I use pc with os windows xp. In network connections, I don't find wireless network connections but only LAN. Can you please help me understand how to setup wireless network without any ethernet card or CD ROM so that I could proceed on to connect wifi from pc to other devices.

THANK YOU! :cool:

Do you have/use a wireless router to connect any other computer/s to the internet http://www.amazon.co...router/products

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

For a computer to be wifi capable it needs to have what is called a wireless or NIC device, many older notebook computers had this capability built in but very few desktop computers did.

I may be wrong but as you have XP installed as an operating system it suggests that the computer is quite old and so if it is a desktop computer to be able to connect to other devices such as a wireless printer you will need to obtain either a wireless card or USB dongle.

Examples of each http://www.amazon.co...d/dp/B000VK9BZE and http://www.amazon.co...dongle/products

If your machine is a laptop that is so old that it does not have onboard wireless it should have a PCMCIA slot to which you can insert one of these....


Are you saying that your machine does not even have a cdrom drive?
