You need to make a note of the EXACT make and model of your wireless cardbus adapter.
Then use an internet-capable computer to download drivers for it-from the manufacturer, if you don't already have them, which is what it sounds like. Save these drivers on a disk or USB flash drive or memory stick.
Then transfer those saved drivers to the computer that needs the drivers.
Then type "device manager" in your Windows search area
Then find your cardbus adapter listed and right click on it, and select PROPERTIES
Then click on update driver
When it asks where to look for the driver, browse it to your specified location where you saved the drivers.

You might need to restart.

Hope this helps.

Does this devise pick up internet on laptop or desk top either one


Hi cfisherman8

This is a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Card.

It slots into the large PCMCIA Port that almost all larger laptops and notebooks have.

This device can also work in a Desktop computer but requires a PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter to be installed in the Desktop Computer for it to slot into. There are different types of Desktop PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter. Some types internally connect a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Cardbus to an empty Motherboard PCI Slot and others externally connect a PCMCIA Cardbus to the computer via its USB or Serial Ports. See here for examples:

http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Port-CardBus-PCMCIA-Adapter/dp/B000BMMN7K/ref=sr_1_21?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320335&sr=1-21

http://www.amazon.com/Startech-Cardbus-Adapter-Transfer-115-2kbps/dp/B004WGR6YG/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1316320098&sr=8-12

http://www.amazon.com/Quatech-PCD-X-U142--CardBus-adapter/dp/B001BEF3YC/ref=sr_1_28?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316321566&sr=1-28

Other alternative internal wireless networking devices for Desktop computers include a PCI Wireless Network Card. See example here:

http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Wireless-802-11n-Network-Adapter/dp/B002DYIZ2Q/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320278&sr=1-14


Once installed, it is able to send and receive data wirelessly between the computer and any Wireless Router/Modem to which the computer is configured to connect.

This device is most easily used with a Laptop. An easier solution for a Desktop PC would be a USB Wireless Adapter.

I hope this helps.

My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.

You need a PCMCIA Wireless adaptor, (this model you are getting has two slots that it will fit in) - and you must make sure you have a wireless router in your house to broadcast a wireless signal for it to recieve.
