    Thanks for this. My next problem is when I try to access a web page I get a 401 error message saying authorisation is required please type in user name and password. Not sure which user name and password they mean. Is this to do with the wireless adaptor.

Hi
You'd need to buy an adapter such as this one. It's plug and play so no software would be required. There are cheaper ones available if you search for 'usb ethernet adaptor' but I chose that one as you can buy it directly from amazon. Obviously you will need a free usb port to make this work! I think tThe adaptor I suggested will only work with windows 2000, xp and vista.

Hope this helps.
Philip

    Does this happen on every webpage?

    The reason I'm asking these questions is because the 401 error, as you said, is to do with having to log in.

    If you go to start>>>run then type 'cmd' hit enter and in the box that comes up type 'ping www.yahoo.com' what messages come up? If pinging yahoo works succesfully then it tells me that your internet connection is working, there's just a problem with access.

Will a PC support 3 Ethernet cards


If it has enough slots it will. But if you need that many ethernet ports then buy an Ethernet switch box instead, it will be cheaper, easier and you can get anything from 4 ports to over 40 your choice.

You can buy a pci ethernet card/ network adapter pci . Installation would be opening your computer and insertig it to an available pci slot. If you have usb ports then you can buy a usb to lan device. Here are the picturesa1679da.jpg132f824.jpg

You don't buy an ethernet port, you buy a new PCI LAN card hat you can find in every IT shop for $10.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

No ethernet port on older Dell desktop


Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.

You need to purchase a PCI ethernet port, available at walmart for $15 or on the web for under $8. Install it into your computer, load the drivers if necessary, and there you go.

Computer needs ethernet card for highspeed internet


It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.

Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.

I'm posting a link to a DLink adapter as an example *only.* There are other brand names out there that would probably do just as well.

Hope this helps!
