    How can I get the desktop windows computer connected to a wireless network?

    What needs to be done to my old windows computer to get connected to a wireless network? Does the old desktop computer have WLAN capability by default?

    To connect a computer to a wireless network the computer needs to have a wireless local area connection adapter built in it. The old windows computer usually does not have this feature built in. To check if your windows computer has this feature or not you need to go into the control panel of the computer. Once in the control panel you need to check for network and internet. If there is an icon showing WLAN, then it means it has wireless feature. If the WLAN icon is not there, to get the computer connected to a wireless network you need to install a wireless network adapter. There are lots of companies providing network adapters, for example Belkin.

    Friend, in order to Connect your System to the Wireless WAN, you System should have in built in it. Other wise you should have it Manually. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet. Check if you have WLAN Icon. If yes, you have Wireless Network adapter. If no you have to install Wireless Network Adapter.

    In order to connect to the wireless from your computer
    you need to have wireless LAN hardware in your PC.
    But in PC it is not custom to built in it.
    You need to get separate hardware from shop and connect and configure it.
    Once you have connected the hardware then install the driver.
    Then connect to the wireless network.

    Hello Friend,

    As we know, Most of the laptops come with wireless capabilities but PC desktops don't. To connect your PC desktop to wireless Internet involves opening your computer and installing a device that can access wireless Internet.

    In order to connect your PC with wireless connection, follow the steps listed below:

    1. Power down your computer and disconnect it from the power source.

    2. Remove any screw holding your computer case in place and open it. Touch the power supply to ground yourself.

    3. Locate PCI slot on your motherboard. It will look like a bar with a slit down the middle.

    4. Remove the metal covering plate from the computer case that corresponds to that PCI slot.

    5. Install the PCI adapter, but take off the antenna before doing so. If you cannot take off the antenna, point it straight out so you can install the adapter correctly. The adapter should fit snugly in the slot.

    6. Reattach the computer case and screws. Plug the computer back in.

    7. Install the network card driver, which should have come on a CD with the PCI adapter. SOme systems will recognize the new device automatically. If yours isn't one of them, insert the CD into your computer's optical drive and follow the onscreen prompts.

    You should now be able to connect to wireless Internet from your PC desktop.
