Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4300 PC Desktop ?

How easy is it to install a Network Interface Card into a Dell Dimension 4300? Any advice on what make/spec of card to buy?


Answers :

If your PC has USB jacks, you can install a your choice of either wired or wireless network interface cards without as much as touching any tools (except for maybe a razor knife to open the package). If opening the case is something you're not comfortable doing, this may be the easiest way to get network connectivity.

Installing cards is not that difficult, but you need to open the case and determine if there is an open slot available and which type of slot it is. Most modern PCs have PCI slots and a PCI express (or older AGP video card slots). Again, not too hard figure out which type you've got.. search for pictures of slots on google. Look for PCI AGP PCIe and ISA slots so that you might compare them with those inside your PC to determine which type NIC you'll need. Then, buy a NIC that matches the slot and install as per directions.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!
