Hi,

you need an access point or wireless router. Over here in the UK 802.11a you require a licence for class a devices. However all of the proxim decvices I have used in the past have been A/B/G compliant so you if your particular card is A/B/G compliant then you should be able to get a B/G class access point or router.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards

Nick

    An access point is the device is that allows wireless communication devices to connect to a wireless network.



    You should not be connecting to other peoples networks unless you have their express permission as it is actually illegal in many countries.



    Do you have any sort of connection to the internet? If so the easiest route would be to putchase a wireless router which will be everything in one box to allow you to connect to the internet wirelesly.



    If you need any more helps please let me know



    Regards

    Hi,



    go for an 802.11G cable router and you will be fine.



    Something like this may suite you needs

    Though I would suggest checking with your cable provider to see which they recommend as if you have problems in the future you may get better support from your provider if you are using one of their recommended routers.

External hard disk and pcmcia cardbus


There may not be enough power from the cardbus to run it. That bus is very low current to power it up so you will need the power cord.

Try reinstalled the card drivers.
