Computer: Dell Optiplex SX280
OS: Win XP Pro
Trying to hook up this computer wireless, have tried a couple of USB wireless units but cannot get them to work. This is a small form tower so not able to add a wireless card.
Computer does have a working ethernet port, what would I need to hook it too to be able to connect wireless to my router?
Thanks Jim

Configure for bridge mode, plug your computer's ethernet cable into it and it just works. I use one in bridge mode at the house as I had to move my shop location awhile back and just did not feel like running any more CAT6. I sell them as entry level routers as well. ($19.99 at Newegg a few times a year).
