For PCI adapters, I go with TrendNet. I would recommend a USB adapter though. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they all pretty much do the same thing. Here is a link to a ton of them:

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

How do I setup wireless N technology on Dell Inspiron 560 Intel Core 2 Duo


Try following the instructions in the quick start guide. That is what it is for after all. The card goes inside the case, look on the back and see if there is anywhere to fit the antenna. If there isn't you will need to buy a wireless card(it doesn't have to be Dell or even a card- a USB wireless dongle will do the same job and is easier to fit and set up.

Cant find where to install a wireless card internally to my dell inspiron 2600


You can't install any cards internally as there isn't any room inside. If you want to add wireless capability you'll need a USB wireless adapter which you just plug in to one of the USB ports. This computer also has PCMCIA (card-bus) slots, but that's older technology. USB adapters are much easier to find.

I got a used dell latitude cp and i'm wondering if it has a wireless card, or how i can hook it up to my wireless internet


Not sure, you should see, amongst all the led's which show when the Power / DVD or HDD are running. A small led which either looks like an antenna or has one inscribed near it.

If no, there's probably no card.

However, to connect to your wireless internet you may be able to use a PCMCIA card or a USB dongle. Just ensure the one you get is capable of decrypting at the standard you require ie WEP or WPA.

Wireless Internet Not an Option...


Possibly a bad wireless adapter in your laptop (wireless card) One way to check is to get an external LAN card that plugs into a USB port and see if that works. I had this same problem with a Compaq computer and this solved the problem for me... Good Luck
