Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My husband and I share the Gateway - We usually want to use it at the same times. So a friend gave me the Dell. I had already purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse(for use on a tabletop I had but Staples ruined). I don't remember what makes them work, but I want to access the Roadrunner Internet on the Dell and possible use the wireless keyboard and mouse too since they are more convenient. I don't know how to make this all work.


Answers :

The wireless keyboard and mouse must have come with some sort of receieved that is plugged into your Dell. If you can unplug this receiever from the Dell and plug it into the Gateway, it should automatically allow the keyboard and mouse to work.

To get the wireless mouse and keyboard to work, you will need to:
\015\0121: Check wether there's any disk with the mouse and keyboard. If there is one, it contains drivers, and you will need to install these. If there isn't a disk, you won't need any drivers.
\015\0122: Insert the wireless receiver into an USB port on the PC. Preferably on a side that has a line of sight towards the keyboard and mouse, or is as close as possible.
\015\0123: Start the PC and the wireless mouse and keyboard. They may not work immediately, just press the reset buttons on the mouse, keyboard or the receiver, or 2 at a time. They should work after that.
\015\012If not, restart the computer.
\015\012
\015\012Now the internet. If your modem isn't wireless, or you don't have or don't want to purchase a wireless receiver for your internet, you will have to:
\015\0121: Check the modem for a second port that fits an internet cable. If there is one, go to step 2. If there isn't a second port, I'm afraid your going to need to buy another modem, that supports multiple computers.
\015\0122:You will then have to install te drivers for the internet on the Dell. If there are any, you should have them installed on the Gateway too, if there aren't any drivers installed, you won't need them.
\015\0123: Get an internet cable from your local computer store, and connect the modem and computer to each other with it.
\015\0124: The modem may have a password (WPA code). If so, you should be able to view it from the Gateway, or it could be on a sticker on your modem. If you have trouble finding it, please tell me.
\015\0125: Your internet should work now.
\015\012
\015\012If you want wireless internet, and have a wireless modem,you will have to buy a wireless receiver for it. If you don't have a wireless modem, you will have to buy one in order for this to work.
\015\012Any computer store should have some USB receivers. This is what you will need to do:
\015\0121: Install the drivers that came with the receiver on the Dell.
\015\0122: Through the software you just installed, you should be able to view available connections.
\015\0123: Choose your modem from the list.
\015\0124: You may be asked for a password (WPA code). You should be able to view it from the Gateway, or it could be on a sticker on your modem.
\015\0125: Your internet should now work.
\015\012
\015\012If you have any questions, or something doesn't work, please post back, and I will help you as fast as I can.
\015\012Regards,
