Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop ?

Wireless adapter I have a desktop Dell computer and want to adapt it for wireless capability. Should I buy an internal or external adapter? Does speed capability differ?


Answers :

Speed will not differ much , i will mostly depend on your speed coming into the computer.. The external would be easier to set up as you just load the software and plug it into your USB port, given you have a free USB port and the drivers cover the newer USB 2.0 standard. then make sure the wireless is enabled on your dsl or cable modem.
\015\012Note: most dell computers have limmitted space inside to add cards, the USB port is the way to go. ALSO make sure you purchase a usb adapter (NIC) that is the same protocol as your dsl or cable modem. EG: wireless-g or wireless-n
Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
\015\012Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

I have a Compaq Presario F500 laptop that is about 6 months old and the internal wireless card is going out. It takes about 2 hours of restarting before it actually turns green and picks up the signal. I don't see a spot to put in an external wireless card and my computer person says that it's too expensive to repair an internal and I need to get an external. Is the F500 different? Can I use a wireless card that perhaps connects through the USB port?
