adding a computer to a wireless network

By mistressvole ·
I have a wireless computer network at home. It is accessible by all computers, no problems, used to connect to the internet but not for file sharing or printer sharing. I have a Dell, the wireless router is Netgear. How do I add a computer to the network? I have tried to follow the instructions offered by my computer (did a search on the same issue) but was thwarted when I got to the part that asked me to select the icon that would show all wireless network options. Am I doing something wrong? Is it possible that my Dell does not have wireless capabilities? How would I check for that?

Search Networks

You need to tell it to search for network in range....

It should be no problem if the wireless card is working properly. Just go to your network connections and tell it to search for wireless signals in range, it should start the search.

After a few seconds it should find your network.... If not there might be a hardware or driver issue with the wireless.
