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.

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.


Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.


  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


    You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
    If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
    If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
    If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

    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.

    When router is pluged in modem no internet.when modem is pluged into tower internet is on.


    From what I understand, your router is not working, is it new or did you have it working before your difficulty?
    If it is not new try this, plug you modem into you router and your router into your computer. Pull the power supply plug out of the modem for one minute and them plug it back in. When all of your lights are green and solid, reboot your computer. When it comes back up see if you can get on line. This has worked for me many times. Now if it doesn't help...call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) like comcast, verizon, whomever...and they can take over your machine and correct the setting in a matter of two minutes...You'll save a lot of headaches...And you are paying for the SERVICE, right !
    Good luck, please leave rating, thank you kindly

    No landline


    I don't really understand your question.

    To get online you need an internet service provider and a modem. The Compaqs came with a dial-up modem standard and, and may have an Ethernet network card installed as well, depending on the model. If you get a cable or DSL connection you will be supplied with the necessary modem. Most modems supplied now offer USB connections as well as Ethernet, so if you don't have a network card you probably won't need one.

    Once you have signed up with a service provider, they will give you all the information you need to connect to their service.

    If this doesn't answer your question sufficiently, please post a comment before giving a negative rating and I'll try to give more help.

    you may need to reset router to factory settings. look in documents or their website for instructions that apply to your router.
    Also, I assume you have everything powered off when switching cables.

    How to connect to internet


    If it's a new computer and especially one that is compact then there might not be a modem inside. You can get a USB modem that will plug into a USB port, this will act like an external modem and provide the phone jack. You should be able to get one at your local computer store or Best Buy. Should be about $20 to $30.

    You should try to upgrade to a router. The main differences between a router and a hub is a router has a microcontroller and a hub does not. The router can operate at something called a full duplex which means it can send and receive data at the same time, it will also come with an additional IP address, possibly your internet service provider will only allow a limited number of IP addresses per one line. First unplug another connection and then try your X-box connection.
