I have ordered mine and am impatient so do not wish to re-order with wireless, as I am sure I can do this from the PC somehow?

TIA

Is it wireless enabled?

otherwise you can buy a wireless card for a laptop, or a wireless reciever for a pc and install that.

are you meaning wireless for internet? And you have jsut ordered a pc?
It's probably already got wireless built in, jsut about every pc has now.

I shall need a wireless receiver.

My laptop has a card to enable it bit when


I ordered from Dell and therer is a litgtle list of things things you have to add on yourself....modem etc...

I forgot the wireless.

So is a wireless receiver a USB2 cable?

chopster Mon 02-Jul-07 17:29:31

No, you want a wireless router/modem if you don't already have one, then you will be ready to go.
a usb2 cable is a wire.

something like this is what you need, assuming you don't already have it. That plugs into your phone socket, then allows you to connect to the internet wirelessly.

Oh I have that exact one...so I just plug this into my new PC?

to recieve wireless on your pc you will need a wireless reciever, unless the router is near the pc so can be plugged in.

if you want wireless, and your new pc is wireless ennabled, then you plug that into your phone socket then your pc wirelessly connects to that. I have that one, and would recommend it, but you might want to shop around.
