Hmm, i think the best card, or its not realy a card, its a "dongel", is a 3G Mobile dongel. You can use it wereever you are as long as you have a mobile signal.
You just connect it to your laptop via USB, make the settings for the the mobile broadband and VIOLA! you can use internet anywere!
Instructions and settings you will get together whit the "dongel" when u buy one.

Good luck to you
Nic

How i use the sim card internet in my lap top, probook6460b


I think yours is a "hp probook 6460b"?

GEE ~ your 6460B should already HAVE Internet cards installed? One for WiFi and one for WAN or CAT-5 Internet connections?

Here are TWO GREAT Links for you! It's easy to see what is installed with these Links.

Disabled because the hardware radio switch is off


Somewhere on your laptop there is a switch that turns your wifi card on or off, try to look for it. If you can't find it, go ahead and tell me what kind of lap top it is so I can try to figure it out.

I live nextdoor too a library which i am using them too connect my laptop with out a router.(eg: PC direct to Libra y router) yesterday it was super fast,but today it's slow i've tried all kinds of speed...


a great post and funny to read about snagging wifi.
lots of kids make a dish at school and use wifi from large distances.
so you are home right,. not in the library , right, and now expect the Libraries wifi to be fast at home , that far away,.
well it will never be fast ever. like that.
if you have a router that is 2 bands, there is no better routers.
the library only runs 2 bands I bet or even just 1.
so why not buy your own internet service,
or rig up this.

you can use a colander from moms kitchen

or other dish shaped objects to make this dish..
they need to be focused. and pointed to the library to work.
even card board, cut to a dish and aluminum foil works,

all this is fun stuff,
but never reliable.
at night they can have there router go off, on a timer.

Trying to get a wifi for an old HP Pavilion lap top and they ask for the conplete model name. Where do I find it.


Bellow laptop there's a sticker with this data, but the easiest way to add WiFi connection is buying an USB WiFi adapter, but before check if you have USB ports, it doesn't, it should have a PCMCIA (also called PC Card) slot, then you could get a WiFi PCMCIA adapter compatible with you operating system.

Card slot? and wireless internet.


Hi Jenny,

Most laptops would have a slot on the left side for PCMCIA, a standard for small, credit card-sized devices. Often actually, there would be two (2) of them, one on top of the other with a plastic dummy card inserted. These cards could be an add-on modem, NIC/LAN, WiFin even a USB hub or anything else that is PC compatible.

As to whether USB is better than PCMCIA, to my knowledge, USB has a better data transfer speed and to my experience, USB has better radio signals for WiFi. So I guess, USB wins hands down.

Re wireless Internet for interstate travel - honestly no idea, I am across the globe where you are. But as a rule of thumb, if you are getting a subscription with an ISP, then it should be one that provides WiFi Internet in as many states/areas that you intend to travel. Additionally, their coverage (footprint) should be the biggest/widest possible. However, to my understanding, there are a lot of hotspots in most cities.states that do provide free open access through their system.

Incidentally, there are ISPs that provide Internet connectivity using cellphone technology (3G) and presumably, there would be Internet wherever there is a mobile phone signal.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cant find my wireless card in device manager in acer travel mate 2300


Hi,

In some Acer models, there is a software switch in Start/All Programs/Acer Launch Manager. If this is missing, you need to reinstall since even with the WiFi hard switch activated, this application is required. This is so especially if a new/clean/OEM install of the OS has been done on the laptop.

In some models, there is a hard switch either at the front or at the side to activate the internal wifi (and bluetooth). Still in other, there is button on the leading edge of the computer which also serves as an indicator lamp,

Some models also have WiFI enable/disable in the BIOS/CMOS setup.

Still others have a button along with the Easy-launch strip (top) together with the those for email , bluetooth , Acer Arcade & others.

As shown above, depending on the specific model/region version of your laptop, the WifI activation can be varied.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
