Wireless connectivity is it possible on the EL1352G


Greetings - Looking at the specs of the machine at the E-Machines website it doesn't appear to have any internal slots for a WiFi card upgrade.


However, there are plenty of USB ports available and an inexpensive USB WiFi dongle ($15-20 USD) would work just fine. Doesn't matter which one, as long as it has drivers for Windows 7 (which would be any recent USB WiFi hardware).


Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Yes, you can set up wifi with any computer or laptop. All you need is a USB wifi dongle. Get one online from www.ebay.com or from Fry's or Best Buy or a Radio Shack stores. Get a Chinese one, cheap and as good as any.

How to enable wireless network on targa computer


Harry, If you mean to access WiFI, then all you have to do is buy a WiFi dongle. Install it and then insert the dongle into the USB port. and you are on. But, if you want to run a WIFi hot spot on your PC, then you need to install a wireless router so that other devices having a WiFI capability can connect to it. You need to set up a WireLess LAN for which there exists a wizard in Windows.

Intermittent wi-fi


Most laptops you can just flip them over and open an access panel. Usually just 2 or 3 screws are all that stand in your way. Some laptops like 1000 Model HP's require you to remove the entire plastic panel on the bottom. You will recognize the wireless card inside by two distinct cables that attach to two corners of it. It is usually 1.5 x 1.5 inches big and will have one cable hooked to main and one to auxillary. These cards are available for purchase online if you google internal wireless cards notebook. There may be other types out there but i run into this one almost every time!
