Do you have a wireless network? A wireless network is provided by a wireless router or modem. Who is your internet service provider? If your computer has a usb port, you can use a usb printer cable to connect your printer. You can get one at any stationery store or convenience store for about $10.00. You can also get a wireless adapter card that plugs into a usb port on your computer for about $50.00 at an electronics store such as Frys or Best Buy. What model is your Dell computer and what is your operating system?
