgear or draytek if they do one ( preferably PCI if this is a desktop or PCMCIA if its a laptop )

USB dongles arent that great for wireless - they work but not as good as a PCI or PCMCIA one will.

Internet keeps defaulting to dialup connection vs. wireless


Go to Control panel > Internet Options> Connections tab >
check the "never dial a connection" bullet. Click ok.
Then you should be able to get online with that frustrating window.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wireless adabter


Is there a switch on the side of front of the machine to turn off the wireless? Make sure it is set to on. They put a switch there so that you can turn off the wireless to use the system on a plan or anywhere where wireless is forbiden.
