How To Connect To Internet With Desktop That Has No Wifi ?

How would i connect to the internet with an older desktop that has no wifi? I fixed my dimension 4600, it's older and as far as i know, does not have wifi capability. I would like to connect this computer to the internet but all i have is a wireless network in my house. Is there some sort of part i can buy that can make that happen? Because nowadays you can't do all that much on a computer without internet. Answer:-
You are correct. Your dimension 4600 doesn't have wifi capabilities. Does it not have an ethernet connection? A place to insert an ethernet cable? You could plug an ethernet cable into your computer and connect the other end to your wireless router. You state, "all i have is a wireless network"; usually wireless access points have ports in the rear where you can plug ethernet cables. If not, or if no ethernet in the computer. Buy a wireless network adapter that is compatible with the operating system you are using. If there are ports in the rear of the wireless access point, you could also install in your computer a network card with an ethernet connection. Either way, those are your two options. The reason i emphasized the statement about your operating system, is that if you are running windows 2000, it may be a little more difficult to find a network adapter; after all, it's all about xp, vista, and win 7 now-a-days. One last thought, and i'm mentioning this since you state your desktop is older. You can get network adapters that are usb; be sure if you decide to use usb that your computer has usb 2. 0. If it has 1. 0 or 1. 1, check that the usb adapter you are going to purchase will work with it.

Connect Wifi Printer

How to connect wifi printer? I got a wireless printer last week. I successful connected it to the pc and it works perfectly normal. However, i have laptop also and i wish i could print using the laptop also. I installed the printer's software on the laptop and it seemed as if everything would work- but it did not! When i go to control panel, it showed me the printer's brand (hp), which means that the laptop obviously recognizes the printer. However, when i go to printer's status, it is offline. How can i change the status? I'd be grateful if you told me what to do in steps! By the way, i've got a router also but i think it has nothing to do with that, or am i wrong?

Answer:- if the printer is connected to the router (wireless i presume) with a network cable, then you should be able to print to it with your laptop thru the router using the assigned network address of the printer, but you'll need to setup the network settings in the printer setup on your laptop. If the printer is attached to another computer, and that computer is attached to the router (again presuming it's wireless), then you'll need to setup print sharing on that computer, and it will always need to be on in order to print, as well as the shared properties on your laptop. You can also setup the printer to be physically attached to one computer and wirelessly to your laptop using what is referred to as "ad-hoc" wireless setup. All of these are options, but i don't know how you are setup.

Can't Connect To Wifi

I just got a new laptop with windows 7 and it works perfectly when im using a home connection that requires a password. But any public wifi i cannot connect. The locations do have connection, i just seem to be the only one who cant access it, like at school where my classmates can access it but i cant. It shows that i am connected but it says that i have limited connectivity and doesn't let me access the internet at all. I even disabled the firewall to see if that was the problem but i can't figure out what to do.

How Do I Connect Ps3 Through Wifi?

Answer:- you need to have the password to the network if you have a password. 1. Go to settings

2. Scroll down to network settings

3. Click internet connection settings

4. Click easy or custom. I prefer easy. 5. Click wireless

6. Click scan

7. Select your wifi network and select a security type. Most new routers come with wpa/wpa2 but older ones come with wep or none. None isn't recommended. 8. Type your password. 9. If it's successful, it will return you to the network settings page. To test it, go to internet connection test. Ps you will know if you are connected to the network because a small green light will glow (by your hdd indicator) and this will blink when you are accessing the network.

Connect Blackberry To Virgin Wifi

I scan for networks on my blackberry (curve 8900) and click on my virgin internet - it then provides a code and says, enter this pin into your wireless router. I am not sure on where to enter this code?

I found that i may need to enter my ip address into a web browser? When i do so it goes onto a website called d-link and it asks for my user name and password. Im assuming this is my router user name and password? If so how do i know this, because i have searched and searched and do not have a clue where it is.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Will Not Connect To Wifi

I just recently had a new dell inspiron that my school provided to me and my class. The problem is i can't get my laptop to connect to my open wireless network. I asked my friends if they had the same problem and they didn't. They said once their wifi was on, the laptop automatically connected to it, except for me. My wireless network is visible in network connections and is the first one with "automatic" and a star next to it in wireless network connection. I click the 'connect' button and a pop-up says:

Please wait while windows connects to the "my wireless network" network. Waiting for the network. With a green status bar. After about two mins, it'll just disappear! I don't get any notification of some sort and goes back to where i started. I try to "repair the connection" and when i do, i get a pop-up from the task bar saying "unable to connect to wireless network". I do not know if it's the laptop or the wireless network. I connected laptops with my wifi before and there were no problems. I tried turning on & off the wifi switch, rebooting, i'm just so lost.

Laptop Wont Connect To Wifi Hotspots

Why wont my laptop wont connect to wi-fi hotspots? I recently bought a toshiba laptop which uses windows 7. At home, i use a netgear wireless router and my computer has no problem connecting to it. The same goes for when i'm at my dad's house, and he uses a linksys router. However, whenever i try to use the wireless internet in a place such as starbucks or mcdonald's, etc, the icon in the lower left hand corner of the screen shows that "networks are available", but when i try to connect, it says "windows is unable to connect to the network". Just wondering what the problem is. Maybe i need to install a driver or something? I'm not very computer savvy, so there may be a simple solution.

Internet Explorer Doesn't Connect To Internet

My internet explorer doesn't connect to internet?

Answer:- nowhere near enough information to give any meaningful suggestions beyond, "have you tried turning it off and on again?" Try it with both computer and modem/router. Other information you could've included would be:

Do other browsers work on the same computer? Operating system? Ie version? Has this always happened, or is it something that's just started happening?

Laptop With Wireless Usb Doesn't Connect To Wifi Connection

Why doesn't my laptop with a wireless usb drive connect to my wifi connection? Since my laptop doesn't have a wireless card, i got a wireless usb for it.

Nothings wrong with the usb and it is compatible with my wifi so whats wrong?
