    Is the wireless switched on? Was this computer ever able to detect a wireless network with this wireless adapter?

    yeah the switch is on.but there is no icon on the bottom right to click for any available connections.Even if i click from network connections from control panel, there is link or a drop menu to view available connections.

    I would have to use the wire from the desktop in order for the dell laptop to connect to the internet. So what youre asking me to do will be the connections from the router not the laptop wifi connections itself because there is nothing at all to connect to.

    You could also use removable media (USB flash drive, CD-RW, etc.) to copy files from one computer to the other.
