Why can't my dell inspiron 530s desktop install


With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers. Hope this helps

Can't connect to internet. Need to have network driver installed. How do you do that when you can't connect to internet?


Use a computer with internet connectivity and download the file from there. Make sure to select the appropriate OS version for the CQ2009F. Save the file to an external drive or optical disc. (A USB flash drive will work well.) Carry the media back to your Compaq computer and then copy it to the hard drive.(This will make the installation go faster than running from some flash drives or the optical disc directly.) Install the driver. Of course the above methods do require you to have the USB or optical drive working.

The original driver is at: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3887062& . This is a Realtek LAN driver.

I hope this helps.

(if both computers have a floppy drive, you might be able to use that. However it depends on the OS, the size of the file gets large with newer OS versions.)

I have an HP Pavilion a1410n desktop PC. We just moved to a new house, and where I want to put the PC I'm having a difficult time getting wired internet access. I want to know if there is anything I can...


hi, you have a couple of options open to you for doing this, you could either buy a wireless receiver card that goes inside your desktop computer and then this will pick up the wireless signal the same as a laptop would once the software that comes with it is installed.

the other option you have open to you and the cheapest one would be to go out and buy a wirelss usb dongle you can buy these from all computer stalls and most shops that sell computer goods, you just plug this into your usb port on the computer and it then scans for all wireless signals the same as your laptop does all you then do is pick your own network and click connect, if you have any passwords protecting your network it will ask you to enter this before you connect, if you are unsure if its protected all you need to do is call your internet service provider and ask them if it has a password and if its secure.

if its not secure you could have your neighbours connecting to your wiresless network so you need to have some sore of protection, you should have been as you all ready use wireless for your laptop.

the best thing for you to do would be to go to a computer hardware store (maplin if you have one where you live) but any store will sell them and just tell them you need a usb dongle so you can connect your desktop computer to your wireless network.
these dongles are cheap to buy and saves you taking the desktop computer apart to insert a wireless card inside your computer so thats the option i would say would be the easiest and cheapest option open to you.

i hope that gives you the info you was looking for.
if you have any problems just give me a shout back

Needing info re updating my Dell Dimension 2400 desktop PC


Are you kidding? 100mbps is about 12.5MBps. That's about 3 average MP3 songs per second.

You are lucky to have such an accommodating neighbor.

Sorry, you just "Wow'd" me. Can I move in next to your neighbor too :-)

As for a dongle, you can easily research your requirements and compare your PC's current limitations on-line against a myriad of available fast plug-in devices. The question you need to ask yourself is, what are the benefits of getting a faster adaptor, and, will you be pushing the bounds of friendship?

Check your neighbors speed and download quota limitations just to be on the safe side.

When i try to connect 2 the internet it says somthing about a network security key or phassphrase


Do you have a Wireless Internet Network. If you do, then go to your modem, and disconnect the power wire and plug out your Wireless Internet Network. Wait for about 10 seconds, then start reconnecting your internet modem and plug in your Wireless Internet Network. Sometimes all 4 green lights will appear.

If it said "network security key" or "passphrase". Then you should buy a USB Flash Drive.
