Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Dell dimension 2400, wireless internet

\015 I need to connect my dell dimension 2400 PC desktop to my wireless internet connection. I have a my macbook pro connected to the wireless internet and it works fine. I'm using an airport that is connected to my modem. The modem has four slots to plug in more that one internet connection, but will not connect my pc, and laptop at the same time. So is there a way to plug both into my modem at the same time and use the internet on both computers. Or is there a way for my Dell to connect wirelessly and use the airport?\015

Hi Whitney,
\015\012I was able to locate manual and a troubleshooting guide.
  1. Manual

  3. Troubleshooting Guide
\015\012Summary: Your modem only supports 802.11b standard, which limits the\015\012throughput to max. 11Mbps (compare to 802.11g = 54Mbps, 802.11n = 108\015\012Mbps). In other words: your connection is only about 10% of the speed\015\012compared to a wired connection via Ethernet cable (100 Mbps). So - if\015\012you can - you should try to use a wired instead of a wireless\015\012connection, but you have to decide what makes is more important to you:\015\012having no cable and you can be away from the modem or the connection\015\012speed.
\015\012This also means - and that is in regards to APremkumar's solution -\015\012that you can skip all 802.11n adapters (this would just be a waste of\015\012money). Since you will not find an adapter that only connects to a\015\012class b network, look for something like "802.11b/g".
\015\012An example page is here.\015\012You can choose between an internal (PCI card) or external (USB adapter)\015\012solution. Both are ok and the decision depends on the availablity of a\015\012free USB port on your Dell and your comfort of opening the computer\015\012case or not. (You can always come back here and ask for help;-)
\015\012If you have any more questions, please let me know - I'm happy to help!
\015\012If you want the Dell Computer to connect wirelessly you have to install wireless card on your computer.\015\012
