Wireless Card will not fit in slot

I have a Presario 22oo and needed a new network card. I purchased a LINKSYS Dual Band Wireless-N Notebook adapter that does not seem to want to slide all the way into the notebook. How do I check to see if the pins are lined up?

Thanks so much...

First, make sure that the type of card that you bought is compatible with the slot. Your presario can use Type I or II standard PC or PCMCIA cards. If the linksys adapter that you bought is not a PC/PCMCIA card, rather an ExpressCard, it really won't fit.

Is there any way to connect to wireless internet with this kind of computer or whether need to other hardware .thank you.best regards.


The easiest way to connect to a wireless internet connection is to purchase a wireless networking card that fits in the PCMCIA slot. I would recommend a Linksys Adapter (WPC54G).

How can i get wireless internet connection,with hp pavilion ze4400 notebook?


You can either get an expansion card for the PMCIA card slot for your wireless or a wireless USB adapter. Make sure the adapter you get is compatible with the wireless band your wireless access point is using (b/g/n).

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Wireless adapter not functioning-


Do the following :
  1. Turn Laptop off, then disconnect adapter and remove battery. Re assemble and restart.
  2. Try clicking the button activating the wireless card.
  3. Reinstall wireless card drivers, select drivers from Compaq Presario V6205NR Notebook PC
  4. If all that did not work, then the internal adapter is faulty. Buy an external wlan adapter:WLAN Adapter WL-167G-£12.90 new

Has An Acer Travelmate 243LC laptop got a build-in Wireless?


The link below will take you to a page on the Acer Web site that shows the specs for this laptop. According to the specs, this laptop does not come with onboard wireless (if this feature were part of the system, it would be listed in the specs). Also, you can check Device Manager to see if you have a Wireless Adapter listed under Network Adapters. If you don't see any type of Wireless adapter listed then you'll definitely know that your laptop doesn't have it built in.

To access Device Manager:
Right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Manage
In the left navigation pane, click Device Manager.
In the larger window, scroll down the list to Network Adapters.
Expand the Network Adapters tree to see the installed adapters.

http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/html/tm243lc_specs.html

However, the specs do show that this laptop has 2 PC Card slots. These slots give you at least a couple of options for connecting to the Internet. You can buy an Air Card that is installed in one of the PC Card slots when you want to use it to access the Internet. My company used to provide Air Cards for laptop users through AT&T. The advantage is that you have an uninterrupted connection to the Internet no matter your location.

You can also buy a WiFi card that fits into a PC Card slot. This card will be your Wireless NIC (adapter) providing you with the means to set up connections to wireless networks. Linksys is a pretty good brand and fairly easy to install and support. After installation and configuration, you can pop the card in your PC Card slot anytime you want to connect to a Wireless network then remove it when it's no longer needed.

I hope this helps you connect wirelessly using your laptop. Please rate this solution and thanks for using Fixya.

you need to buy a pcima card if there is a slot on the side of that laptop to fit it. if not but it does have a usb port you can purchase a wireless stick... that plugs into the usb port. very compact, about the size of a usb flash drive.

Installing a wireless card in my presario 2200


The easyest way would be to buy a USB wireless adapter.
You just plug it in install the software and thats it.

I'm useing a TPLINK USB adapter, it cost me 20 €

You can also use a internal card, Mini pci most likely. very simple to install also but you might have signal - antenna problems. But this tplink has worked very well in my home and in the city.
