2 Answers

Connecting wireless Can a Compaq Armada 1700 connect to the internet with out dial up. When I try to connect to the internet the Welcome to the Internet Connection Wizard comes up. I have three choices two are dial up options the third is I want to set up my internet connection manually. I select the manual. The next screen asks how I want to connect, two choices are given phone line with modem or connect through a local area network. I am not connecting to a phone line, so I select through a local area network. The next screen asks to automatic discovery of proxy server, use automatic configuration script(then I have to enter an address) or manual proxy server. I tried automatic and it did not connect. So I tried manual and the next screen asks the name of the proxy to use and port. How do I find this information to enter for the HTTP:, the Secure:, the FTP, the Gopher, Socks:

By looking at the typical specs on the computer, I dont see a way unless you upgrade the laptop. It seems very old and as my personal opinion wouldnt do good on a high speed connection. It seems your computer only has a 56k modem (typical phone line jack).

I've had a plethora of problems with my armada 1750 (I know this is not the same model, but it's close) one of which was getting it connected to my wireless network. 
The primary problem I was having was the fact that it has a 4 gig HD, so I wanted to put the smallest windows OS possible while still being able to effectively use the internet (this was a nice idea in theory, but became my problem). 
The card I'm using is a linksys WPC55AG:  http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US/Layout&cid=1115416827328&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper

I'm going to wager that this will work for you as well.  The problem however, is that I could not for the life of me get the software it comes with to detect wireless networks, to connect to my network *while using windows 98*.  
I'm not sure of the hard drive space you have, but the solution for me was to install windowsXP with service pack 2, which has greater capabilities in detecting wireless networks.  Now, with XP+SP2 installed, I'm just under 2 gig (1.8 or so).  
I only use this to browse the web, so it suits my purposes just fine, I hope this helps you!

How can i connect a wireless internet connection with a compaq armada E500


Get a PCMCIA to USB2 adapter that has an external 5 Volt connection to it to supply the higher current for the wireless adapter. The power can come from the USB via USB adapter cable
After installing the adapter, the USB wireless device should be installed just like in any later notebook. The wireless device requires USB2 and high power. and won't work off a powered hub.
