Hi. My daughters Dell Dimension 3000 (yes its that old) has been working well on wireless USB cards, but every USB slot on the computer has got "sloppy" ie causes intermittent drop out of the network.
As I would like to keep the computer going for a bit I want to install an internal wireless network card. Can someone recommend one or suggest a solution to the sloppy USB wireless dongles.
Which OS are you running?
Rule of thumb is to buy a card from the same manufacturer as the one that makes your router.

Hi - I am using XP SP2.
I have searched for DELL wireless cards - but find it all a bit confusing about which is compatible with or which fits which
You should be able to pick up a PCI 10/100 ethernet adapter that will work for less than $10 at places like Best Buy, Circuit City, Frey's, Walmart, Office Depot, Office Max, etc.
