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

No sim card installed


Hello
The SIM tray near the battery allows you to connect to Internet or Dial. Sometime the Laptop/Netbook doesn't allow you to access your laptop/netbook. I suggest reseting your laptop will help you.

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.

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.

Wifi network


This laptop definately doesn't come with inbuilt wifi card, but does contain the necessary socket to either connect one internally (along with already built in aerial cables to connect it to:) or to use the PCMCIA card slot to insert/install a network card into the side of the machine.

ahhh..well...that is in the settings, under control panel. Not certain that it includes this option, but you can find that under control panel, and keyboards settings..you might need to add that option to your list. Not too hard to implement.

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.
