Boost PCMCIA Wifi Card Range

I own a IBM ThinkPad T20 that doesn't have the built-in WiFi like todays laptops. I have a LinkSys Instant Wireless Network PC Card Ver.3, and get some WiFi connections around. It connects fine but sometimes it will go off and on with connecting. I'm running Windows XP Professional on it and the bubble at the bottom pops up saying connected Signal Strength Very Low. Is there a way to boost the Signal?

Their is a way, you need a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G Repeater - External. Price $70 - $100. Depending on wireless G or N network. I now a guy who tried to connect to their neighbors wireless internet, he bought one and it helped a bit. He did though connect to a wireless WiFi across the street with good signal.

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it
will work.

I am looking for a netwrok controller for my thinkpad r52


You have a PCMCIA and a USB slot so you could use either often the PCMCIA wireless cards with an aerial give a better reception if you need a ethernet cable controller than pcmcia may be better quite a few makes to choose from d-lnk, netgear, etc
I assume your PC does not have a network adapter - most do heres a link to the R52 driver site http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58931.html A set of user manuals are here http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=/product.do?template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&familyind=215918&machineind=0&modelind=0&partnumberind=0&subcategoryind=0&doctypeind=8&doccategoryind=0&operatingsystemind=49979&validate=true
check to see if you have an adapter Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc look for network adapters , click on the + sign and then see what adapters you have - if you have anything with 802.11 or wifi then you have a wireless adapter - if you have an ethernet or 10/100 listed then you have an ethernet controller - if you have any X or ! or ? then you may need to download the driver from the link above NOTE the wireless can be turned off via a switch or FN +f? key

have you tried uninstalling the drivers and re-installing again? or maybe you need some updates on your D-Link wifi card.

older dell laptops usually have driver issues so be patient with that.

Wireless card works, but can't get the computer but nothing no connection no internet


You can try this site:
http://www.z-cyber.net/WirelessLAN%20PCMCIA.htm

Your card is actually a BritePort™ Wireless LAN PCMCIA Card 2020, which was marketed by Creative. It's made by Broadxent, which is a British company. Either write to Creative tech support and ask for the driver, or contact Broadxent.

No wifi


The Fujitsu Lifebook S5582 does not have an integrated Wireless network card. This laptop was manufactured in 2001-2002. The integrated Wifi card was not generaly common in laptop computers until 2004.

So, you will need to buy a wireless adapter if you want to have wifi connectivity. Since this laptop is quite old, I would recommend a PCMCIA (a.k.a. PC card) adapter instead of a USB because it will be much lighter on the processor load.

You also have to be aware that using a wireless card will use more battery power and therefore shorten the expected autonomy of the laptop when running on battery.

Wireless network setup


Hi,

Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
