For a computer to get connected to the internet, it needs to have a network adapter. Network adapters can be a wireless card for wireless connection or an Ethernet card for cabled or local area connection. You may want to check if you dell laptop have a built in wireless or Ethernet card installed.

If you do have an Ethernet card, you then need to get a cable then connect it to a modem. Only then you would be able to connect to the internet.

If you do have a wireless card, you may try to configure a router with wireless capability to connect to the internet.

The last detail that you should have is to make sure you do have broadband connection. If you do not have broadband connection, you may need to go to locations that offer free internet access for you to be able to surf the internet.

If you don’t have a broadband connection like a DSL internet, you can still connect your laptop to the internet using a 3G mobile broadband USB modem. You can connect it to one of the USB ports on your laptop. The early versions of 3G broadband stick supports USB 2.0 and speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps. This is usually not the actual speed you will get from the network.

Normally, it is a lot slower than what is specified on the device. That’s why sometimes the full capacity of the device is wasted because of the speed allotted by the network to its users. If you want to try a 3G broadband dongle, see U600 3G/4G Prepaid USB Stick (Virgin Mobile). It is a mobile broadband USB modem supporting 3G and 4G networks.

It features a rotating USB connector and supports Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. For Windows, it supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. For Mac OS X, it supports Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard, and 10.7 Lion.
