Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop ?

Can I access the internet wirelessly with a desktop pc?

\015 I already have a pc with high speed cable internet service and a laptop with a wireless router. Can I add a new desktop pc (Dell GX280) to the internet service with just a wireless internet card?\015

Answers :

Than yes you just get a wifi card (i suggest a usb) for your desk top . If you have security on your router (WEP, WPA2) you will need to know that password.
Theoretically, yes. you'll just need to install the correct driver on the dell and know what you're doing when you install the wifi card.
