Just make sure your laptop has either built-in wireless already (what is the make and model?) or you'll need to buy a wireless adapter (usually a PCMCIA or USB). They are easy to hook up generally speaking. We're here to help with that if the instructions aren't clear enough for you.

    Absolutely. It would be best to bring your fully charged laptop with you to make sure you get exactly what you need. What is the make and model?

    This explains how to connect a Latitude 100L (I didn't see anything for a C ). To see if you already have wireless built in, right click My Computer, Properites, choose the Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Under Network adapters click the + sign and see if you have anything that says Wireless Adapter. If you see it, you're in business and only need a wireless router.

    It means you have wireless capabilities. All you need now is the wireless router to send out a signal that your wireless card will pick up. Right click the mini card and see if it says enabled or disabled. Let me know.

New download of windows 7 won't retain or create internet connectins


Ok, this is conflicting... won't retain or create!! Doesn't it have to be created to retain it?

Did it connect before you downloaded windows 7? Exactly what happens when you try to get on the internet? Do you have the wireless switch on the laptop turned on? Do you see your wireless router? If so did you put the password in correctly? If not, it will never connect.

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.
