Check up the following link ( http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xPF-Compaq-Armada-E500-174519-031 ), the model does not have any inbuilt wireless card. however you can purchase a USB wireless LAN card. Install the drivers first fron the utility CD you get along with this and then plug in the hardware. you might have to restart your system depending upon the OS platform you are using.

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.

I can't understand how your computer even works with only 64Megs. of RAM.
Look at the system requirements on the wireless. It will tell you the min. required memory for your device.
Hope this has helped you.

Armada m3000 screen


you can mess around and try to fix it but on those old machines its really not worth it(I own 5 of these).Might I suggest the Armada M700 or the E500--e500 is what im on now and it runs better than a brand new dell or compaq)you might get a new screen on ebay for about 40 bucks. It might be a better idea to buy a new one and save the parts from your old one. You can get a new one for 70 bucks on ebay.

Cannot obtain internet


if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.

Internet


There are some pre-paid available but I would suggest using a wireless card and "grabbing" the internet connection from available wi-fi hot-spots in your city or neighborhood.

In my area 3 of us leave our wireless open for people to use.

Many Libraries have free wireless connections as do Panera Bread, Hotels, and restaurants,(McDonalds, Arby's, etc.)

Network card


Any type of PCMCIA network card should work okay.
Go down to Staples, Best Buy or Office Depot and find
a decent PCMCIA network card.  You should be able to find
one for under $50
