My 3083 is not wlan (wifi) enabled. What do I need to adapt it so that it is compatable with my D-Link router. All suggestions welcome. Thank you.

Have you checked services to make sure WLAN is set to automatic.

If it has no wireless card you would need a wireless dongle that fits into your usb port.You should be able to pick one up for about £10.

holding down the blue "Fn" button at the bottom left of keyboard then pressing "F10" - it should have a little green wireless light glows up on the bottom of the computer by the charging icon etc.

Try that if you have those keys on the Laptop.

Now I am not up to date with routers etc but found this on on Amazon for £9 but not sure if it is the correct one for you.Best waiting until someone can give you the advice that you need.

I would only use that if you cannot find any wireless connection on your computer.
