My uncle gave me his old dell studio one desktop.

It shows all the nearby wireless networks, including my home network. When i try to connect and type in the correct password to my network, it says it is unable to connect.

Tried troubleshooting, says it could not identify the problem.

Need help!! It's been days, and I have not been able to get it connect once :(

Thanks in advance.

Right click on the wireless network adapter in Control Panel>Device Manager. It may be that the older machine can't recognise some of the more modern routers. If there are options, says, B, G or N, go for B because ther newer versions may be beyond its capability.

If you want faster connections, buy a USB wi-fi dongle or move closer to the router and use an ethernet cable.
