    Many thanks for your comments and suggestions Joed911 you have been very helpful. I must admit i did think about using an external pc card but after some more investigating on the net and reading many forums it seems HP have recalled these laptops and fixed them for nothing or at a reduced cost so i will continue with my corrispondence with HP at the moment and will keep you posted , thanks again

You can purchase a wireless adapter that plugs into the Expres card slot for about $40 . These can be purchased at your local computer store . Less expensive than a new motherboard, and they work quite well. As a matter of fact, I have my on-board wireless turned off and I use a Wireless Belkin adapter.
You can see the adapters here, but you should be able to find them locally:

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Install wireless card wireless network interface controller


The wireless Adapter Card should have come with instructions....
If not, then it is fairly simple if you have the 'driver' CD.
1. Load the driver CD and follow the Instructions to load the drivers.
2. Shut-down the PC.
3. With the Power to the PC OFF, UN-plug the Power-cord to the PC.
4. Insert the Wireless Card into an expansion slot on the motherboard that fits the type of Card you have....DO NOT attempt to 'force' it into a different-slot.
5. Close it up and Plugg it in and power it on.

Note: SOME wireless cards require that the Card be installed BEFORE the drivers.

for more specific details, the make/model of the wireless card is needed.

Can get wireless on my dell gx270


Most desktop computers do not have a wireless card installed.
You need to install a wireless card in the expansion slot and install the wireless driver, then configure this wireless card with your router's wireless settings so it can connect to the wireless router.

I have a wireless card in my Dell Dimension


The first thing I would try would be to reset the card, by removing the cover (if you are comfortable), removing the card from the slot and reinserting in the slot or moving the card to another slot (if there is an identical slot). If that doesn't work, replace the wireless card either with another wireless card or a USB wireless network adapter (external adapter that connects to a USB port). Good luck.

Internet setup


few things you can try:
1. check to make sure you're getting an IP address.
2. try reloading the wireless card driver.
3. is you wireless static or dynamic? If dynamic, try configuring it with static setting.
4. If this don't work, try the wireless card on a different slot.
5. if don't work, try on a different PC to see if wireless card is working or not.
It's possible you have a bad wireless card.
good luck!!

My advent 9115 keeps crashing because something is wrong with the wireless internet card


go into the bios and disable the wireless card - Boot to windows and go into add/remove programs and remove any reference to your wireless card.

If none, through control panel find Device Manager and uninstall the wireless card there. Reboot - Go back into the bios and re-enable the wireless card and then boot back into windows, let windows re-detect the wireless card. Hope that helps...

Wireless PC Cards


You can go into Device Manager (Start -> Run... -> devmgmt.msc)

Open up Network Adapters, if you have a wireless card there will be information on the type of wireless card you have there.

However, if you purchased a laptop computer within the past 2 years or so there is a 99% chance that you have a wireless card.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10005578
You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.
