Specs: Windows xp
My ethernet port on my friend's gateway - the MFATXFTL EL2500S. No documentation anywhere we could find. Can I put a USB wireless ethernet adapter in one of the USB ports - are they 2.0?

Could it be a Gateway E-2500S?

Make sure the ethernet port is enabled in the BIOS. Then make sure the network drivers are installed.

Are you sure that you are connecting on the correct wireless network and filled up the correct domain name>?

Thanks. Yes. I tested the port and it is blown. They had a power surge (lightening nearby) and it blew the wireless radio (we are on wifi out here in the boonies) on the roof and the port. All the rest of the equipment was on protectors. It is cheaper to put in a wireless adapter than put in a new ethernet port, but they don't have the manuals and I couldn't find it on the Gateway website - someone posted a link but that's not the same computer. The ISP replaced the radio and hooked directly to a laptop they have to get them up and running, but I need to connect the desktop and router back up for them.

Well then you should that your self now. It's just like what you have did with your first router.

Thanks to everyone for responding. I picked up a USB wireless device and installed it on my friend's desktop computer, installed a new router and secured the new network and it works great, plus his wife can use her laptop wirelessly now.
