U can hook up using a compact wireless-g usb adapter by linksys sold at electronic stores[the shack] walmart k mart etc.. their cheap and easy to use on sale $15 adv price $29and u dont have to open ur computer up to use plugs into usb port
You need a Wireless Adapter Card. The wireless card plugs into any Available, unused PCI slot. (PCI slots are White in color. They are located inside the computer on the motherboard)

The Dell Optiplex GX260 has Three PCI expansion slots. (And One AGP expansion slot. The AGP slot is longer in length, than the PCI slot's are. It is also not White in color)

This is Dell Support, and the page for the Dell Optiplex GX260 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/sm/index.htm

Here you can click on Computer Cover to see how to open the computer case. You can also view the motherboard to see the location of the PCI slots, that I have made reference to.
(System Board = Motherboard.
Numbers 1, 3, and 4 that are circled, are PCI slots. Number 2 that is circled is an AGP slot. This is where a graphics card plugs in)

You may have the Small Form Factor, Small Desktop, or Small Mini-Tower Computer. This Service Manual will help guide you with hardware identification, no matter which version of Optiplex GX260 you have.

This, is information about an average low profile Wireless Adapter Card. It is not as reference to advertise this website, nor the card's manufacturer,

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
