Sure is!

Intel's cards and software is pretty easy... but Compaq/HP and others also have their own software for doing this.

The only real question here is; can your switch support adapter teaming/link aggregation?

All the Cisco gear I work with (and have at home) will do adapter teaming... giving two network cards a theoretical bandwidth of 200mbit, or just having a redundant link.

So to answer your question 100% accurately: Yes. You can. =-]

Connecting a tp link wireless usb adapter to xbox 360


It is not possible to use generic usb wireless adapters with the Xbox or Xbox 360 game console. By 8246b47.jpgJohn Anderson Jun 20, 2012
The post John Anderson is correct that this would not work with a XBOX device. These are intended for and installed on computers (laptop or desktop) with which you would need to install drivers for it on. There is supported drivers that will allow the installation of this device into either a XBOX or PlayStation gaming console.

I have recently done a master reset on my desk top pc and it has wiped of my network adapters how do i get it back because my braodband will not work?


If you don't have a back up of the NIC driver a possible solution is to use another pc/laptop that has a working broadband connection in order to download the correct driver from the manufacturer's website and then transfer the driver executable or zip file via USB drive or CD-R back to your desktop pc. Did your desktop come with a manufacturer restore disc as sometimes you can update the driver from the device manager in the control panel by right clicking on the network adaptor and selecting the update driver software option and point it to search the manufacturers disc including all sub directories. Good luck.

Installing NIC card to dell optiplex gx100


NICs usually come in PCI interfaces. motherboards have usually four PCI slots to hold many devices such as NIC. just slide the card and fit it into the PCI slot. It could take any of the slots where it fits. the OS will detect it and loads the necessary drivers.

Can not connect to internet


My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0
DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address: 192.168.0.10
Gateway address: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4

At&t usbconnect mercury


It is remotely possible but will be very complicated. You will have to leave the computer with the Mercury powered up all the time and use internet connection sharing to provide access to the other computers. But also you will need to reconfigure your router as a dumb switch since your PC will now be the DHCP server. In short it's not easy and not practical - but it is possible.

Belkin G+ Desktop Card


something you have done has stopped the hard disk drive from working.

first check all the internal connections between the hard disk drive and mother board and hard drive and power supply.

Wiggle them around and make sure they are in straight.

then check you didnt drop any screws etc inside the pc and these are shorting something out

you need to check that the ribbon cables that connect your hard disk drive werent damaged when you fitted the wireless card


then i think you need some help

confirm that the pc can boot from a floppy or cd
you might need to change the bios settings first

you need to check all the bios settings if there is any chance that you might have changed them accidently



you need to check that the power supply is working correctly (unlikely)

i wouldnt expect that it is the card that caused the problem

then i would consider the possiblity that there was a virus on the installation disk (unlikely)

then i might wonder if coincidently the hard disk drive failed at that time.
