Can you clarify that for me?  Do you want to add wireless to a desktop, or a laptop?  If "yes" ,what is the model of the system you want to install a wireless card in?

It sounds like he wants to put it in a Dell Dimension 2350. The computer has three PCI slots, so the card will work unless all three slots are being used.

I meant that I used a laptop to detect the signal strength, and found it weak.

 

The PC is a DELL Dimension 2350 Desk Top and I did not find any verified documentation informations

regarding the use of PCI wireless adapters.

 

So I was not really sure this would actually work, . . but I guess the real test will be installing it.

 

I'll tryit, my present Dialup connection speed is 36 kbps

 

Anyway, Thanks much for your time and efforts.

 

Best Regards

Well, teach me to read better.  Please.

 

Should work OK.  I think another topic in these forums concerned the same wireless card.  I will see if I can find it.

Hello Dp

 

Thank you, for your previous, there is one other question that concerns my Dial Up connection, . . 

 

the line that goes from the telephone land line to the back of the tower and is the ISP connection line, . .

 

I use a regular telephone connection line and have not found any information that actually states that

 

this is incorrect,  or that a special line is necessary, however I also believe that I have crossed inf. somewhere that may have indicated otherwise, . .

 

Will appreciate your comment on this.
